Christmas Photos ....

Both Mad & Seb decided this year they didnt want to see Santa
and have their photo taken :-(
So I said they still have to do the Christmas photo
with the hats I paid a fortune for.
So this morning we took them,
some good ones and some funny ones
and some not so good ones.
I love celebrating birthdays and Christmas
and I love taking photos
of my 2 favourite people I adore and love. xx

Here is the birthday girl ...

My beautiful 11yr old ..

With Seb.

The birthday surprise

The cake....

All Madeline wanted for her birthday was a double bed.
So we decided to re-do her room, to give it an "older" theme.
We "moved" her out last Friday night, packed her case and she moved in with me in my room !



After ...

the blue colouring for the fish turns your hands a really nice shade of blue/green, and doesn't really match black nail polish !!

The snail is made from chocolate icing ..and it tastes very nice ..

Christmas stitching

Christmas is only 6 weeks away, so thought I better get this finished by the 1st Dec so the kids can start the countdown.
The middle is a blackboard and I have appliqued all the decorations with buttonhole stitch, all other stitching is back stitch.
And a big thanks to my wonderful friend Helen who sent me the variegated Threadworx I needed xxxx

Also on the countdown is Madelines 11th birthday ...13 days to go

3rd cupcake class...

We played with flower moulding paste and made the flowers below.
Next week they will go onto cakes.

We also just played around with icings and foundant.
Next Monday I am doing an extra class for christmas cupcakes...

So be prepared for more photos ....
