Christmas closes in…

15 Dec

Well it’s only 11 days till Christmas!  Amazing how those last few weeks just totally dissapear before your very eyes and you’re left in a total panic worrying if you’ve organised everything, and bought all the food and presents.  Well that’s me anyway – I’m sure a lot of you are super organised and are calmy floating through these few last days before Christmas feeling totally relaxed and enjoying every second.  Goal for next year – have everything organised for Christmas by November 30th.

I love Christmas though even if it might bring on my first grey hair this year.  The decorations, the food, spending quality time with friends and family.  It’s a very special time of year.  I’ve decided to record the twelve days of christmas starting yesterday and finishing on Christmas day.  I’ll take a photo and write notes each day and then compile it all in a mini book.  I got my inspiration from Ali Edwards December Daily but as the month is already halfway through I decided to keep it to 12 days.  I’m not sure if I should give it a theme like what I am thankful for each day?  We will see.  I will post my pictures up for you and try and take photo’s of the assembling of the book at the end.  i really like the idea of mixing and matching all the left over pockets, pieces and bits to make a book that’s full of variety like this one here.  The only thing is that Ali makes her album before she starts the photo taking and note taking so it’s all ready to go.  Sooo should I sit down and do the same or just compile it at the end?  Hmm some thinking to do on that one.

Tim Holtz has just finished his 12 Tags of Christmas for 2008 and I have a lot of interesting techniques and ideas that I want to have a play with.  Kaszazz stocks many of Tim’s products like Distress Inks and Distress Crackle Paint and more so it would be fantastic to show customers some new ideas for these products.  Tim’s blog is a mecca of information and his tutorials are clearly written and each step is photographed.  What a talented and generous guy!

Exciting news – I have finished one of my 2H Workshop Submissions and it will be tested this Wednesday.  Hopefully it won’t need much revision and I can send it in to Kaszazz.  I think it’s fabulous that Kaszazz Consultants can create workshops for Kaszazz and get paid for them.  And when they’re published your name goes on it too so it’s great recognition.  Once my workshop is published I will be able to post photo’s here for you.  I still have to write up my 5PQ and get it tested sometime soon.

Speaking of exciting news I am going to be teaching some Kaszazz workshops at the Kyabram Community and Learning Centre next February.  You can find more info here and I will list the dates on the blog also for easy reference.  I will be teaching 9 different workshops in total featuring various products and techniques so if you’re in the Kyabram area give them a call to book your seat, their phone number is 03 5852 0000.  Each workshop cost is exactly the same as the Kaszazz price listed on their website and includes tuition, materials and use of tools – super fantastic value!  To see photo’s of the projects simply note down the workshop name then log on to the Kaszazz website here and view the 2H Workshop Flyer – easy peasy!  I will be making up all the samples over the next few weeks so hopefully I can show you some pic’s of my progress.  I am so looking forward to it and I hope to see YOU there too.

I need to send out a Very Happy Birthday Wish for my dear friend Bettsy-Lou, aka Kylie who celebrated her birthday on the weekend.  Cheers to you lovely!

Today has dawned bright and sunny does this signify the end of our rain for summer?  It’s still fresh and breezy every morning and I’m jumping in and out of flannelette pyjama’s every night.  Very strange weather, they say Christmas Day will be our hottest in the last few years but I have my doubts.  So roast or bbq Christmas Lunch that is the question!

Stay safe


ps I am going to see Twilight tomorrow night – I finished the book a few weeks ago and can’t wait to see it.
