Look what the mailman brought to me yesterday! How exciting, my 6 Things swap organised by Maree has arrived. My gifts are from Barbara, and they look very intriguing. I have opened the one shown on top and found the cutest needlebook(something for the craftroom). How did Barbara know that I adore paisley fabric??!? I love it, thank you so much Barbara. She even included a gift for each of the girls, who unlike their mother have placed their unopened gifts under the Christmas tree . But I have put my other gifts under the tree and we'll see if they make it till Christmas. Probably won't, patience is not my strong point! Obviously I have Barbaras address on the parcel, but I can't find an email or blog address for Barbara to say thanks. So if you happen to be reading this Barbara, please pretty please send me an email(on my sidebar) so I can thank you directly.
Finally for today, these two cookies in a jar were last minute teacher gifts delivered by the girls to school today. The inspiration for these cookie jars came from Shabby Art Boutique, where there have been lots of fab Christmas ideas recently. This is the actual cookie jar link. My very good intentions to stitch them a small gift have just not happened in the mad rush of the last few weeks.
Today is the last day of school for the year and I am so pleased, everyone is tired and crabby and ready for a break. Life has been so crazy for the last few months, I keep thinking next week will be better, but it doesn't work out that way. lol However, I am hoping that *next* week will finally be a little quieter. I went to town and did most of my Christmas shopping yesterday, a big day, but great to have it done, since my helpers will be tagging along behind me after today.
We are heading away after school with friends for a couple of nights to Queenstown. It will be great to unwind with a glass of wine(or two) and some R & R by the lake.
Thanks for stopping by today, and for the kind and thoughtful comments you leave, I love reading them, I am woefully behind in my blog reading, but will catch up on everyone when we're back next week.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, I'll catch you next week .................. Nicky
