Christmas countdown advent calender

Hi there,

At last, it's December, my absolute favourite time of year. I love everything Christmas, and thankfully so do my three girls and hubby gets into it too. I have a really bad habit of making christmas stuff as gifts but not finishing my own, so this year I made the effect do make things for my own family (me). I've had this kaisercraft advent calender kit in my draw for a couple of years and when I bought Teresa Collins' Santas List papers and add-ons, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. So here it is.
I have also entered this in the Simon Says Stamp and Artful crafts challenges.

Artful Crafts Heidi Swapp Challenge

I love all things Heidi Swapp, since meeting her and taking her class at CAD in May, I've been addicted. So when I saw that Artful Crafts had her on Centre Stage this month I was excited and had to participate. So here's my lay our featuring my eldest daughter, inspired by the sketch and using HS product.

Challenge time

Well so much for trying to post once a month, sorry I'm just not that great at this blogging thing, with 3 young girls there isn't much time between school, Kindy, gymnastics, soccer,swimming lessons and housework, I don't get a lot of "me" time. But this past weekend my DH gave me some time out to hang out with my BF and we even did a little scrapping. With decided to give the Scrappin Patch challenge a go.

scanned an old photo of my Mum on my new Canon scanner/printer, which I am loving. And used up some old Stampin Up DSP, the staple & masking I found most difficult to include (the butterflies are masked underneath).

Farewell card

One of the carers at daycare left recently, she had taken care of both Miss 3 & Miss 5 and was greatly loved by both. We will truly miss her. I made this card for her, it was cased but I apologise for not remembering where from.

Other than this card there hasn't been a lot of time for crafting as I've been helping out my in-laws, I have a friend coming over on Thursday night to scrapbook and I hope to finish off a couple of incomplete pages.

Happy belated Valentines Day

We don't usually go over board but this year I put a little surprise package in hubby's lunch bag ( photo below), along with a phot of our girls for his office. He came home with roses, wine & yummy Indian takeaways for dinner.
I had fun with the washi tape.

A tidy craft table

Well here it is, a tidy craft table. I'm still shuffling things around while I find out where things are best housed so have only labeled my draws with post-it notes for now. Lets see how long it remains so organised for.

First day of school...

And a new chapter begins. Our eldest daughter started school today, she was up at 6am getting ready as she was super excited, she didn't show any shyness and was happy for me to go and leave her in class, she made me proud. No tears, but I did feel nervous for her as we were walking to school, it was strange. Can't believe my baby girl is 5 and going to school already, where have those years gone? Now I'm hanging out with my two younger daughters waiting till we can go get her. Hope she's had a great day

Daycare thank you

Tomorrow is Miss K's last day at daycare, she's been going to the same daycare for 4 years and a couple of the carers have been there since she started so it's a big day for our family. I've been busy making some little thank you gifts, I've put some Hersey's Kisses in the pillow boxes and have put the carers initial on the label.
I've also used this for the Southern Girls challenge this week, which was to make something to say "thanks".

Craft space - before

Ok so here's a picture of my craft table in an utter mess. I hope to post a photo of a more organised space within the week.

Happy New Year

Ok so my New Years resolution is to update my blog at least once a week, and now I have the iPad app I hope I can manage this. My eldest daughter turned 5 on Boxing Day so no longer can I say I have 3 under 5, and now have a school girl. I can't believe how fast the last 5 years have gone. There hasn't been a lot of time for scrap booking lately but my darling hubby rearranged our bedroom so that I can permanently have a craft table in the corner, now I just have to organise it. Will post a photo soon.
I wish every a happy and safe 2013
