Merry Christmas Everyone

No blogging for me this past week, I have been so busy unpacking cases and getting ready for Christmas... but here's a card I made for Papercraft Inspirations magazine - all done with punches. I love these little mice!



So since I got home, the tree has been decorated - we have an artificial one, gave up on the real thing years ago when I was still picking up pine needles in July!


 with some new Dunkin Donuts ornaments to add to my collection......






I love putting glittery twigs into tall vases and hanging baubles off the twigs.....



 I found these gorgeous little cable knit stockings in Jo-Anns, so the children all have one, stuffed with chocolate coins and candy canes for after lunch......


I keep the fireplace decorations quite simple......


Then it was on to present wrapping, this lot are all for the little ones. Doting grandma? Me?



and their parents presents look rather more sophisticated.......


and lastly, it was a mad dash to the supermarket for a huge shop, well, after three months away the cupboard was well and truly bare. Grateful thanks must go to M & S for the wonderful range of 'ready mades', there hasn't been time for a lot of cooking......

So all in all, I don't know about you, but I am very glad that the world didn't come to an abrupt halt on Friday - I have things to do, places to go, people to see, and this year Christmas is going to be really special with all my chicks under my roof. So I will be back, with photos, and some crafty stuff once the fat man in the red suit has been and gone. In the meantime, I hope you all have a really lovely Christmas, wherever you are, and however you are spending it.

Peace, Joy and Love to you all x
