Today is a little unorthodox. I put my page together while Emily is eating her lunch…

Not awesomely photogenic with sun in her eyes and not all that much eaten either.

Here is the page…

I might try adding something more dimensional later. If so I’ll update you!


It does look good with Christingle opposite I guess.

So today I managed 2 entries in the advent journal/December daily type item. The pocket format really does make it simpler to get a basic page together, but harder, I think, to come up with the layered and full of details pages that I like to make. Turns out that I’m not all that satisfied with the look of basic!
Mum got me these really cool stickers from Cosmo cricket when she was in the States last week. I can see me using the whole pack in this album. They are teeny text with Christmas phrases.

See how cute they are?

So anyway here is today’s effort… the Santa Parade.


The elf outfit is Emily’s babycino. Have you ever seen the barrista’s face if you ask for a SOYA choc babycino?
Here is the journalling, let’s see how good the phone camera is!

I’ve also done Christingle. The facing page will be advent calendars but not got the photos I want yet.

Very happy with my handwritten Ali Edwards Style ‘overlay’ but see what mean about the one dimensional-ness? Not sure how to fix that…

Close up here…

Maybe see you with more tomorrow!

Technically its not a dd at all. We are in the midst of moving house and getting over evil germs and all sorts of stresses so now is not the time for a huge project. But I couldn’t bring myself to give it up entirely. The plan is to do Christmassy events instead of every day.

So far I’ve only done the front though and that in the last few minutes… do you want to see? I’m blogging on my new phone (thanks mum!) so let me know if it comes out wonky!

I’m using the Stampin  Up Christmas album with all the cool pockets. I haven’t done any foundation and unusually for me I’m über apathetic so let’s see how it goes.
Not sure I should be allowed to blog in this sort of mood. I have it on the best of authorities that ‘Yummy Mummy’ blogs, which apparently this is, should be picture perfect and beautiful all the time and only show my beautiful and perfect life. I’ve decided to quit censoring… you get to see real life for a bit instead. Sorry. But Alison and Ally you do at least get something to read!

Hmmm I can’t make the phone do in blog links but if you look on the categories cloud to your right you should be able to click on did from 2012 and 2011 to see what I did then.

I did a demo at HobbyCraft in Crawley earlier in the month and I thought you’d like to see a few pictures from it.



I made this heart garland with the lovely paper stack that they gave me to demo with.


This is a note peg using the Stampin’ Up owl stamp from the Christmassy party set.


And a cute 3d bird cage. Also Stampin Up. We like! I stamped the pattern on the bars and also the bird. There’s a matching punch for the birdie too.


This 3d box is something that’s been in my head for a while and I wanted to have time to make. The papers are Stampin Up and the hearts likewise although it’s a retired set called I {heart} hearts.



I had a fun time and hope to demo again there soon.
