Merry Christmas To All.....



The excitement is building here in our house as tomorrow is the big day.
The stockings are hung, the presents are wrapped & there are lots of yummy smells lingering in the air.
Yesterday Molly & I had fun with our annual tradition of making gingerbread. This year we made these cute little reindeer.




We had to do a quality control test of course & I can tell you they are scrumptious.
I think these two cheeky fur balls are trying to look sweet & innocent in the hopes of getting to taste a gingerbread too.







Well we are off to go look at all the Christmas lights so I'd better get moving.
I sincerely hope everyone has a happy & magical Christmas. Eat, drink & be merry & please drive safely if you are on the roads.

Yay!!!! It's Holiday Time.....

I'm so happy to be on holidays. It's been such a busy year & I'm really looking forward to recovering & recharging my batteries.
It was delicious to have a sleep in on Friday morning. No alarm clock going off, no morning rush, just sweet sleep, aaahhhhh!!!!
Thursday night was Molly's end of year concert at school. All the classes performed wonderful musical items & it was a great night.
We also had a very proud moment when Molly received the "Book Award" for her class. It was quite a surprise considering she's only been at the school for half a year. Her smile was a mile wide when she went up to receive her award.




She's dressed a little odd because it was her costume for her class item which was several songs from Mary Poppins.

She had tandem teachers this year & they were both the sweetest, kindest women & made Molly's transition so much easier.
These are the gifts that I put together for them. I found the cute little buckets in a shop which I added some embellishments to & then filled them with yummy Lindor balls.




I am getting so excited about Christmas & enjoying these few days before the big day with wrapping last minute presents & watching lots of soppy Christmas movies. Molly & I will be making our gingerbread soon, it's a tradition that we love doing together. This year we are going to make reindeer shaped gingerbread.

I hope you are enjoying the lead up to Christmas & possibly getting a sleep in or two as well :)

Christmas Cards for My Cuties....

Hi again :)
I wanted to make a card for each of the little cuties in my life. I was in The Reject Shop the other day (I heard what you just said Chloe, LOL ) & I saw this cute sheet of Christmas stickers with little animals & Santas etc. I thought they'd be perfect for kids cards & they were only $2.50.
Today I sat down & made some cards with them.

This one is for Miss Molly





This is for Tilly, my grand daughter.





And this is for little Ollie, my grandson.





I've used all sorts of bits & pieces on these cards. I cut 3" circles on my Cricut, Labels 3 Nestabilities & assorted papers.

The sheet of stickers had a large & small size of each different sticker so I decided to decorate the inside of the cards too using the smaller sticker.





I hope you have fun making some Christmas cards for the special little people in your life.
Bye for now :)
