WOYWW #134

Do you feel like this after Christmas? I do!!!

Wednesday here again, the last week has felt like 4 weeks fallen into 1. So much has happened that I need a break now. All the Christmas tv programmes to watch, spent 12 hours at a friends place on Christmas day having a great Christmas after spending 2 days with my gorgeous girls and husband. I forgot to take photos of the food, there was sooo much.
Emma looking at her Xmas present, craft related of course
 Michael chilling in the sun, not sure where summer went this year, but it's nice and pleasant
 Keira having her marinated prawns for brunch
Now starting on my mothers photo box which was to be her 60th birthday present but she is now 70 hahaha, it's pretty damn hard to get photos off the family so thank goodness for facebook and the younger generation, its only taken me 10 years to collect photos
One of the photo boxes I made for the girls
 Emma flicking through hers. The sentiments read  I LOVE YOU and SENT WITH LOVE because I don't own MADE WITH LOVE hee hee

Hop on over to Julia Dunnit's blog to see all the other desks this week
I never shared with you all that when I craft I listen to a CD, a reading book CD, I've been going through the audio third time round LOL, it makes my craft very enjoyable and I plough through a book in 2 days
One of my favourite Santa photos

  6. Thanks for all the lovely pictures you shared with us - lovely to see the girls as they are growing up.
    I tend to automatically switch off my hearing when I am crafting but after reading about your cd listening I am going to give it a try. That way I can have two pleasures at once.
    May I take this opportunity of wishing you and yours a Good 2012. Hugs, Neet #4 xx
    btw - love Emma's nails!

  12. So strange to think that you have the summer when it's Christmas! Here in southern Finland, however, looks more like summer than winter... no snow yet!
    The photobox is lovely! I have laughed at yous ten-year-project - you will get more and more pics all the time... :D

  22. Loved that Santa pic, might wake up all the kids though if he turned up with that get up! Great family photos, I really can't imagine Christmas in a warm climate, don't think I'd want Turkey and all the trimmings! Hope you get moving on your 10 year project soon!

  28. Oooh what a fabulous post - looks like you all had a great time and the presents look smashing. I too made my Dad an album for his 60th it consisted of five layout and I said I would add to it - he is now 71 and there are still only five in there! Love the way you are sorting out all those photos all spread out! Thanks for all your lovely comments over the year and I hope you have a lovely New Year.

  33. Never thought of listening to books while I craft, I usually have music on (the whole of our music collection is on my crafting computer so I have plenty of choice). However, I might try books to see if that is any better. Those prawns looked lovely, makes my mouth water just looking at them. Have a wonderful New Year. Maggie #49

  34. Oh Fab! Love the Santa photo! The photo book looks lovely too. I'm sure when your Mum eventually gets hers, the length of time it's taken won't matter one jot!

    Thanks for stopping by!
