Merry Christmas, and welcome to this months Bloghoppers blog post!  This month the girls are all struggling with the Christmas time of the year so it's appropriate that this theme Christmas.  Our House has been struck with the summer flu, so between that and work commitments Christmas is looking rather sad.....


But let me tell you that I have been busy on the Christmas making... for the last 5 years Christmas has meant secret Santa Swaps online with Chookyblue's Famous SSCS

I so enjoy this swap, its from a group of ladies who all love things handmade, and the rules are simple!! Give what you would be happy to receive... and I so love giving and receiving. There is something heart-warming opening a making a gift with love, that you know will be received in the same tone....

In this past 5 years I have made new friends that I chat with on-line from all over our wonderful globe. It's so nice to put up my ornaments every year as this is part of the swap to include with your gift an ornament to be opened on receiving the gift and then the gift must wait till Christmas day.

So my gift has left the land down under for a trip to a greener cooler temp this year, I can't reveal exactly where just incase my swap buddy is snooping - yes no peeking ....nor can I show you what I sent But I can give you some sneaks.

I can also let you know that my sleigh has arrived all the way from Finland, thank you so much to for my wonderful ornament, its waiting till the tree is up and i find the perfect spot - but i love your hand work Satu and the handmade gift tag on my gift is just adorable....




I also have been creating for a Christmas Market that is Tomorrow if you happen to be out and about at Bingara Estate near Wilton - pop on over and pick up a Christmas gift or two....







Well, off to more packing up market supplies and I am putting on a Carol or Two just to get me in the spirit, so that the tree making energy will happen and the tree will go up on Sunday just a day late....


Here is a list of the other ladies taking part in this hop. Take yourself on an inspiring Christmas blog hop!!!

  2. Oh, I'm so relieved that you have already received it! I know snowflakes might be quite odd Christmas decoration there in Australia, but they are so typical in our finnish Christmas. By the way you can hang the snowflakes together or separate them into individual ornaments. with snowy hugs Satu
