Christmas Table Gifts & Cards

Every year we buy a little something for on the Christmas Table. I normally end up coming home with some kind of body cleanser/moisturiser thingy or an address book or something else I just never end up using. So this year this is what we are all going to get...

Little pouches/wallets for Mum, Me & Aunty Clare. These are big/small enough to hold all those excess of cards we seem to accumulate, every shop I walk into seems to have a loyalty card of some kind. They are made from some of my fave Amy Butler fabric and some linen. Isabella will be getting a little purse too, but hers will have cupcakes on it. The guys always gets a Chocolate Orange and yap on about it all year so they'll be getting them.

I've started wrapping Christmas Presents in fear of little people finding things. Well and big people cause Dean is a big SNOOP. Yes I know you read this blog Dean, don't deny it, any bags laying around for more than 60 seconds around here are inspected especially this close to Christmas. The man can SNIFF Christmas presents have entered the house.

My new gift cards, like them? I made them at Mum's on Tuesday. I ended up having to make her a couple of dozen as well. She thought they needed colouring in but I like having just the one little colour accent on them. Plus I have too many to draw to bother colouring them in.

Off to try finishing the top of Isabella's quilt thats for Christmas. If anyone has seen a stack of all sewen up squares wandering around looking lost can you send them home cause I can't find them for the life of me. This is why I normally finish a project in one sitting cause otherwise things just go AWOL when it's weeks between sewing them.

The pouches are a great idea. I'm so sick of my wallet being stuffed full of things like that....but if they were in a separate pouch in my handbag then that would be perfect!

Really loving the gift tags, when I first saw them I thought they were stamped but you drew them! Very impressed! And no, you're right they are perfect as they are, no clolouring required, just simple and adorable!

I love those little pouches, and the beautifully wrapped gifts. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at your place.
