Free Holiday Knit Gift Tags | December 15, 2011

So, what has everyone got planned for the holiday break? On the very top of my list are activities that involve minimal thinking and couch appreciation.

We're also looking forward to Sukie's very first trip to the beach and enjoying other dog-friendly excursions. I'm certain there will also be much merriment over various BBQs with friends, regular meltings in the summer heat and excessive chocolate consumption. (I've come to the conclusion that it is impossible to avoid sugar overload during the holidays so this year I'm not even going to try.)

But before I get ahead of myself, there is still much to be done. As usual, I have left everything to the absolute last minute. Next week will be a flurry of gift making, packaging and shopping- oh my.

Anyway, please enjoy these gift tags that I've designed for you- Hope they help you with your last minute gift projects.

FREEBIE: 'Peace, Love and Reindeer Hugs' Gift Tags | November 23, 2011

So with this concept in mind, I've created these little tags for you to download and use for your holiday gifting.

Happy Holidays! | December 24, 2010

For my final post for the year I thought I would share with you some of the little details of my holiday decorating. In all the insanity, leading up to Christmas, it's nice to immerse myself in the the serenity depicted in these shots and I hope you enjoy them too.

You may recognise this little dove - it's the spring bird card from o-check. This beautiful frame was purchased from Est about a year ago. (Unfortunately, I can't remember the creator's name as I've lost the tag that came along with it).

These nifty white wire fairy lights were purchased from Ikea. They look amazing scattered around the apartment. My only regret is not buying more! The next time I was there they were all sold out.

I bought the larger tree bark votive holder a year ago from Est. The smaller votive was purchased recently from Capital Kitchen. My husband arrived home a couple of days ago carrying the biggest bunch of flowers I have ever seen! This lovely white rose was tied around the base of the arrangement.

This birch tree ornament was also a purchase from Capital Kitchen.

I want to say a huge thank-you to all my readers over this last year. It's been a fantastic journey! I look forward to returning in a couple of weeks time- January 10, 2011 with regular updates. Have a wonderful and happy holiday season everyone!

See you all in the new year! xxoo
