Well the painting is all done (apart from the laundry cause that's gonna be a HUGE job) and it looks really lovely! I'm so excited to finally have my little house all the one shade of cream, and looking just like I've always dreamed it would one day!
In between the painting, I also did a fair bit of shopping last week replacing some old bits and pieces, and I finally got my new dining room suite that matches all our other furniture too! So all in all it was a big week in the Thomas house hold and I'm glad to be getting back to normal! I think it would be safe to say that 'Santa' definitely arrived at our house early! lol
My first crafty job to tackle was some little christmas gifts for Maddi's small group of school friends. Each year she gets me to make them a little something, and this year, I bought a pile of lip glosses from Avon, and attached them to a little candry wrapper box filled with a few chocolates and soft lollies! I had to make 12 of these this morning and let me just say........ I'm definitely ready to move onto something other than making boxes! lol
That beautiful striped paper is a 'freebie' in this months Better Homes And Gardens Magazine! Each candy wrapper box is decorated with the same paper, I just changed the colour of the box. I've made 4 green, 4 pink and 4 orange. I then cut a pile of little tages (4 of each colour) and made sure each colour group had a different colour tag attached to it!
Simple little gifts that all up cost about $2.00 each - ya can't beat that hey!
