A Very Festive Post

Just thought I would update you with my festive things! I made these place cards for my Quick and Easy Christmas project for The Studio, you see can my instructions for them on the blog here. They will be brightening up our festive dinner table tomorrow!
 Here pages 6 to 12 of my Christmas journal, page 5 is missing as I haven't finished it yet!! I will show you it again when it's done!
Day 6 - The festive lights in the new shopping area in Bath, very nice twinkling snowflakes!
 Day 7 - I spend to afternoon in helping the children at school learn about electricity, not very christmassy!
 Day 8- A wriggly nativity, I went to watch the children's nativity at school. I was asked to make some donkey masks for 4 little boys to wear. That's the photo of them, they did look a bit funny but they looked better on stage! The play was brilliant, they did really well. I used one of my handmade embellishments for my shop on this page
 Day 9 - I had another singing lesson. It was a year ago that my sister and brother-in-law gave me the money to have the lessons so I thought it would be nice to include it. My singing teacher had my singing in Italian!! Not as bad as it's sounds when you get your head around it! Another embellishment form my shop!
 Day 10 - I made some more Christmas cards, this was my card for the challenge at The studio.
 Day11- I baby sat my little nephew, he was a little angel for me, no trouble at all and went fast a asleep after a read him a story. The blue circle, snowflake is another handmade embellishment from my shop!
 Day 12 - Picking our tree we went to a local place where they grow them and you can pick which one you want and they cut it down for you!
 I haven't done much more of my journal as I been busy decoration a wedding guest book and memory box for someone who asked me to make it for them, it had to be finished now as they have just booked a holiday and won't be back before the wedding! I will show you it soon. So I need a big catch up on my journal I know what I putting in it so it's just finding the time to do it, hopefully after Christmas I can catch up with it, I will be going up to New Year with it like last year.

I forgot to show you my sister's Christmas Cards, she decided she just wanted a black stamp on a white card, not very festive but they were quick and easy and they did look effective. I had to make 50 of them in 6 different designs the stamps are by Papermania, would you believe!!

The big tree had a little gold star on the top!

Right better go and ice the Christmas cake!!

I wish you a very Merry Christmas, hope you have a lovely time and I'll be back with more after the big day! xxx
