Just taking a moment before I head to the supermarket for the big pre Christmas shop to duck in here and share a few Christmas cards I made at a recent craft retreat.
I feel very lucky to be part of the small group that heads off a few times a year to this beautiful craft retreat in Lancefield. Leanne and Jenn that organise it all do an amazing job of the theme, little gifts and decorating - and of course the yummy food. With my craft room out of action for a fair chunk of 2019 it has been nice to get away to get stuck into some creating.
I hope your lead up to Christmas is all going smoothly. Things ticked off those lists, presents wrapped, food preparations going well, some smiles for the busy retail workers. We are hosting John's side of the family this year and I'm making a couple of new dishes. Had a trial run last week and they were very yummy. This salmon roulade was delicious and I can make it the day before - bonus. And also from Georgia from Well Nourished this yummy dairy free dessert. (We have a few non dairy family members so thought this would be a handy addition.) This keeps really well in the freezer so making that one today.
Wishing all of my lovely customers, class regulars, blog and newsletter readers and fellow crafters a very merry Christmas and all the very best for the New Year. May it bring health and happiness and of course lots of time to pursue passions and get creative.
Love Sue xx
PS: If you've placed an order this year your new catalogues went into the post last week (midweek) so should be arriving soon. With the Christmas post things can take a little longer so they may not arrive until after all the rush. Let me know when yours arrives - I always worry a bit they'll go AWOL in the mail somewhere. Host code goodies in the same envelope for those who used the host code in recent months. Happy browsing everyone - the new catalogue and Saleabration starts January 3rd. Customers and any craft lovers without a demonstrator - I'll do another mail out after Christmas so give a holler if you'd like a copy.
