Evidence of a good time

I can't believe it flew by so quickly. One minute we were putting out snacks for Santa and the reindeers and the next, here I am the day after boxing day feeling almost like I blinked and missed it! I suppose when you're having lots of fun with family around it does pass quickly, but somehow this Christmas seems to have been and gone quicker than ever!
That said, Beth was delighted that all of the snacks she laid out were eaten, and we all had some super duper pressies to open and enjoy, and spent Christmas day and Boxing day surrounded with our wonderful family, having lots of fun and laughter....and yummy food!

Christmas Eve

The gifts are bought/made and wrapped, the baking is done, and the food shopping has all been stored away for the next few days, all that remains for us to do is wait for Santa!

This year is special as it's my niece Caitlin's first Christmas...I wonder what she'll make of it all?

We're gonna head off to Looe in a little while for our traditional family gathering for a walk on the beach and fish 'n' chips lunch together..yum!

Wishing everyone a very happy, safe and warm Christmas xx

This is what my craft space looks like a the's a bit of a tip! I've got loads of stuff piled high on the floor too! I really need to have a big tidy up, but don't seem to want to make the time to do it, which is silly really coz I hate it being in such a mess.
My December scrapagogo kit arrived is fabulous as always! Thanks Lorraine and Janice!

Hmmm Christmas cards

Whilst I'm feeling quite organised for Christmas this year, I have not made very many cards yet! In fact, I think I'm gonna be buying some....the shame of it!
Actually I'm not gonna feel guilty about buying a few, since it will free up some time to spend doing nice Christmassy stuff with the rest of the family and catching up with my scrapbooking.
Here are 2 that I have made though, for my niece and nephew. I love this range of's Colourful Christmas from My Minds Eye.

Reindeer Food

Beth loves to make reindeer food, so here she is making it.

And here's the end result!

I've been to my first party this Christmas today...good fun it was too...not sure I'll feel the same way after the third or forth, but hey ho, it's only once a year!

Got the lurgy!

A quick post for a quick moan coz I'm feelin sorry for myself! I've had a cold on and off for the past four weeks and I'm getting really tired of it now! I feel grotty, and tired and miserable! I've not done any crafting at all this week, so I'm hoping to make a start on the calendar I'm making for my parents tomorrow...
