Advent Calendar

So I bought the Advent Calendar from my local KaiserCraft outlet before the start of December and I have only just managed to get it finished. We get a few days use out of it at least! I bought a little wooden Santa card holder and I am going to use it to hold a Christmas photo in every year. I think I will take the base and the spring off the santa so that it fits better inside the box.


Christmas Nappy is in use!

Well the newborn nappies I made for my scrumptious baby boy have been packed away and out have come the small size! My gorgeous son is 6weeks old now and he's been in the small nappies for the past two weeks, since he hit approx 4.5kg. Excellent timing as with Christmas only a few days away it means he fits into the one and only Christmas nappy I made for him, awesome!

A Christmas Wreath

I was in my local Kaiser Craft outlet recently and came across these Star Wreaths. I thought it would look great and my older boys bedroom door.

I covered each star with various Christmas themed paper, tied some green and red ribbon on for some bows, glued it all together and project finished!

Secret Santa again!

I was part of the Secret Santa on a parenting forum I am a member of. My recipient liked hand made things and the colours blue and light purple, among other things. I opted to make a photo album using one of Kaiser Craft's Beyond The Page albums. I was really happy with the result. I also added some scented sachets to the gift.


Secret Santa!

One secret santa I participated in was with some lovely mums and a dad all of which had babies due in November! I knew that my recipient liked reading and cooking (particularly curries) so I put together a cook book, some spices and a wooden spoon. I decided to add in something else special for her gorgeous newborn daughter, so created a Beyond The Page photo album. using a Kaiser Craft "baby" album. I made it so that there was space to add some small photos but also so that it doesn't have to have photos added to it. I posted my secret santa gifts off last week, my recipient has received them and loves them which I am really pleased about :)

Christmas is fast approaching!

We are now into December and it wont be long until Christmas is here! I love love love Christmas time, plenty of festivities with family & friends!

I participated in two secret santa's this year and posted off their gifts today. I hope both my recipients like their gifts. And I can't wait for the postman to deliver my surprise packages too!

I always like to put the Christmas tree up on the 1st Dec however we were so busy yesterday and today that it is still sitting in it's box in the roof. The next few days are just as busy but hopefully we will have our Christmas tree up by the end of the weekend.


MCN gift

I have sent one of the small nappies I made to a lovely friend of mine who has also recently had a little girl. I hope that it fits her gorgeous daughter well. I also sent with it a matching ribbon blankie.
