I thought you might like to see some more of my Christmas decorations. I bought this little break-away box a few weeks ago. It lights up and looks really sweet on the coffee table. I would like to make a break-away box "one day".

I love the little houses that light up. The smaller ones in front are battery operated but I forgot to switch them on for the photo, oh dear! My cat Harry still manages to jump up on this desk in the kitchen to see out of the window.I often discover his "re-arranging" efforts.The mantle-piece is a great place to display some of my favourite things.

I can't believe just how long it's been since my last post. I've been so busy what with one thing and another.
First there was the school exams. I'm a supervisor at a local high school for the V.C.E. exams.
This is the Victorian Certificate of Education exams that are for year 12 high school ( last year of high school). They are held twice yearly and always using supervisors from 'outside' the school concerned.
End of year exams are held over 3 weeks , I did 16 of them. I really love the work but it is very tiring as you must stay on your feet all the time and most importantly, keep quiet!!
Some of the exams go for 3 hours so it's a long time without talking.
I have managed to make some new Christmas decorations though, there's always time for craft.
The little trees are very simple, two are made with paper and the other using suffolk puffs glued onto a foam shape. I've made quite a few trees over the years, fabric, felt and covered bottle tops to think of a few.I love this little angel, my lovely husband cut it out for me and I painted her and the standing angel with the beautiful wings. I don't do enough folk art. Every now and then the mood takes me and out come the paints and brushes!
