Everyday Happenings... and a Share

Phew.... very thankful that the last week of school cylcone of activity is over!

My baby girl, Claire Bear, graduated Year 7...


... eeek, that's 2 in highschool!   We were very proud to see her receive both the Sportsgirl of the Year award and the Diligence Award.  It was a very teary week for her though, as her 'Best-Friend-In-The-World' is leaving... :(

We made huge gift baskets for the teachers... (which I fogot to photograph!)

We got ready for the end of year gala concert.... which was cancelled at the last minute due to storm activity.... only to find it was postponed until two days later, which I then missed altogether because I got the times mixed up!!  *big sigh*  ...  I was having one of those days!!!

We received the school reports in the mail.  I have never been more proud.  3 reports.  20 A's in the achievement column ....  4 B's.  I think this calls for a little spoiling.  :) 

There were also the obligatory break up parties and friends staying over on the weekend.  Maddi actually finished 3 weeks ago, and has been working more hours at her part-time job and earning plenty of Christmas money, which I'm sure is burning a hole in her pocket!  She has also been able to provide me with a little bit of baby-sitting, which has helped me with a few 'Santa jobs'!  Another trip to the big smoke this week, for movies and an ortho visit will probably see an end to said 'Santa jobs' too!  Here's hoping.  :)

Plenty of creative jobs are buliding up too, which I really need to make time for this week.... somehow!!

For now, I'll leave you with some Christmas tags I made recently.  I really LOVE doing tags.  They are quick and simple and so fun to do.  Hmmm - there's that colour scheme again!  Can't say much about what I made them for though... it's a bit of a secret.  ;)


Hope the busy festive season is being kind to you all.  For now, I really need to put my head down and create for a bit.  :)

See you soon.
