In my Christmas gift making spree I made this gorgeous packaging using templates generously provided by one of the very talented SU! Demonstrators of the Year - Claire Daly. You can get the templates here. They were great fun to make and can be tailored to suit any theme - I can see myself making a few of these. Thanks again Claire.

Wow how time flies - I can't believe its been so long between posts!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & and wish you all the best for the New Year.
So much has happened since my last post I don't know where to start...there has been highs and lows, a few adventures and a lot of creating. Sadly I lost my best bud for the last 14 years "Bear". We all miss him heaps but he was very old for a Staffordshire and unfortunately they cant live forever.
On the creative front ...I made quite a few Chrissie pressies this year, I decorated this ribbon box for my Mum...
Breanna had 5 Preschool teachers last year so I made each of them a covered notebook:
We packaged the notebooks and a small bag of chocs shown below (cased from the mega talented Karen Thomas) into these gift bags. They were all a hit with the teachers.
Oh yeah and on the 1 December we got a great new Summer Mini Caty - its awesome - check out the online copy on the right or email me if you would like one posted to you. Just a couple of the highlights are the Butterfly punch and the Circle Scissors - both featured on the notebooks above.
I had planned for this to be a much longer post but blogger is driving me insane (wont let me move the photos around) so I'll be back with another post shortly.
