happy Holidays

We had a nice christmas with family this year...we went to my grandads for the first time & hopefully not the last time for christmas lunch

The kids all got some fabulous presents from santa & even i got some cricut cartridges & the provocraft cricut bag...yay me!!

Today my cousin mandy is getting married...she lives on the other side of australia now so sadly we couldnt make it over for the wedding as it was so close to christmas & everything is more expensive at this time of the year

I made some glittered glass baubles a few days before christmas...they were so easy to make..i used some vinyl to personalize them with names

We also made our own mini gingerbread houses...the kids had lots of fun decorating their own with lollies!

In the new year i hope to stick to my plan of using all of my cartridges i have! Over at Scrappy go lucky they will be having a challenge to use upto 5 carts a week!
i dont know if i could be that dedicated or even if i have all that they have ....but i will give it a go!

Also Sawyer's Place have some fantastic new washi tapes!! I hope to buy some of the gorgeous boys design of robots & cogs in the new year not to mention some of the other fabulous washi tapes!!!

hope to catch up to you all in the new year

So much crafting yet such little time!!

Hi all

Its felt like ages since i last has taken over & preparing for Christmas & birthdays has taken my time.

Lots has happened since my last daughter had her dance concert & she did extremely well & won the Trophy on the night in her level...i was so proud of her i couldn't even speak...i had no idea it was coming!! my sister & mum cheered for her as i was speechless in the crowd
The following day my son received 3 letters from a high school he tried out scholarships for & received all 3 he went for!! Totally proud of him too
My youngest just had his end of year concert for kindy & we are so proud of him also...he did really well singing & moving to the song as he should.

OK back to what i have been doing craft wise for Xmas & birthdays
For Christmas i made the teachers a gift basket each...inside i placed some partylite candles in a Xmas tree box i made using my cricut..for the teacher aides i made a snowflake box using my cricut & decorated with some sawyers place washi tape....i also etched some mirrored candle plates & votive candle holders using my cricut & etching cream.

I also made some sweet treats for the kids to take to school for their class mates
& some baubles for the teachers gift baskets

My daughters friend/cousin just had her birthday party so i made these for her...she had a sleepover make up party so i made some favor boxes for her mum to fill & then made her birthday card & also a Justin beiber frame as she loves justin..i used my cricut gelly pens to make it

ok well i think that will do for sure all these pictures are plenty!!
hope to get back & blog before xmas day
