Frost. . . .

Well the wrapping paper is all bagged up and the presents are spread around the house.
The cupboards are still full of 'Christmas food' that no one can face eating. There is still enough alcohol for a party (which we are not having).

This morning I ventured out before the rest of the house was even awake.
There was a beautiful frost on the grass and a glorious blue sky.

The garden looks beautiful covered in frost, but a little neglected. This year I even forgot to bring in my summer bunting. 

If I don't pop back in before New Years Eve, I will wish you all a Happy New Year in advance.
Hoping 2015 brings you joy, health and happiness.

Happy Christmas

What can I say, where has the time gone!! I had planned lots of posts during December but. . . . . .I didn't do them.

I've been busy, going places, sewing, crafting, baking, etc and I've taken photos ready to blog but never quite got around to it.

So from me and  'The Elves' I would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas.

Dominic. . . . . .

How many projects can you juggle at once?

I really need to stop adding things to my list. The latest addition was a reindeer head.

I found this on Pinterest so didn't even look at the printable template ......

I sketched out the shape then got out the very sharp knife!!!

Luckily my other half had brought home some old boxes from work.

Had I printed out the template my reindeer head would have been a manageable size, lets just say 'its bigger than I thought!!!'

Some of my family (I won't mention my sisters name) are very derogatory about my crafting, its all in good humour and taken very well. But she did joke that I was making a donkey head, now we are all referring to it as a donkey head. It also has an accompanying song thanks to my daughter.
