2Crafty Sneak Peaks & Christmas Photos!

Hello there!  This month all my shares are from the 25th onwards
but I am busy creating a lot & also in the process of tidying up &
 sorting out my studio.  You know when you start to regret ever
having begun?!?  Yeah well that's whereI'm at right now!
I've had to bring in the patio table just to sort on!!

Anyway, as I'm short of time {what's new?!?} 
I'm sharing some sneaks & some photos before I head to bed!
Oh and I have been working behind the scenes BIG TIME at
Scrap Around The World - go check out one of the new 
improvements HERE & see if you can spot it!  

I have my first 2 Crafty Chipboard post
 going live on Saturday 25th Jan.

And here are a few of my favourite Christmas photos!

These will be making an appearance
 on my scrapbooking layouts very soon :)

It was all about girly stuff for my younger daughter
 this year as she has just become a teenager.

She is going to miss her big brother when he
 goes off to university away from home soon.

Despite the 7 year age gap these 2 girls have
an absolutely FANTASTIC relationship!

She got the "Into the Light" Palette by Stila -
beautiful, natural looking metallic shades.

And this photo is STILL making me laugh every time I look at it!!

My daughter loves Penguins & has quite a collection of them,
 from tiny to huge {not the real kind of course!}

Yes this is a Squirrel, not a Penguin.  My eldest daughter's
 first nickname, when she was a baby, was "Squirrel Nutkin"
{coined by my husband} &sometimes we still call her 
Squirrel, so I bought this little squirrel for her to take
 back to university with her :)  She loved it!! 

We had a great Christmas & we are still having a great time.
It is the middle of Summer here & we are braaing {barbequeing},
swimming, eating salads & drinking smoothies & crushers - Yum!

LOL..I feel your pain! I just dug out from under the "re-organization" of my crafty domain recently too. May everything fall into place as it should and your craftiness be the better for it. Your pictures are FABULOUS and the sneak peeks are tempting!
Have a great weekend.
Lisa :)

EXCELLENT PHOTOS! Thanks so much for sharing them with us! I had a giggle over Grumpy Cat. We all have grumpy cat faces we make here! And we use the word squirrel too, but usually referring to someone's very short attention span. (might even be referring to me!)
