Can you believe it!

Wow! It's gone until next December. I can't believe that Christmas Day has been and gone already. This December has been such a whirlwind for me so it is with gratitude that I can look back at my December Daily Album and recall all the memories that I would otherwise have forgotten. I have really enjoyed this project and will do it again next year. Here are a few of my favourite pages.

Oh Christmas Tree!

I'm feeling slightly more festive now so here's a few photos of my tree. The Santa riding a cactus is a decoration I bought whilst travelling in Arizona.

Cold Play

Last week my friend, Kathyrn, and I went to see Coldplay at the Liverpool Echo Arena. Well, all I can say about it is WOW! We loved it. The band were so cool and at one point they actually went to the back of the Arena and played from there.

Anyway, here are a few photos.

A Beautiful but Cold Winter's Day

When I woke up yesterday I thought we'd had a sprinkling of snow, but it was just a hard frost. I really didn't want to go outside but I just had to grab my camera to snap those gorgeous iced plants before all the frost melted.

These are a few of my best shots.

As I hadn't been feeling very well on Saturday, I didn't leave the house so yesterday I just had to get out. As it was lovely and sunny we decided to go for a walk on the beach - well what else would you do on a Winter's day. I didn't dip my big toe in the sea, but I did dip my finger and yes it was FREEZING! Here are a few photos I took, which will find their way into my December Daily Album.

Are you giving money as a gift this Christmas?
Then have a look at these cute little money pouches which are so easy to make. They have been made by one of my customers, Rose, to give to her Grandchildren and I'm sure they are going to love them!

The Key to Christmas

I often go mad at Christmas decorating the house. Last Christmas we had 4 trees! One in the hall, one in the Lounge, one in the Dining Room and a kids one where they hung all their home made decorations. This year will be no exception!

I often hang things from the door handles, upstairs and downstairs so the Christmas cheer is spread through the house.

I love the really big chipboard keys from Delish Designs and when I was shopping the other day I ventured in a shop who sold old music sheets. I thought they would be perfect for creating a festive door hanger and this is the result. I put together a kit to sell them through the web-site and they flew out!
