December Daily, 2014 | Day Three.

Morning Sunday!

Day three of our December Daily album for 2014. Christmas cards. 

The giving – we love it around here, and it was especially special this year with all four kids creating and writing theirs. Even Henry aged 5. He insisted on writing his own. The receiving – it’s beautiful. It’s joyous. It’s appreciated. But oh my, 4 lots of classes of 25 plus and then some. It makes for a lot of cards in our house. We display them in the wire tree thing you can see below, rotating them out as they come in. Candy canes popped into the envelope seem to be popular. They don’t last long with the kids just devouring those on the drive Read More

A Divine Stag.

Hello Wednesday!

Today I received the new Christmas stamp set called ‘Cheer’ from my darling, creative, stamp designing friend Kellie of Kellie Stamps.

I adore that divine stag head. I’ll definitely be using the other stamps in the set (perfect for December Daily) but for today I went crazy creating tags and cards with the stag head image. The ‘Cheer’ stamp set has motivated me to send out handmade Christmas cards this year. They are going to be Read More

Our Christmas Card Books.

Hello Wednesday!

Last December as I packed up our rental ready for the move into our little cottage I was faced with the same question I have had most years.

…”What do I do with the Christmas cards?”…

The kids are entering those ages where the Christmas cards they receive mean so much. Last year William (10), Stella (8) and Scarlett (7) would even count out how many Christmas cards they had received in playful competition with each other!

Here is an idea that I have done before. It’s not my idea. And it’s not a new idea. But it is quick, simple and works.

As I was taking down the cards I got my super organised daughter Stella to separate the Christmas cards into three piles. Hers, William’s and Scarlett’s.


Then I got her to sit there and hole punch every card. She loved it. Seriously. She really did!


Then I tide a festive little ribbon (polka dots of course…) through the holes and BAM. Together we had just created a Christmas Card Book for each of them.


I unpacked these three little books of childhood friendship yesterday which is what prompted me to post this example of what you might be able to do with all your kids Christmas cards.


A grateful shout out to Leanne Oxley who sent me an amazing RAK last December full of homemade Christmas creativity. The cover I used for the Christmas Card Book is just one piece of Leanne’s beautiful work. I used a lot other pieces in my 2013 December Daily. Thank you yet again Leanne. xxx

Leanne has a blog called Paper Snippets where she shares her creativity and life. Check out her posts on memory keeping whilst traveling! She makes it look achievable and so much fun.

Have a wonderful day everyone! x

December Daily, 2013 | Day Twenty- three.

Hello Thursday!

Oh people. It’s all coming together. The house. The office. The shop. Slowly but surely. For those who have placed orders I promise you that you are my main priority. Getting those boxes of product unpacked into my new space. Thank you for your patience. x

I am proud to say that I have had these December Daily pages completed since the 28th. Blogging them has been a different story because of the move but I am back on-line blogging and creating now. Yay!


Here are both my day twenty-two and twenty-three. That ‘summer drinks’ wood veneer is from Kellie Stamps. She has now begun designing wood veneer and flair all of which compliment her stamp designs.


Simple and bright. This little guy means the world to me.


Both of the patterned papers that I have used were from the Magical, Studio Calico 6×6 paper pad that was included in our Documenting December kit. I still have some in stock and they are currently ON SALE, 33% off! $5.50 each! Great if you need to finish off any Christmas projects. The ’23’ are made up of the rubber thickers from Amy Tangerine’s collection Cut & Paste.

I hope you are all well and happy after your Christmas and New Year break. I hope you are all as excited about 2014 as I am.

Tonight I am taking the night ‘off’ to start on my 2014 Project Life. As you all know I haven’t finished 2103. Not even close. But I will. One day. I’m all about living in the present and celebrating the now. So 2014 here we go.

See you tomorrow! xxx
