handmade christmas challenge...

Another present down, I won't show it in it's entirety in case it's spotted by the person who is to receive it.  But I do love it, one of those gifts that would be easily kept & put to use right here at home.  That's usually a good indication of a great gift, I guess.
One of my favorite things at Christmas time is Santa riding up the drive on his motor bike Christmas morning with those presents he forgot to leave the night before...
this has been a tradition in my family's street for as long as I can remember & I'm so glad my boys get to enjoy it now too.  Some years he'd turn up on the back of a Ute or an old pick up truck, ringing his bell from miles away, so exciting & special.  Then we'd all get dressed & pop over to the neighbours for a champagne brekky before heading out to our family gatherings.

  1. I'm so impressed you're getting organised for Christmas already. I might join in the handmade Christmas challenge too. It's such a gorgeous time of year but it arrives in a rush, we're all exhausted after a long year and then it's over! Maybe a different approach will help everyone this year.

  2. I just love the picture of Santa in action. As for your mysterious presssie, I can't work it out but it looks creative and intriguing. Thanks for joining in this week in the challenge. Trace :)

  3. so cool to get ready for Christmas already. I should start too.what a sweet and endearing tradition you have !

  4. I love the cutlery print - whatever you've put it on, whatever the mystery pressie is, I'll sign up for one! Beautiful.
