Busy, busy

I have been so disorganised this christmas, only just started my shopping yesterday! Hubby feeling a lot better, kids excited with only 4 days of school left, started working on my layout for kraftitup challenge - non-traditional christmas colour, pretty easy.  Shopping with a friend again tonight, hopefully I will start wrapping and put them under our beautiful fresh tree by the weekend. Ciao

December happenings...

With the hubby out of action due to surgery I have been extra busy. Kids finish school next week - haven't even thought about pressies for the teachers that I can make in next to no time for next to no money, any suggestions? Christmas preparations are coming along decidedly slowly for me, I'm normally finished my shopping with gifts wrapped under the tree by now, but will need to spend all weekend at shopping centres I fear, and put hubby to use wrapping next week.
 Friends for dinner tomorrow, haven't cleaned the house yet, washing piling up since we've had so many storms lately and cupboards are bare. Classes at Fat Cat Scrappin' should clear my mind tonight and tomorrow afternoon, nothing like a little "me time" sans family to get me back on track and in the right frame of mind to deal with the day to day!

My Daily December

Inspired by the all conquering Ali Edwards I am embarking on a Daily December project. My little angel and shepherd had their Christmas Concert last night and this will be the subject of December 1st. Just quietly, the halo on my angel had slipped considerably by the first Noel, but was back on straight for Christmas where the gum trees grow. Little shepherd sang beautifully.

Have been busy trying to finish some projects I have on the go. I am really not much of a sewer, except on scrapbook pages, but managed to finish this cute handbag for my sister in law's birthday. I used a Rosalie design? At the races - sorry couldn't find the packaging, but thought it turned out alright!
