You can't argue with this....

My eight year old son did this at school.
Santa and the reindeers exist.
I've heard some people say that Santa is not real. But I know he is real and if you read the following pages I will prove it to you.

When I wake up in the morning and I see Santa's footprints, surely this is evidence that he has been here and left presents.

In the night I hear my dog barking. This clearly shows that Santa is in the neighbourhood.

Santa is real because all the Christmas movies and songs like the Polar Express and songs like jingel bells,makes it s fact, and all would agree that Santa must be real.

Every year the news reporters say that Santa is on his way and we even see the footage.

Hope you learnt a lesson and instead of believing that Santa is not real and believe that he does exist.

Have we convinced you? I believe - do you?
Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas season.
Warm Wishes,
Lynda ( bettsylyn)

There's one present under the tree.....

There's only one present under the tree. It looks a bit lonely doesn't it? Can you guess what it is? Yes, it's my SSCS present from Tracey. There's a Santa pez dispenser there too - I'm surprised that the kids haven't tried to influence me to open that.

And look.... it's the Christmas decoration which came with the swap. It was nice to have something to open when the parcel arrived. Isn't it just the cutest little redwork Santa you have ever seen?

So thank you Tracey - I can't wait until Christmas Day when I can open my gift.
And of course thank you to Chookyblue for organising this wonderful swap again this year.

3-2-1 swap

A little while ago I signed up for a swap with Paula at Coffee Time Stitches. The plan was to make a tote bag and add 3 things for stitching, 2 Christmas goodies, and one recipe.

My parcel arrived from Tasha but I'm afraid I can't show you what the parcel looked like as it arrived because it was too exciting and I couldn't wait to open it. I love blue and green and look at my bag - even though it is Christmas fabric it is in my favourite colours. Yay!

Inside the bag there was a pattern, some fat quarters, scissors with a cute scissor fob, and sadly I've just noticed that the cute Christmas notepad and gingerbread chap stick were cut from the photo. And did I mention the chocolate - well it had to go straight into the refrigerator, so it's not showing up. The recipe was for peanut butter cups which I know my boys love - so it was a great parcel.

The bag itself is huge and reversible - you can see more cute fabric inside which I could change to if I wish. It is one of those bags which will be perfect to carry all the presents around in when we go visiting.

And even though it is in Christmas fabric I have this earmarked as my new Yoga bag because it will be large enough to carry my mat and cushion, as well as my blanket in winter. It is absolutely perfect for that and now I can take one thing off my "things I want to make" list.
(I won't tell you how many things are left on that list though)
Thank you so much Tasha and also Paula for organising this swap.
