Another Christmas Layout...

Only 17 days to go!! Excitement levels are running very high in our house, and the kids almost can't stand all this waiting. I've been trying to keep them busy during the day, but with the rainy weather we've been having, there's only so much you can do! At night though, we pull out our collection of Christmas books and talk about nothing but Christmas.

Now, I have to tell you about this one particular book, which I think is THE most awesome Christmas book, especially as kids get that bit older...


Santa Claus! It's not actually a story, it's written more like a non-fiction book, with lots of details that explain all those questions that kids ask, like how Santa gets around the world in one night, and so many more. I think I'd be a bit lost without this book sometimes!


It's definately well worth looking out for if you haven't got it.

And here's another Christmas layout, this one is in the latest DoCrafts magazine, along with all the instructions...


That photo is from last Christmas, when I got like 2 hours sleep on Christmas Eve because the kids wouldn't go to sleep, and then woke up super early. How mean am I, making them pose for photos before they rip into their pressies? They must think I'm so annoying! Here's a little close up, I made some of those rolled flowers out of vellum...


Well, that's all from me for now. I'm think I'm going to brave the shops with the kids today. Wish me luck!
