Merry Christmas

Just to wanting wish you all a
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

My folks are coming to Perth from the Gold Coast for a week over Xmas and we will be busy. I can't imagine there will be any crafting time until the new year. There will however be lots of baking and cooking.

Here's a cute pic of my boy Ben putting the star on our tree.

Bird is the Word - TIME

This is my entry for the current challenge at Bird is the Word. I took these photos of Sophie admiring her new watch. I love the colour contrast with the red, white and aqua. Sophie started Year 5 this year and she told me that all the other kids wore watches and she wanted one too. Sophie wears it most days.
Thanks for the fun challenge.

My Owl Barn

I'm not afraid to admit it, I love owls.
I think it all started about 3 or 4 years ago when Sassafrass Lass released the cutest range of owl papers - I fell in love immediately and had to have that entire range of papers including the clear stamps.
I think six months to a year after those papers were released that owls started appearing in lots of clothing, stationery, mugs etc you name it owls are now a big thing and can be found in lots of places. I seemed to have accumulated quite a few owls myself. Refer to this post

One of my go to blogs is My Owl Barn
Yep, it's blog about owls for owl lovers. I love it and am always amazed at how many owls items are out there.
If you like owls you should check it out. There's even a give away this week.
Here's a cute card thats was featured recently on

There's 23 days left

We managed to put our tree up on the first of December but other than lights and tinsel I haven't got around to getting the ornaments up.
So without a dressed tree to show off I thought I would show off my little angel - Cooper my 11 year old mini Schnauzer. I created this cute layout in '09 and Cooper is still as adorable. Love that little dog.
I have so many Christmas papers and embelishements but rarely do a Christmas layout. I might just have to change that this year. My folks are coming to visit over Christmas from QLD so we should get a few photos to use in layouts.
