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.
