Merry Christmas All

Wishing you all the most joyful Christmas 2010... I hope it will be all you wish for & may you have your own little Christmas miracle of some sorts.
I'm spending a week in Albury NSW with my Husband's family, the weather is beautiful, not too hot & we are looking forward to Christmas Day.

Pretty puddings

We had a Christmas Shopping Night as a fundraiser for my son's primary school, so I thought I would make a few drawstring fabric pouches that I had seen in a Japanese craft book from Lark. I had an idea that they would be great as reusable Christmas wrapping...they fit a 750gr Christmas pudding perfectly or as seen in the photo below they look great with biscuits in them...a nice Chrissy gift.

A friend took them down to Sydney to show celebrity gourmet baker Simmone Logue, she loved them & ordered 20 for her Double Bay & Cammeray stores...yippee! Yep so I have become quite quick at whipping these little guys up. I have also put some in my Etsy shop for you guys to buy if interested.

Christmas biscuits as a gift in pretty christmas pouch.

pretty florals..great to reuse after Christmas for makeup or jewellery.
How are you all surviving the lead up to Christmas? We are getting quite excited here, tree is up & decorated by the kids..we also have many solar powered Christmas lights this year.
