Another week over, a new one set to begin. What better way to look at the week that was than through the eyes of Instagram?
A stripey selfie on Sunday, clouds floating by, Jam Drops thanks to awesome recipe over at Saturday Morning Orge Mum and the lights waiting patiently to be wrapped around my humble home
Getting ready for Christmas. After ten years of a rather lovely fibre optic tree we went for a change this year with purple. I love it to say the least.
More Christmas treasures waiting to go up. I needed to pull them out a week early so that it wouldn't all be rushed on the first.
Getting my craft on with material flowers and bows. There will eventually be a post on these little babies I just need to fine tune a few things. Dishes, dishes and more dishes, it truly is a never ending battle. Miss Six lost a tooth, the fairy forgot to come, a letter was written. Whoops. More crafty flowers, this time as a headband.
More clouds, though not nearly as exciting as recent weeks, possibly due to my photo taking abilities or lack there of. Oh well. Me all ready to party at the #fybfxmas party. Just between you and me the whole cracking good Christmas comment that I posted with it really cracked me up! More flowers, bows and gorgeous jam drops. Man have I got those things sorted now.
Buttons, buttons, buttons! Saturday saw me getting crafty yet again. This time it was making button bracelets. Again a post will be written so stay tuned.
The button bracelets were presents for twins that had invited Miss Six to their party. The bracelets were not only a hit but also held the wrapping paper on the bubble bath saving me from using sticky tape. I felt so environmentally friendly. Me after a run. Actually after a shower after a run. In the mirror I looked a lot redder. Beautiful lights hanging in my garage. And last but not least, me trying to be all arty with my photos. I was going to save it for next week but I needed it to even out the photos for this post.
Don't forget to

We haven't even thought about the tree this year! Apart from the fact we are heading north for Xmas with a 1 year old and 2 year old, no matter how much security we put around the tree something is bound to happen to it! Last year my daughter was 18 months and managed to smash a number of ornaments and unwrapped many presents even with tree being housed in a play pen! :)ReplyDelete
It is hard with little ones and it is so much effort to go to when you are traveling away anyway.Delete
Those buttons are amazing! And I love all the Christmas-grams I'm seeing! The biscuits look yummy too!ReplyDelete
Thanks, they were such yummy biscuits and so easy as well, much like the braceletsDelete
Looks like a fab week! And I spot a penguin in your Christmas decorations! Thanks for linking up xReplyDelete

Awesome photos love the buttons too!Love the purple tree :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks, I am so in love with the tree, even just thinking about it makes me smileDelete
A purple tree? Very cool! And I loved your "just been for a run" pic - made me feel all inspired. As I lay there reading the caption. I didn't go run, but I wanted to ;-)ReplyDelete
Yep super cool on the tree front, I grin from ear to ear every time I see it. Of a morning it catches the sun and just makes the whole are sparkleDelete
oh Yum Jam Drops, i haven't had these in years. My dad use to cook them all the time.ReplyDelete
Looks like a very Art and craft Christmassy week was had.
