Winding Down

Gosh I can't believe that Christmas Day has gone!!!

We had a very special one this year. Christmas Eve Katia, Jamie and Jayden came to us for dinner as they has other family commitments for Christmas Day. Oh boy it was Jayden's first Christmas and we had to open her pressies. Being 5 and a half months old she was more interested in the pretty paper and wanted to taste it too. We got her mainly clothes as she's going into her new clothing age group and needs new clothes.

Yesterday my mom cellebrated her 74th Birthday and spent the day with my cousins. She tries to be at a different group of family every year. We also have Jade, Corné's daughter for the first time over Christmas and went to spend the day at his father and step mom. As usul there was just too much good food.

I need to share this photo we had taken of Jayden with Father Christmas.

Today's freebie was made with Kim B's latest kit, A Fresh Start, which is less 45% off until tomorrow evening.

You can get it here.

Remember to come back for the last of the freebie QP's tomorrow.

Blog Train Freebie and a huge THANK YOU

The first one goes to KIM B. Thank you girlfriend for giving me the snots today. Hop on over to her blog and see what it's all about. Yes it made me stop in my tracks and made me realise my blessings too.

The next one goes to her as well. For her generosity. She has her entire store on sale. How great is that.

Thanks to the first digi scrapper (I don't even know who she is), that got me hooked on this marvelous hobby. I one day saw a LO and thought I'd like to know how to do that and as they say, the rest is history.

Thanks to all the people that visit my blog, share their kits, share their knowledge, share their LO's and share a bit of themselves. In the almost 3 years that I've been digi-scrapping, you've enriched my life no end.

Thanks to Kristine for coming up with a great swatch for her store designers so that we could get this blog freebie going for you.

Stop by the rest of the ladies to get the whole bang shoot.


That's 6 mini kits making one huge big kit for you all to snag.

Here's my portion

and you can pick it up here

Enjoy snagging and chat soon

Wish I was a baby

Gosh but it's hot here at the moment. It's just after 08:00 in the evening and I've just been in the pool. It's just too hot and the sun too dangerous during the day to go for a refreshing swim.

We spent the day in my studio as it's the coolest place on the property, but even there it was uncomfortably hot today. Jayden was extremely cranky and eventually I just fetched her bath and filled it with luke warm water and stuck her in the bath. She was such a happy little girl and was splashing and playing with her bath toys. Eventually the whole floor was wet, but as long as it kept her happy we weren't going to complain.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to have my hair done and have decided to not do my usual cut and color, but just a cut as I won't be able to cope with this heat under one of those huge black shrouds. I'll wait for a cooler or rainy day to do my color.

And the count down to Christmas has started in earnest. We took Jayden for her first photo with Santa and then the photographer asked if she could enter her in a baby competition, so she took a whole lot of other photos as well. I can collect the disc with the photos tomorrow and I'm so excited. her first professional photos and I can't wait to scrap them. She is already such a little diva. When she sees a camera, she just smiles.

Rainer left for Ballito and I just got a text to say that they arrived safely and that he is turning his phone off for 3 days. LOL, he hates his cell phone because it never stops ringing.

Today I have a Christmas Commercial Use freebie for you.

You can get it here.

Don't forget to swing by my blog tommorow as the big surprise will be revealed.

HELP!!!!! Can someone stop my merry-go-round, it's going way too fast. LOL, it feels as if my life is running on rocket fuel at the moment. It has been hectic, but I have all my Christmas shopping done and I can relax as of tomorrow.

Today is a very special day in my life. My darling daughter, Katia, turned 20 today. I can't believe that time has flown by so fast. It's like yesterday that she made a very hasty entrance into this world, but she did wait until the end of our public holiday to make her appearance. The 16th of December is the Day of Reconciliation and therefore she has a very special day for her birthday.

She came around this morning and then her boyfriend Jamie took her and Jayden out for the day.

And Kristine's cutie pie Julie also known as Miss Thang turned 10 today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS JULIE!!!! Have a blast of a day.

Kim's beautiful A Fresh Start kit is still on sale and I meant to blog about it on Friday already, but we've had some line maintenance on our telephone and internet lines and they forgot to reconnect the line when they installed a new splitter box for the block. It has been a very long 5 days without any internet connection.

I loaded this LO at The Garden Parlour's gallery and promptly got Bloom of the Day with it. And I must say it's easy to create great LO's when you have the beautiful kits that Kim comes up with.

I also turned my LO into a QP to share with everyone.

You can get it here.

Have a great day and if all goes well then I'll have something for you tomorrow, but you definitely have to come back for a visit on Friday as something very exciting is about to happen.
