The New Year has well and truly begun and I am welcoming 2014 with open arms and hoping that this year brings back the inspiration needed to come back here and stay for a while.
During my break from here, I became comfortable in the instagram community because I love the daily pics, the creativity, the beautiful inspiring community and of course the conversations. I love that you can post
a pic and get people talking. I love that I don’t have to post a pic but I can still pop in whenever I want to and have a conversation with someone. I love that I don’t feel like I HAVE to, but that I WANT to. I love the support. I love that sometimes we all share the same problems. I love that we can help each other with our queries. I love that there will always be someone awake at some strange hour to click a “heart” on your photo.
But you know what, I miss it here, I have been missing it for a while. Truth is, once you are gone for some time it’s so much harder to get back.
A friend recently told me that she returned to blogging because “…I want to say more!” and it’s true, sometimes you just need to say a bit more.
So Cath, this post, and recipe are especially for you.
Unexpected messages that make me smile
Happy December to you all, the countdown has officially started and our advent calendar is up.
The kids both loved decorating each box but they don’t know what’s inside yet, first noodle box will be revealed after school.
I love getting the kids involved in things and because this is really all for them, I thought it would be the perfect way to countdown to Christmas.
Pegs decorated with washi tape and hung on twine.
There are craft treats or sweet treats in every box and to avoid disappointment, there are two treats in every box.
They both agreed that they will take it in turns each day to open a box and they get to choose which treat in the box is theirs.
I even included some special notes as I know Amelie is loving her new reading skills.
So what are you up to for the first day of Christmas?
Do you have an advent calendar?
I’d love to see it if you have posted it.
Happy creating to you ♥
Hand carved stamps, quite relaxing to make and good for some lunchbox surprises.
Happy creating friends.
I don’t know what to say, you guys are fabulous…thanks ♥✗
