Ginger bread houses

With so much going on this time of year, there was no way we were baking our own ginger bread houses. 

So I was excited when shopping at Coles and I spotted ginger bread kits for ten bucks! They have plenty of options, an Outback shack, Ginger bread train, Ginger bread house, a large Ginger bread man and the one that I got the Ginger bread village, which comes with five little houses and was perfect for the children to all make there own.

Poppy put so much love into her little house, where as Rory and Alexis were more interested in eating the lollies and icing, but managed to keep some for their little houses.


Everyone was happy with their masterpieces and they are sitting in a safe place ready to be eaten on Christmas day (minus a few lollies.)

Do you make ginger bread creations at Christmas?

Have you tried one of Coles ginger bread kits?

Happy Wednesday. xx

Christmas Wreath

A little Christmas wreath makeover,

We collected some blue gum from a tree over the fence.

Wrapped it around the existing cane wreath.

Added a few glittery birds and some red baubles for a pop of color.



And voila! A very Australian Christmas wreath, that smells amazing.

Do you have a Christmas wreath up at your place?

Happy Tuesday! x

Glitter globes

Happy 1st of December! 

It's a rainy, muggy day here with a bit of thunder and lighting every now and then which gives the twins a chance to squeal with excitement.

I thought I would share the craft we did yesterday as it would be perfect for a rainy day. Pretty glitter globes which are a bit 'Christmassy', considering the big fella is only 24 days off coming. 
You will need jars, any size will work but we used little baby food jars, glitter, a hot glue gun, something to put in your glitter globes, we used plastic animals but mini Christmas trees or snow men would work well, and water.

We glued our animals onto the inside of the jar lids.

Covered the bottom of the jars with glitter, we used Christmas colors.

Added water and turned upside down ready for a good shake!!

Shake Shake.


An easy, pretty little craft that we made using items we had around the home.

Happy Days. x
