Merry Christmas Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season. It has been a quiet Christmas in the Stedman house this year. Most of our extended family was away this year and normally we would have heaed to Perth to be with my sisiters, but with the extended retail hours we were unable to go to Perth. My own thought is that the shops should not be open Boxing Day, but judging by the crowds that go each year I guess I am in the minority. So if you are shopping on the holiday days, spare a thought for the workers who are not able to be with their family. And that's my whinge for the day!!
Now to the more important things. As I said it was a quiet day for us, a trip to church in the morning and an afternoon visit to Matt's Aunt and Nana and all meals at home with just us. The kids were very excited with their Nintendo DS, one each. Matt got one too so the four of them were happy playing games together!!
And what did I get? An Ipod and earrings. Thank you to my my hubby and kids. I also got a special gift from my Secret Santa from the ESAD group. I think my Santa is Kim Conway, a talented crafter and very generous gifter! There was notebook decorated with kaleidoscope DSP from the Summer mini and my name in chipboard and glitter (Isobel wont be stealing this one!), a cutter kit, heat & stick powder, dazzling diamonds and a gift box made from the I Wish simply scrappin' kit. Below is a photo of all the goodies inside.
I am a working Mum of three gorgeous children who drive me nuts but wouldnt be without! I have a wonderful husband who stays home to take care of us all. I have always crafted starting as a child knitting and crocheting and moving to paper crafts as I got older. I have been an SU! demonstrator since Oct 2008.
