Sandra at Gotta Craft has the most gorgeous stamps in for Christmas and I just couldn't resist Beanie Anya which is currenly on special offer :)

I also managed to use up all of my Aloe Vera Bazzill from my last Gotta Craft kit. Isn't it just the most gorgeous shade of greeny, turquoisey teal! I must nag Sandra to get more in (she loves me nagging her really!)

Eeeek... Nearly Christmas

I do love Christmas. In fact it is my favourite time of the year but this year it has rolled around far too early. My head is still in October and cannot grasp that its less than 3 weeks until the big day!

I am trying to catch up though and so far on the festive front: I have written most of my cards and located the decorations. I have done almost all of the present shopping and ordered the food. We have also been lucky enough to win a big toy hamper in the raffle at the school fair. The kids haven't seen it yet as it arrived this morning but Christmas is coming even earlier at our house (if I'd known it was going to be so good I would have glossed over the win and wrapped everything up from Santa but its too late - they know all about winning and want to see their prize!)

Things rumble on on the house front. The partition walls are down, the roof is up and most of the electrics are done so its progress. Here is a piccie of my bedroom (well DH's bedroom too not that he's had much input lol):

The door on the left will lead to a little ensuite and the door on the right is a walk in closet. The photo was taken last month - I really must get some new photos of it this week as when the madness is over I want to scrap it all so that I can look back on it and vow never to do anything so mad again. Next time we move I want a totally totally finished house that doesn't need so much as a light bulb changed!
