Love these shoes!


I love these shoes.
Ella has almost out grown them.
It's hurting inside a little.
Most things I can part with.
But not these.
Maybe one day I will.
So when it happens,
 I will almost have this every cute photo!

Santas Magic Key

Zac is almost 4.
He has been asking how Santa will get inside the house.
We don't have a chimney.
So how will he??




I saw the idea at a party shop.
I goggled poems & found this,
I added the last paragraph.





Dear Santa,
We don’t have a chimney and
I was worried as could be
About how you’d bring the
Presents to my family and  me.
But now I’ve solved the problem
And I’m not sad anymore,
For hanging from this ribbon
Is the key to our front door.
Use this Magic Key,
But only for one night.
It will open up my door.
Then just follow the bright light.
My tree will be shinning,
You will be sure to see.
Love Zac & Ella


(part source)

Materials;
poem
A Santa Gift Tag
ribbon
Scissors
Glue
A key
Cardboard
Lamanator - optional
Hole Punch




Cut it all out & paste together.
Use the Lamantor if you like.



Punch a hole in the corner.
Thread the ribbon through the key, then the poem & tie off.


DONE




Now we know how Santa is getting into our house!

Christmas Angel Wings

My aunty gave me this idea, well it was for her house, 
so I stole it & run with it.

With my little munchinks around, I totally can't leave presents under the tree.
There's no concept that we give present to other people as well & it's not all about them! We are working on it..


So I made the angel wings 
and I have started to place the presents on the dinning table.
Surprising they haven't touched them....yet!




Each little bird "Love", "Joy"  & "Peace"
The candles underneath mirror that as well.

This is how I made the wings:

Freehand draw a wing, cut out, flipped over & traced the 2nd wing.


Covered both wings with plain white computer paper ( don't need to be neat)
Just don't want the brown cardboard showing through.


Then start to hot glue the feathers on.
I started going around the outside, then worked my way into the middle.
My feathers were already trimmed at the peak, & looked yucky, so I cleaned them up.


I turned the wings over. Tapped them together.

 Hot glued the ribbon for hanging.

Used a temporarily hook

And hang up.


DONE

I love it!
It's pretty, different & can can use it next year!

Rainbow Invitations - Rainbow Party

It's really hard to find cute Rainbow Invites that you don't have to pay for.
I was sort of over the photo print outs, so I made these;


Cut each colour of the rainbow out of cardboard paper


Wasn't quite sure which way to stick the ribbon on.

 Decided on across, a no brainer really!! Rainbow's go across! 
 I used doubled sided tape to stick the ribbon down


 Once stuck down, then use really Sharpe scissors and trim the excess off.

 Double side sticky tape the back of invite down onto cardboard.

 Then make another 30!!


Be sure to check out the rest of the Rainbow Party!

So easy to make, here's how;

You need:
M&M's
Tiny Teddy's
Mini Milky Way's
Icing
Food colour - optional


1. Make a small cut in the milky way, but make sure you hold the two ends of the bar, otherwise it will split in half.

2. Carefully push the teddy in place.

3. Mix up some icing

4. Lay on side

5. Place icing on m&m

6. Let dry completely, until you turn & do other side, or they slip off.
