Handmade Christmas Challenge

This time of the year always seems like a tough slog to Dec 25th. The kids are wrecked, I'm tired of juggling work and home and the weather is at its Melbourne finest, hot one day, pouring with rain the next. I tend to refer to it as walking up hill with cement shoes. Can anyone else relate or is it just me?

That Christmas light at the end of the tunnel is getting nearer and I've decided to bring forward our Christmas decorations. I usually wait until the first weekend in December but we need some good cheering up and motivation to see us through so I'm dusting off my Bing CD, untangling the lights and cranking up the festive cheer.


This week we made Christmas cards for my children's school friends

And, I've found some inspiration for making some gift tags.

What wonderful creations are you making for Christmas? Have you spied someone else's creation that would be perfect for a loved one?

How strange to talk to someone on their Saturday when it`s still our Friday here!lol I think we`re all needing a little cheering up right now (it`s just started snowing here so my best laid plans for the weekend have gone somewhat astray!)so cranking up the Festive Cheer seems like a great idea to me!Think I`ll join you.
