Today, I’m Loving, decorating for Christmas

We have so much to be grateful for in our lives, no matter how big or small … we need to celebrate the small stuff as well as the big stuff and this is the stuff I’m loving right now:

Tea Pea

I’m loving this gorgeous wee shop filled with all sorts of awesome little goodies to delight your heart.  A trip in here is truly dangerous for my credit card! Check these cute little bunny tea lights and Christmas decorations:

A huge thanks to the fabulouso Dione from Sew Funky for once again organising the Kiwi Christmas Ornament Swap.  I absolutely loved making and blessing the six other women in my group with a cute this cute little flock of birds.

And so, so loving opening my letterbox to find real mail, loving finding all these treats in my letterbox:

Go on bless someone with some real mail…so nice to receive an envelope that is not a bill or a request for money in one form or another.

Link up and Celebrate Christmas

Celebrating Christmas is important to me! I just love the season…the reason we celebrate and being able to have a lot of fun with decorating my house and blessing others.

So this year, I decided to create a linky party for us all to share in the way we celebrate and what Christmas means to us. Go on share what you love about Christmas, what you’ve been doing to prepare, how you celebrate, what makes Christmas Special.

To link up grab this button and make sure you link back to this party.

Kiwi Christmas Ornament Swap

A huge thanks to Dione over are Sew Funky, you are amazing organising us all to participate in the Kiwi Christmas Ornament Swap.  Loved getting my email today and seeing the various names and locations on the list.

My creative juices are flowing…I’ll let them keep flowing for now while I deal to the toy cupboard, culling all those toys that are no longer used or that get on my nerves (read McD’s toys).

I am far from a professional sewer, trying to decide whether to reproduce some things I have done over the past few years for my kids teachers or something totally new.  I have seen some great ideas on Pinterest. To keep the surprise real for those who I am making for, I will only reveal what I have made one week after I have put them in the post.
