Busy creating not blogging......

We here go......

I have been making stacks of things for Christmas Gifts for all different people and reasons. Now I have found 5 minutes to share some.......

The little candle set for my Secret Santa Swap in Friday3 Stamp Club. Jodie organised the swap. These were inspired by Andrea Walford Christmas ideas from last year. Cheap Candles with Glass Glitter around the top, Christmas rub- ons from last year and handmade box with insert and acetate lid....a bit of Cherry Cobbler tulle, dsp and a label to finish.

The triple candle sets where a little gift for my darling friends, Shandelle, Mary and Sanchia. They shared a wonderful afternoon Christmas treat with me.....We are all sooo busy and we never get to "stop and smell the roses" so we went for High Tea at McMahons Restaurant at Quay West in Brisbane.....Very posh....we had a marvellous afternoon.


Allanna had a 10 day Secret Santa at her school......Crazy hey????
But they have to give ten small presents (not more than a few dollars each day) over two weeks. It didn't matter about the gifts......They were going to be the BEST wrapped presents ever with Mum (a Stampin'Up demo)....hahaha

A little box of hand stamped cookies complete with handmade bow, thanks to Kirsty Brown's tutorial at Heartfelt Brisbane.

A beautiful decorated bottle of musk lollies.

The best way to wrap a Chap stick lip balm.....Stampin'Up fabric and DSP and a cute little ginger bread man stamp...

There were a few more but we got carried away and forgot to take pictures....LOL

And a little gift from me for Allanna's Grade 3 pupils .... A little reindeer candy cane. 

Back with more soon....

Mum's 70th Birthday

November 17 was the day....

Mum's Surprise 70th Birthday....and SURPRISE her we did. It fell on a Saturday this year so that helped. It is extremely hard for us to keep anything from Mum but we managed a wonderful surprise. We gathered about 50 family and friends in Ipswich, even her sister from  Melbourne. You see, it makes it even harder because we all work together on a daily basis in the family business. Mum doesn't work and only visits each week, so it was a task to make sure no-one dropped the bomb.
Mum loves flowers and has one of the best garden in Ipswich, so the room was decorated in flowers and pink everything.

I was inspired by a card I saw by the one and only super talented, Teneale Williams, for the invitations and made party favours with the new petite purse die.

Stamp Sets- Papaya Collage, Elementary Elegance SAB2012, French Foliage, Vintage Jumbo Wheel
Cardstock and ink- Primrose petals, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Accessories- Crumb Cake Tulle, Pearls, Victoria Lace
Tools- XL oval punch, Emboss folders- polka dots & designer frames, sewing machine

The little petite purse party favours.....crazy to make 55 of these... but aren't they so cute. I filled them with Ernest Hillier chocolates but only three chocolates fitted. They were larger than normal ones......hahaha
We held it at the Metro Ipswich International Hotel, a beautiful 3 course dinner and a magician. It was fabulous and Mum enjoyed herself immensely.

A marvellous memory.....
