I think this is the last lot of Christmas photos. I guess that means I'll have to find new stuff to write about - maybe even make some new stuff - it's always a bit of a challenge to get back into the crafting after the holiday season, somehow I never know where to start when faced with a clean slate and no Christmas tasks!
I've started the New Year by changing to the new post editor on Blogger - so we'll see how that works out - I may well scuttle back to the old and familiar one quite quickly though!
Anyway here are a few Christmas pics
This is our tree on Christmas morning, complete with the stockings I made years ago and which are now looking a bit tired. I wonder if I'll remember that and make new ones in time for Christmas 2010?
Next up is a close up of the parcels under the tree from the other side - if you look closely you can see some of the decorations I made to pretty up the parcels
Christmas dinner in our family is just not complete without Yorkshire Puddings. I always open the oven door with my fingers crossed and breathe a sigh of relief when they come out like they did this time - not bad, eh?
This is Happy Me when I found my wonderful iPod Touch in the last parcel Hubby gave me. I just love it to bits! I'm also "modelling" the gorgeous new pashmina that was in another package. Spoiled? moi?
Ok, next up is the pizza-box style box I made to present niece Izzy's gift in - I'd much rather use a box for giving squishy, difficult to wrap gifts as they always look like a dog's breakfast just wrapped in paper, don't they? This one was for a little Radley purse so worth concealing the contents for a little while longer.
Thanks to Gez for sharing the original instructions for this one during a cyber crop - I changed the measurements etc to fit the purse and it worked out pretty well.
Papers are lovely MME "Pretty Please" (I think)
Crikey, it's getting colder and colder, I think I might have to give the heating a boost in a minute. I hope you're all managing to stay safe and warm today, I'm just hoping that the snow that so much of the UK is covered with at the moment stays away - we only got rid of the remnants of the pre-Christmas snow we had here last Wednesday. I can do without the stuff.
Yeah, yeah, call me a misery-guts if you like but I'd prefer just to see it on TV hehe
Right, I really do need to make a start on some craft stuff so I'm off.
