We have decorated ( I bought a pre- baked kit) the gingerbread house.
The Christmas cake is cooked. I always leave it until the last minute or it will get eaten before Christmas day arrives.
We tried something new, I found it on the web of course. It is called Christmas bark! White chocolate melts and crushed candy canes - very nice!
Some last minute gifts are ready to be wrapped. Potholders For Grandma and Mr Ric-Rac 'cause he was being a smart bottom about them!
and an ornament each for the kids - How cute is that surprised little gingerbread man. I downloaded the pattern for him from Elsie Marley. A great blog that I have only recently found.
Grandpa was proving very very difficult in the present stakes until I chanced upon this post on the wonderful Pea Soup blog. (super blog, add it to your favourites). Buying this wonderful book mark got me back on track and today I gocco'd a journal to go with it. (M for Mike)
I really love the acorn bookmark - you guys know that I am impressed by all forms of knitting and crotchet because I can do neither, but this is so cute.
I am expecting Favourite-in-law status after he opens this little gifty. I am sure he is going to love it, even though it may take me till lunchtime to explain how I bought it from a lovely woman that I have never met who has a blog...well a blog is kind like a diary Grandpa but its on the Internet........
The grey board books came from Office works and are quite reasonable. I tried this once before and fluffed it, but now that I have figured some out-of-machine goccoing I went a bit crazy......
I even Gocco'd a T-shirt, it was just with the regular ink that was already in Gocco from the journal but it worked !!! The print came out clean and clear. Now I want to ignore the housework and the cooking and just play with Gocco.
I hope you all, whoever you are , in whatever little crafty corner of the world you are in , have a lovely and safe time over the Christmas season.
Thankyou all for visiting this year and welcoming me to the land of blogs.
I wonder what I did with myself before I stumbled through the sewing room into this world?
