The festive season is upon us......time to get busy!

Today is the first of December and this marks the first day of Summer for us Aussies and Kiwis. There is a sweet buzz of excitement in the air.  The weather is warmer, the skies are clear and blue.  School is about to break for the summer and christmas day is swiftly about to loom.  Summertime fun is all about BBQ's, the beach and fun in the sun.  The days are longer and the nights are balmy.  Oh how I love thee! 

On the flipside, our friends in the northern part of the world are now into their Winter.  Whilst I love the summertime feel, the very thought of sitting cosily infront of the log fireplace with a glass of red, watching the snowfall through the window is just as alluring.  I envy those who have been lucky enough to experience a white christmas.  I have always dreamed of a white christmas.....

But for now, let's get back to reality shall we?

Our design team had a blast bringing to life their inspiration for thanksgiving and christmas cheer. Many of their projects have featured our new Bella! Wedding papers and Joyeux Noel collection which the girls have had lots of enjoyment with.    

So what did everyone get up to last month?  Let's take a look....

Thanksgiving inspired Christine to create this stunning layout of her beautiful daughter's with whom she is so blessed and thankful to have in her life.  We hope all our American friends had a wonderful thanksgiving with their loved ones.

Following on with the thankful theme, Teresa delighted us with this cute 'Thankful Box'.  It's a fun project to make with the kids and perfect for them to keep all little reminders of what they're thankful for in their lives.

Featuring our Bella! Raw & Rustic collection, Alicia created this stunning thanksgiving card set using natural colours and textures.

The Christmas Cards You'll Never Want to Alicia Barry

December is without a doubt a very busy time for everyone.  The retail stores are turned upside down, our credit cards get a major workout, the roads are crazy and fridges are bursting at the seams with food and drinks ready for the big day.  There is no denying that the hype and buzz of the festive season is somewhat exhilarating.  It is my most favourite time of the year and I plan to enjoy every single moment. It won't be long and I'll be back on this blog saying goodbye to 2016 and welcoming in the new year.  Where did that time go?  

Stay tuned this month for some more Christmas inspiration from our design team and we wish you all plenty of joy, love & happiness during this festive season.  See you all next year!!
