Shadow Shot Sunday #20

Hi everyone,
this day 2 years ago I was packing my bags and getting ready to head into the hospital to be induced to have Lucas (I can't believe he will be 2 tomorrow!!)

This week's Shadow Shot is of him playing with his new bubble machine on the back deck yesterday as we set up for his party... for more shadow shots visit here

We had around 35 people to celebrate Lucas' birthday early yesterday and Elmo was the guest of honour !! We had yummy snacks and lots of playing and dancing. What a great morning. Now I am still trying to recover, just don't bounce back as well as I used to LOL.

I hope that you all have a safe few days leading up to Christmas, and that the jolly fat-man remembers to drop a pressie under the tree for you.

All the Best
xx Em

More Christmas Decorations received... and Back-Tack 4 sent to Celia

Hi everyone,

Well we had an AWESOME market on Saturday, I really am still in slight disbelief at how well our wares were taken, and the fact that we have now pretty much NO stock left!! (eek). So if you came along to the market, thanks so much. And to all the other Brisstylettes, Thanks for organising and being such a great bunch!
Thanks for the well wishes from afar too :-)

So last week, I had no internet due to being literally in the clouds, so I havent had a chance to share this with you:

She came for the cake and pie ornament swap, from our friend Kate..

These ones arrived today in the mail from Donna and Emily - Thanks Ladies !! my tree is really starting to fill up and look great.

I also sent my Back-Tack4 swap off last week to my new friend Celia, here is what I sent:

A knitting needle case, with 2 pairs of needles, one for Celia's son Alex when he begins to knit (he is nearly 2) and 4 handmade stitch markers with gorgeous charms I bought from the US.

I also made Alex a construction apron, and a set of wooden cooking utensils & sent a book about trucks (he is getting a kitchen for christmas - shhh)

Then I sent a jar of homemade gingerbread men and a reindeer container full of good old cadbury chockies... yum, ooh and some hand-painted serviette rings I made.
Celia was delighted with her parcel and I am so glad

ok well I must go and organise dinner.
have a good week

My kitchen bench is currently covered in baked treats to take along

Hope to see you there,

I have made a great friend in my swap partner Celia who has a little boy Alex who is almost the same age as Lucas.

I received my swap gift from her today. The theme this year was Gold (something that sparkles), Frankincense (smell/taste) & Mhyr (gift)

I was sooo spoilt and squeeling with delight at the load of goodies I received, here are the pics

gorgeous hand knitted tree ornaments with gourmet lolly pops inside

Handmade jam drops, apricot jam, cherry jam & a yummy smelling chocolate candle

A stunning hand woven scarf and flower pin,vintage cotton tin, pincushion,calendar,diary,photo albumn & cutie little construction shorts for Lucas

I will blog what I posted Celia in the coming days once I know she has received them. Thanks again so much Celia xx

Shadow Shot Sunday #19

Hi everyone,

well it is beginning to look a lot like christmas at our place, I bought this new "minimalist" tree this year as we are having a big party for Lucas' birthday in 2 weeks and our other tree is 9feet tall and the diameter of the bottom of it is huge too and takes up a tad too much room...

So my SSS is this pic this weekend. Head here to see more Shadows x.
Hope you all have a great week.
Don't forget if you are in the area check out the BrisStyle Markets at Hamilton next Saturday!!

xx Em

Holiday Ornament Swap - by freshlyblended


Confession time. I have way too little time, and way too many things I have committed to this Christmas, Hmmmm what is new!
I received this little treasure from pupule in the mail today, my first ornament received from the swap I joined through freshly blended. He is SOOOOOoooo cute.

Just have to put up the tree now so he can take centre stage.
