Hi All,

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone for tomorrow, I hope you all have a fantastic day spending it with your loved ones.

I'm not going to select "pics of the week" this week, but leave you all a Christmas Message from me instead.

But don't worry next week I'll make it a double banger and select double the amount for the New Year.

So from me and our beloved dog Charlie...

MDS all the way...

Hi Crafters,

Every week so far I've generated and adjusted the pictures on Photoshop before blogging, but not everyone has this programme where as most demonstrators have MDS, so with only 2 more post until the lovely Janet Mills takes over from me on the NZSU blog I thought I'd generate this weeks "pics of the week" on MDS.

Not only does this programme allow you to select a size you want your project to be, it also allows you to adjust the photos and adds a drop shadow on all images at once, I'm quite impressed by the result so why not give it a go yourself.

Now onto this weeks pics...

What has been your favourite received gift?

Hi Crafters,

Well only 13 days till Christmas and my kids are getting more and more excited, I'm not sure why because we don't even have our tree up

I'm the type of person that LOVES! giving gifts more than receiving, the thought of someone enjoying the item you selected is fantastic.
What was the one gift you remember enjoying the most? one that sticks in your mind as a fun memory? The one present that I remember even to this day still makes me smile. It was when I was a young girl and I received my very first bike, it was pink with pink tassels on the handle bars and I just loved it. I couldn't of been any older than 10 but even now I still think about that bike :)

Well ponder that question, it might bring back some great memories from your past Christmas's.

Now onto this weeks pics...

Have a great week everyone!

Woops and 20 days to go and counting...

Hi Crafters,

By golly the week has gone fast, here I was thinking it was Tuesday but in fact it was Wednesday and I've missed posting by one day for the week, some could get excited by the fact the week is that much closer to the weekend, however for me it's NOOO I still have so much to do, and where did my Tuesday go... gotta laugh old age creeping in :)

Without further adieu please find below this weeks pics, I must say they are looking very Christmassy, ow I do love this time of year...

Have a fantastic week everyone.
