It's on!

Eeek, Christmas is a coming and the hectic crafty mayhem begins!
What is that weird looking thing in the photo??

Well my dears, that weird thing is the very start of my Christmas Ornament that I'm making for the swap organised by Christina.
It's slow progress with the ornament, I did actually finish it... but then bubba stood on it & squished it so I had to start again!

I've been making more of these washers too, I figure that people might liked them as a gift and if they don't - they're getting them anyway!!

I'm also contemplating baking our Xmas cake, I purchased all the dried fruits etc that I will need for it and just that alone cost me over $19!

But before I get myself completely lost in Christmas crafting & cooking etc..... it'll be bubba's 2nd birthday on the 15th December so tell me, any ideas on what kind of cake I should make & decorate??

Cheers, big ears!


  1. I know!!!
    It is going to be here before we know and I'm not anywhere near being organised, or motivated,... AHHHHH!!!

  2. ... oh and as for the cake... for my babe's 2nd birthday I do their favourite nursery rhymer. So for my big boy that was Baa Baa Black Sheep and for my girl Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
    What's Jo's fav nursery rhyme???

  3. Oooh, I'm intrigued! Sorry to hear about the demise of your first ornament though! For Cohen we have had a circus party and a dinosaur party. This year we are having a Lego party, as he is obsessed with Lego! :)

  4. So sorry ornament number one was squished, hopefully this one will be spared! Can't wait to see it finished!
