Stop the world I wanna get off!

...And it's only the first week of December! God it's been so busy these past 2 weeks. Mammy taxi, Christmas shopping, roof tiles falling off and the impossible task of tracking down a roofer to even quote, let alone do the job, tumble dryer given up the ghost and the resulting laundry mountain, not to mention parent teachers meetings, crops and classes to prepare for this weekend (throw in a change of venue for good measure), emails and phonecalls, Christmas dinners and drinks to arrange - lists, lists, list getting longer and longer. I'm dreaming of a ...sleepy Christmas -tra la la la lah la lah lah la!

This is how I feel today :-)




So to business - this weekend Annamarie and I are holding a joint crop and scrapbooking class ina new venue to accomodate the growing number of paper addicts who seem to like turning up each month :-) The venue is Donnycarney community and youth centre. Class spaces are filled but there are crop spaces available if anyone would like to attend.

I will be teaching a double layout class (sneaky peak coming up) and Annamarie will teach a make and take. There will also be a raffle, a challenge, secret santa, atc swap and lots of festive fun...






Next Tuesday 11th Dec I'm teaching a fundraising class in Castleknock National School from 7pm-8.30pm. The theme is 'when I grow up' and parents are invited to bring a child along so they can work in a team to make this framed layout. Nice to keep or give away as a Christmas pressie. Contact me if you would like to attend...



So what nice things happened to me today in the chaos? Well a parcel arrived for my two little pixies and they were thrilled when they opened up and found these door hangers from JeanJeany. In their eyes Jeanjeany is a legend-they actually think she is a genie of sorts who grants wishes. In some ways they are right as she is the most generous person - always sending bits and pieces. She sent a lovely card to the two of them all about the big man in the red suit who is calling in 20 days... Thanks JJ - will return the favour!



Another nice thing that happened is I got an email from Cheryl of Scrapbook Inspirations to say she has picked two of my LO's this month for publication in the Spring - yay! It's the little things...

Well as it is December and the season has begun (or is about to anyday!)let's have some Christmas cheer then...this made me giggle...
