Such a lucky Gal x

Sarah over at the art of moodling has invited us all to share our Christmas gifts. I have been especially lucky this year and love every single gift for the thought and love that has been put into choosing them.

First off books - I also got a book called the 12 days of Christmas but that's up by the side of my bed almost read already! I have felt so indulgent having the time to read and so look forward to getting into these too.
This was my pressie from my boys. I continue to explore the concepts of art journalling although I have not done any of late - i think all my creative juices have gone into other projects but I know its there when i want to dabble.

Someone knows my love of Sir Tim that's for sure how much fun will I have with these?

and wow with this too!

Music for my ears - I love Pink which many folk are quite surprised at although not as surprised as my youngest son was at the knowledge I used to be a huge fan of ACDC - i love it when I'm unpredictable to my kids LOL!

Another Sir Tim Goody - I love all his quotes but especially the top right hand one as dancing in the rain seems inevitable for me sometimes!

How about these beauties too Love love love them!

How warm and Christmassy is this to snuggle into? A gorgeous woolly scarf for those very cold and wintry days.

I cant tell you how lucky I feel to have got these beauties too - cant wait to get started on next years Christmas LOL

This is gorgeous - the pic does not do it justice. An altered notebook and frame from my lovely Pal Michelle x

and these gorgeous trinkets from my Pal Elaine.

My colleague at work Jacci always gets me the most wonderful calendars for Christmas as well as the most generous of gifts. She has given me most of the gifts featured here. A wonderfully generous soul she really does love the giving part of Christmas I was truly spoiled.

This is fab and was my secret Santa gift from the Tuesday card group. Lovingly stitched by hand I just think its wonderful. It also came with some home made brandy truffles which were scoffed in the blink of an eye LOL.

This is my most unexpected gift. I cried when I opened it as it really was not something I expected at all. An early birthday pressie from my Bro and SIL. (my birthday is August) he thinks he will be made redundant in the new year so they decided to make sure everyone had a gift in case they could not afford it through 2011. I really was over whelmed.
I also got other gifts too - a hairdryer heat gun, long coveted from my mum and some lovely simple gold sleepers for my eczema ridden ears. she also got me some lovely pink furry lined slipper boots which have been my preferred footwear all Christmas LOL.
I also got a fab scrapbook kit from pals Bee and Dee with oodles of ribbon on the gift to recycle! My secret Santa from work was a box of lily o brian chocs and a bottle of asti - predictably they are now no more! some smelly gift sets which are really welcome too. Some red candle sticks and some tree dec from my sis and also a tree dec from Jacci. A Christmas Santa from Michelle too who is standing proud on the fireplace so I was truly a lucky gal this Christmas - I hadn't realised I had been sooooo good!
Hope on over to Sarah's place and check out her post - she also got some stunning gifts and has already had fun playing!
Hope Christmas was happy for you x

  6. I'm going to the Take That concert too - woohoo!!! I knew I was getting my ticket, it's so lovely knowing I'm going to go. I've been listening to the flood almost constantly since my hubby gave it to me for Christmas. Yes Sister, No sister is a book I've been looking at and wondering whether to read. But look at your stash!!! Fantastic, what a great Christmas you've had :)
