I am celebrating today - just had my 35th and last radio therapy treatment this morning, just before Christmas! For the rest of this year anyway I do not have any appointments etc. just can enjoy my time at home with our boys. DH put a bottle of champagne in the fridge.. and I am preparing a Chinese meal with Duck, we love that.
Yesterday afternoon I tried my hand at Salt dough, never tried it before, I wanted to make some Christmas decorations. It's so easy, you need 1/2 cup of salt, 1/2 cup of water and 1 cup of flour. Mix to a dough - use a cutter to make the forms and then microwave for three minutes. Here are some I made which are all hanging in the tree now. I just used watercolor paints and some glitter glue before adhering a flower with a gem.
I have a card to share as well. I was inspired by Dotukas, here is her photo stream. She might just inspire you too. I had a stamp with some Fir trees from Artistic Outpost that I had never used. Now all my cards have been sent (I think I made around 50 this year) I can use this idea for next year.
I really enjoyed using this stamp for a change!
Then this afternoon I made a whole tin of Christmas cookies, never made these before from a French recipe with chocolate chips but they are delicious!
To count another blessing to my lovely day, I received a little parcel from a lady from our Church in Holland who has always prayed for me. It is a Dutch magazine with beautiful pictures of inspiration for the home, a luxury item I call it! The little heart is handmade from material, and 'Hope' is stamped on it. Gives me an idea too!
I really hope your Christmas planning is not to stressful! I have a lovely link for you to go too - here.
May your Christmas be happy and your New Year blessed!
