I guess the run up to Christmas took its toll and the days flew by.. I was totally engrossed in my craft room re-organisation during November so that was several weeks gone and then Christmas.. which bought its own challenges.. we had terrible flooding, no power for 36 hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and no access to several routes to get away from the flooding due to roads being cut off... luckily there was one way in and out, so we could have had it worse! Fortunately our own house is on the top of a hill so no chance of us being flooded but our low lying neighbours were not so fortunate and suffered a lot of damage. I count my blessings for living on a hill!
Below are a few shots of my Christmas decorations, a lot of which were hand made this year. I decided to go with a Nordic theme in red and white so I die cut lots of hearts and hand decorated them with Nordic style 'drawing' and writing.
I then die cut lots of red and white poinsettias and added them amongst some greenery on my table and side board. I also made gift tags in the same theme and added them to the place settings. I had quite a bit of fun updating my decorations this year.
Here is the sideboard with all the fresh greenery and here is the table and place setting too.
Well what else have I been up to in seven weeks... well I set a challenge on UKS... use a sketch and create a LO with trees. I did this one about a snowy walk a couple of years back
and I also did this one which was a double page 8 x 8 Lo about winter. I love the snow but I do hate the rain and mud that goes usually follows it!
Take care all.
