Some photos from the festivities

Anyways, I thought I'd pop on a couple of photos taken recently in the festive season:

Marianne's new fur baby "Ebony" - a Crimbo pressie from her boyfriend:
The gal herself - with her vibrant pink "make a statement" hairdo and fabby long lashes:

Crimbo Update

Hope you all had a good Christmas all you peeps out there!
I certainly did ;o) We started Christmas morning at 6.50 am our time with a telephone call from my uncle John in Oz which was lovely though quite early LOL!!
Kids loved their pressies - they all got what they wanted with the exception of the Nintendo Wii - cos that was for the whole family :o) Got guitar hero for the Wii [not yet played it] seeing as I had been playing Guitar Hero on the PS2 heh heh heh!!
Kids got me Lacoste "pink" perfume along with new earphones for listening to music on the PC - yay!! Got a fabby new purse from BIL, fabby new handbag from the PIL, got a couple of new CD albums to fire on the PC and then onto my IPOD - Kings of Leon, Pink, and Nickleback. BUT the bestest pressie I got was my Nikon DSLR + 2 lenses [big thanks to hubby!!]. Got my eye on another lens but I'll need to sell my bridge camera and it's additional lens/accs to compensate- but hey I can cope with that LOL!!

Yay the Crimbo tree is up!

Not before time too! Eventually got round to buying a Christmas tree yesterday after disposing of the fibre optic tree in summer. Thought we would never get one at a decent price. Put the tree up last night. At least it looks like Christmas is going to arrive in this house afterall. Up until Monday this week, we really thought Christmas would be cancelled for us thank heavens its not!!

Wow! you should pop over and visit Linanna Designs blog - fabby selection of blog candy!

Snowman Soup for the kids' teachers

A lovely cup + 2 bars of chocolate; 2 x candy canes; bag of freeze dried snowballs [marsh mallows]; snowman poop [tic-tacs]. SU stamps + glitter used.



A slight variation from my colleagues with the mug instead of gift bag. The poem reads:

When the weather outside is frightful
Snowman Soup can be delightful
May it warm your spirit and your soul
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

When you feel a chill or ‘burrrrr’
Use the peppermint stick to stir
Add hot water and sip it slow,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!


Snowman Soup for my work colleagues



The marshmallows are "freeze-dried" snowballs!! And mint tic-tacs are snowman poop!!

I've used Cuttlebug embossing; SU snowflake stamps and stampin' glitter; SU scallop punch.

A sad sad day ....


Heaven bless him...
Our gorgeous dog, Sunny, has gone to doggie heaven today. Suddenly taken ill, Sunny was admitted to the vets as an emergency this morning. Poor soul.
We got him around 2 weeks before Christmas 2005. He had 'served time' in the German Shepherd Rescue Centre. Poor chap had suffered terribly at the hands of another human being. When we got him he wouldn't even go near my hubby, only following me around constantly. Eventually hubby gained Sunny's trust and they became best of friends, and very protective of us as a family. He'll be very sadly missed.
