Well I was up and raring to go today!!! Decided to go and do the wander around the shops thing.... I wonder why?? I wanted to see if I could find anything for people for Christmas. Everything I saw was overpriced and just fluff! Do you know what I mean? Lots of bibs and bobs for the house and gadgets that are meant to make life easier but in the end just take up space in the drawer!!

Ended up at the Local Scrapbooking Shop..... here is their blog and have decided to make homemade Christmas cards again this year. I am thinking of making quite a bit of homemade stuff this year.... gotta stay out of the shops and away from all that commercialism!!

Anyway bought some groovy Kaisercraft paper from their Chrissy range and some matching bazzill to make a start on those cards - some of my friends will be laughing their heads off that I am starting now! One year my dear friend Vicki and I didn't get the cards done until Jan so we made lots of Happy New Year cards instead - but I actually posted mine!!!!

Looking through the photos from Geelong I wanted to share this one too. This is my musician man, Daniel checking out the musical score for the band!

He is playing his piano at the moment - it is hard to believe that he only started a litle over a year ago! He is playing full on pieces of music and I am so proud of him for perservering even when it is difficult.

Anyway better get going and start on those cards!

I love the photos of the bollards in both this post and the previous. Good luck with the Christmas cards. I bought Christine's Christmas Card kit from TSH so I too hope to get them finished and posted before Christmas.
