KRAFT + ..

Good day to you! By crikey we are on the down hill run now sliding into Christmas!!! I hope your plans are all coming together..  I find these few days before Christmas Eve are like the quiet before the storm!!!  All the main work starts Christmas Eve when the salads are put together and desserts made... but until then...

I have some news! I have been keeping a secret for a little while now...  I am joining the design Team for
(Drum Roll !!!!!)

KRAFT +   You can see the announcement and the other new designers HERE!!!   

This is an aussie site with aussie designers and I am humbled and excited to be joining the team for 2017.

and so I would like to share with you the challenge for December and my take on it.

Home Sweet Home.. How does this inspire you and what do you think of when you think of  HOME!!?

Well I immediately thought of my family, my children who have made my house a home.. the marks on the wall from kids, the worn carpet or spots when something was split and we could never quite get the stain out..  and at this time of the year, there is no place like home for Christmas.. and that is what I went with..

some closer views..

What is it about a white picket fence around your home??

Home for Christmas..
Happiness (to me) is having the kids home for Christmas...

Thanks so much for coming by, I know this week is gunna get very busy, so in case I dont get back for another post, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, filled with love and family and Gods Blessings and Peace.
