Greetings lovely friends & readers
Well another Christmas is behind us & tomorrow evening we roll on in to a shiny New Year.
I thought I would do a bit of a recap on some projects I completed in December but did not get to post about prior to Christmas. In no particular order here either 😉 . . . . .
While searching the internet for a Primitive Santa pattern I stumbled across these beautiful patterns from Kentucky Primitives & fell in love with this one - "Mousie's Christmas Letter to Santa"
The pattern comes as an instant download & included is the Letter that Mousie wrote to Santa, which you then have to coffee stain & generally "muddy up".

I got these large books for free from my local 2nd hand Bookstore in Kihikihi, so I painted & distressed them for Mousie to stand on ... a little primitive vignette.
I packaged up & posted off a large order of my Citrus & Rose petal potpourri to the bottom of the South Island.
You may recall the swap I mentioned in * this post * where I made the 8 felt mice to send to my swap partners. A gorgeous array of Christmas Ornaments & gifts began to trickle through my mailbox. We were allowed to create, thrift or purchase a Christmas related ornament & the girls came up with such a wide variety of goodies.
|This year I made Gingernut Bites, Fudge Cake & Mars Bar Slice|
I made my usual Christmas baked treats & packaged them up in cellophane & brown paper bags ready for gifting to friends.
