Christmas/New Year Bargain

Hey there, did you manage to snap up any awesome bargains in the Boxing Day and/or New Year sales. I love the sales  and I did manage to buy myself a couple of lovely dresses reduce from $100 down to $40.

My favourite bargain was this cardmaking kit from Kmart. I got it for $7 in the new year sales. I'm not too sure if it was even discounted but at that price I thought I'ld grab one. It comes with 3 super cute washi tapes (3 metres per roll), some twine, diamontes, lots of cards (rectangle and square in white and kraft and red envelopes), some xmas themed felt shapes and some chipboard xmas themed shapes and some flimsy die cut frames. Considering the washi tapes alone would usually cost at least $3 each  thought it was quite the bargain.

Happy New Year

Whooohooo...happy new year.
Hope you've had a terrific Christmas and new year.
Our family certainly have.

My kids went to town with decorating their gingerbread houses for Christmas. This is a tradition we started about 4 years ago. The first gingerbread house we made the kids decorated together but by the second year they wanted their own house to add their own finishing touches too.
Here's Ben with his "work of art".
 Demolition followed the day after construction.

Here's Sophie with her creation.

As is typical of most peoples Christmas and new year celebrations we ate to much, went to the beach and watched lots of movies. Since it's been hitting highs of 39 degrees plus here in Perth for the last week or more there hasn't been much else to do.

Hope to start scrapping soon but this heat isn't too inspiring. Best wishes for the new year and thanks for stopping by and reading. Below pics of me and my kids. Thought I should show my face. Cheers
