Christmas Cheer

Keep your chin up...this time next week Christmas day will all be over!
I have to admit that Christmas is not my favorite time of the year, I LOVE Christmas day, but the build up drives me barmy! I guess that is because I'm never organised!

Last night we attended the Fire Brigade Christmas party, and had a wonderful time. Andrew had a Christmas brandy, a Christmas Port, and a wine and beer...needless to say he slept very well!!

The night before that we attended the 'staff Christmas party' our lovely Principal was brave and had this at her home, once again we had a lovely evening amongst wonderful company. Sharing the Christmas cheer really is what makes Christmas special, have to say that I'm so over the Christmas shopping part!

Anyway, below are snap shots of a few Christmas goodies I have created lately.

First up here is a gift bag with matching card.
... and the template to make your own.

Simply enlarge this to what ever size you wish,
cut out the shape,
score the fold lines,
and add a drop of glue to the right hand side tab.
 Add handles and your done!

 Hmmmm what to do with that box of choc'ies...

 Take one polystyrene ball,
poke a painted piece of tree branch in (for the truck)
Use double sided tape and attach chocolates to the ball.

 Add punched out leaves and hand made flowers if you wish to

 ..add a gift tag...and your done!

 Last year Christmas photos ...I know I'm a little late getting these scrapped, but here they are...

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
