Secret Santa

here is a photo of my Secret Santa present i bought for Quenie at work ... she wasn't there to receive her present so i don't know what she thought of it

We had to spend $20 and buy something that started with the first letter of our name so that the person receiving the present had to guess who it was from

Inside the box was a Kewpie Doll Necklace and three badges one with a picture of Kermit, one with a picture of a kitten and one that said Kapow  ...i forgot to take a photo of the pressies before i wrapped them all up but this is what the necklace looked like ...

Today Miss T and I went to see The Nutcracker performed by the Brisbane City Youth Ballet ....our friend Samara was one of the dancers and she danced so beautifully  ...she has such a beautiful stage presence.

Here is a photo of Samara with Taylah after the performance. (this is one of the great things BCYB do is have all the dancers come out to the foyer in costume after the performance is over so you can get autographs and photos with the dancers.)

Day 350/365 Photo

tonight i made some christmas bunting using paper doilies and the off pieces of my EK Christmas Tree punch

I love how it looks and so easy ...just fold doily in half and sew tree on and keep adding doilies and trees until you run out ...i wanted to add some ribbon but as it is just cotton thread holding it i don't think it would hold anymore weight.

Christmas Cards 2011

This year i have made the same card but in two different colour ways ...firstly i made the yellow,grey and white cards as i love this colour combo ... but as I normally match my cards to my colour theme i made more cards this time in hot pink and black ...while it is a simple card design they were still very time consuming to make 50 cards....
