Who is getting excited? I am. Can you tell? We have Christmas day planned, presents organised (mostly) and I am looking forward to relaxing with my family.
This is going to be a photo rich post, so please just scroll past the jabbering straight to the photos if it takes your fancy.
Before I share anything else, I just had to share this:
Check out the cheeks on our little Charlee. She looks like a chipmunk storing up nuts for the winter.
Today I dragged the girls over the road to the oval for a quick photo shoot. I wanted to get a group photo to send out with my Christmas cards. I dragged the bean bag over as well, so little miss Chubby Cheeks would have somewhere comfy to sit. These are my two faves.
Okay onto some Christmassy stuff.
You can find a tute for this bag here.
Notebook for a teachers present.
Crayon rolls. I have shared this link to a tute before.
Drawstring bags. These are great and can have so many uses. Library bag, swimming bag, shoe bag, toy bag, overnight bag...and the list goes on. Here is the link for this one.
Notebooks. Altered slightly to suit my needs.
Pencil case. Also from here! I adapted the tute to suit and added some wadding for padding.
And this tote.
All of these projects were quick and simple to create and the tutes were easy to follow. As you can see I have spent some time sourcing the net for ideas and how to's. It has made my christmas making that much easier.
And lastly, here is a photo of some christmas ornaments I've made. Super easy and oh so pretty hanging in our tree.
