Bickies for Santa

Jack is getting worried about what santa will think when he arrives at our place tonight and finds that SOMEBODY has already been eating the cakes we have left out for him. So funny since Jack is the one that we have caught having a nibble more than once tonight!!
Have a wonderful day tomorrow! Leah

Paper Christmas Garland Tutorial

Hello, I'd love to make some of these for christmas. I have all of the supplies, but I think that might be struggling for time. The Bendigo Handmade Market was fantastic, I couldn't believe how busy it was! I have some pics on my camera, I will share tomorrow.
Not many sleeps left now, Grace keeps opening presents from under our tree, usually they belong to her brothers which creates lots of noise!!
