On the first day of Christmas

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 ♥

Backpacks & Cushions

The backpack is complete thanks to a wonderful and very, very easy tutorial over at Nikki’s
 
It’s for library day at kinder but we are using it everywhere.  
 
It makes me smile.  I love kid’s drawings, they make me happy.
He drew it and I made it, what great teamwork.  
 

I love it and so does he.

 

Something we also love is the cushion swap loving we received in the mail….AMAZING!!
Thank you Michelle and thank you Vic, you are just awesome.

I love it, especially those teeny tiny ants marching along!

 
 
How’s your creative day going, why don’t you let us have a peek.
 

Hugs ♥

Last week…

 
was so jam packed that this week I just want it to be as boring as possible.  
I know it’s not going to happen, but I can wish can’t I
last week was the last week of term and Easter happenings were all around

 

 

I baked some Easter gingerbread for the kids at school

I made an Easter bonnet for Amelie using a flower tutorial from here (I originally saw it on someone else’s blog but I cannot remember where, if it was yours please let me know)

I had an order for a 60th birthday cake which I absolutely loved making

 
gingerbread numbers and a chocolate layer cake

 

so this week, I intend on using the yummy homemade soap I received in the mail, thank you for the surprise sweet lady
 
this week I am going to bake some naan bread from my new cookbook from the loveliest of friends (you are awesome) which I am absolutely loving
and this week we are going to enjoy the first week of school holidays and I will be smiling as I am SO proud that my girl got through her first term of prep, exhausted but filled with inspiration and willingness to keep on learning (love you baby girl ♥)
What are you up to this week friends?
 
Whatever it is, I hope it’s filled with lots of giggles, hugs and love ♥
