a taste of the chrissy issue


A few new ways to decorate your tree, or lack of tree, like this wall decal

Those screams of annoyance and frustration you hear? Why they would be coming from me! Here's why:
1. Website decided to warp itself today and has no scrollbar. Not sure why. In fact, no one seems to! Not even clever website people as they haven't called me back with a solution. So this means all you get to see is what is on the page when it loads.
2. Free Christmas planner and stencils are still not up to be downloaded. Not that it matters anyway right now because of point 1! Have been promised them tonight.
3. Mag sampler also not up - tomorrow, hopefully. Again, out of my hands. As much as I appreciate all the outside help for the site, I don't like having to rely on other people!
4. Being woken up every half hour last night by screaming son who must have known I wanted an early night to catch up on lack of sleep from last few weeks. Well he HAD slept through three nights in a row, so it was bound to happen eventually...

So I'll let you enjoy these few spreads from the latest issue while I go and cry into a cup of Milo!


The shopping guide. I've already flagged a few items. Not the pigeon cushion though. I think that could enter Design*Sponge's ugliest cushion contest! hehe

Stepped out Christmas party - invites, decorations, themes covered!

I noticed the website was a bit funny the other day but I thought it was my fault somehow. I hope it's sorted out now.

Hope you got all the issues ironed out. This mag issue was definitely a saviour for my drive to Newy. I'm listening to LENKA (suggested in mag) right this minute, cheers its right up my alley. My mum lives by the sea with lots of yachts around and loved the seaside xmas tree and plans on making her own. Way too many things on my wish list...
