Last Post of 2011

I had planned to do a round up post of 2011, but life has once again got in the way. As I was going through my photos, I realised how much stuff (crafty & baking) that I havent posted!

Plus, the Husband is ill, the kids are whiny & the house looks like a tornado blew through it!

So instead I will do a number of round up posts next week, hopefully I'll manage it sooner but dont want to promise as it is chaos here right now.

Therefore, I will take this moment to wish you a very Happy New Year. Thank you for your support this year, & I'm looking forward to sharing 2012 with you.

Christmassifying our home

Ok, I think I totally made up the word Christmassifying, but it fits the title so Im going with it, LOL. I've been trying to get some decent photos of my tree, but my poor camera just isnt going to create the type of shot I desire. & lets be honest, when my kids are older & they look back at these photos, Im pretty sure they arent going to be saying 'Mum, these photos are awful', etc.

So, here is our tree:

Its slighly massive!!

We don't have a mantle/fireplace unfortunately (one day..........) so the top of the sideboard will do. Most of the Santas belonged to my Mother In Law,who is sadly no longer with us.

& our wooden advent calendar which is becoming one of our mostloved family traditions.

**5 sleeps to go!!**

'Tis The Season'

For Advent Calendars

For the return of the Red Cups

& lots of candlelight.

It's Christmas time!!

I've spent the morning photographing the trees (we have 3!), & christmas decorations, but unfortunately the room they are in is really dark & dreary. So the photos are awful.

** Dear Santa/Father Christmas, I would really like a digital SLR camera for xmas. i have been a very good girl this year, Love Lisa. **

My current camera is a Fuji bridge camera thats about 5-6 years old. Its doesnt focus very clearly anymore, is so slow to take pictures, & doesnt like poor lighting conditions. Therefore, no decent pictures to show today.

Which is so annoying as for once, I have lots to show!!

Aargghh!! *Bangs head against wall*

Guess I'll just have to try again tommorrow.
