A little bit of this, that & the other…

Kay and I had another successful, and extremely hot (37 degrees C), market yesterday. The temperature didn't stop Christmas shoppers from coming out & stocking up. These were the bags I’d made for this market, I included a few more Summery designs. I now have some ready made presents for teachers gifts, 1 more Pay It Forward gift (thanks for being so patient Dee!), and a GIVEAWAY gift.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was going to be making 50 library bags, with my friend Jenny (aka JennyWren) for a Playgroup end of year present. Well, they all have new homes now, Santa gave them out at the Playgroup end of year Christmas parties this week. Here are some gorgeous wee munchkins with their library bags. A HUGE THANK YOU to JennyWren! I absolutely couldn’t have made them without you & your precious family – Amy (cord threader), Matthew (bag turn right side outerer), & Georgia (stacker).

BTW Santa arrived on a scooter, and doesn't he wear very trendy shoes!!!

Just to finish off, I thought I’d show you a few of my new favourite Christmas tree ornaments that I picked up in the post Christmas sales last year.

Now I just need the handbags to match!

Ok, we did mention we would like to have a GIVEAWAY for our 100th blog post and 1st Blogiversary – we are now up to our 115th post and are 139 days late for the Blogiversary :( Anyway, to make up for it we will wrap all these milestones together and have a Christmas GIVEAWAY instead (great idea Katherine!) – details & prizes coming soon. 

With Love

Great way to encourage those little ones to keep reading!!

Loving all the bags - lucky smalls.

(ps - as Santa is groovy enough to arrive on a scooter no one will be worrying about daggy shoes!)

trash said...

OK. I read that wrong. (I did wonder as I thought the shoes were rather swish)

Your stall was fabulous and I have already had some lovely comments on my new bag! Wow - 50 library bags - what a production line, but such a great gift idea for the little ones.

The library bags are fab and I am sure they will get a lot of use.
