What I Watched

I was flicking around channels yesterday and came across a movie from 1990 that I hadn't seen for years.

I loved it! I forgot how much I like Cher as an actor. I then flicked through my DVD collection and came across Silkwood and Moonstruck, so I might have a "Cherathon" next weekend.

Ist Finish for 2017

This is a Carolyn Manning Design from the 2016 JCS Ornament Issue. I did have to improvise a little bit as the snowman was supposed to be holding a string of pom poms, but I didn't have any on hand.

More Festive Goodies

First off is this years christmas tree. Very minimalist!

Made from a magazine, very therapeutic all that folding LOL

Now for my 12 Days of Christmas.

Day 3 - two cute little kits.
Day 4 - Cute Kitchen Timer, crumbs included LOL
Day 5 - Bobbins
Day 6 - included a needle minder, I have always wanted one of these.
So how is everyone's Christmas prep coming along. I hope to finish off my shopping today or tomorrow. I have one last grocery shop to do, which will be Friday as I am not going near the shops on Christmas eve.

Thankfully I don't need to wrap to much...Yay for gift cards LOL!!!

But I do need to go out and buy myself a trifle/salad bowl as I am am down to make trifle for Christmas day.

The forecast for Christmas Day is looking to be about 35 degrees Celsius which isn't to bad. 

Well that is about it for now. I hope to post later in the week with the rest of my 12 days of Christmas.

Finally Have Time To Post

Wow where has the year gone!

I may as well jump straight into a Christmas post.

At work we decorate our areas and I decided to go with a Star Wars theme. I picked up the paper at Typo (three rolls for $10, the excess is coming home with me and being put to good use wrapping presents). The tree was about $5 dollars from Big W years ago and the decorations were the toys out of Kinder Surprises.

So with out further ado here is my decorating for Christmas 2016......

Now I have pulled back on the number of exchanges I do due to the high cost of postage but the one I do do each year is through a Yahoo Cross Stitching Group. The exchange is called 12 days of Christmas. You send your partner 12 wrapped presents and one is opened each day from the 13th December. This year Lynne from Scotland sent me a parcel and so far this is what I have received.

Day one/ A cute little cross stitched hand towel.
Day two/ Christmas Tree Candle
I love this exchange and can't wait to open the rest of my pressies.

Two Posts In A Week

I know, I know. Blog posting with me is either feast or famine and apparantley August is heading towards the feast side of things but I just had to share.....

I picked up my August Fandom of the Month Box this morning on my way to work and just had to share what it contained.

Now this should give you a clue - it was on top and is a postcard and a fridge magnet.

Do you know what this months theme is yet? Another clue to follow:

Yes it is a HOGWARTS themed box and it contained:
A bracelet made up of all the Houses badges (now not sure if I will wear this but it can be repurposed)

Earrings - which if you look closely have Hogwarts on them (these I am currently wearing)

A Fat Lady necklace and she moves when you twist it from side to side (now I will probably wear this but take it off the chain and perhaps put it on a ribbon or something)
And last but not least.......

A Whomping Willow ring, this is awesome and have already had comments about.

For about $33 Aus a month this is a great little treat to myself. Now wonder what the August box will bring. Oh and I promise I will take pics from the beginning of the opening process :)
