Each year I am on the hunt for a new Christmas album.
This one is beautiful.
The itunes download includes a 45 minute burning log video to sit beside as you listen.

Meredith’s got a fabulous idea for fantasticly simple bible content here. Love it especially this close to Dec 1.
If you know what you want each day to hold, but need a little visual inspiration, have a look at my pinterest board here.
This year I have an unusual plan which focus’s on letters….. we will see how that goes.
I just realised that our advent events for 2012 are not collated….. so I will get onto that.
Enjoy, and let me know if you come across anything inspiring.

Hello hello hello….. yes I am still alive and I am slowly coming up for air. Crazy busy last couple of months. I will share with you over the next few weeks some of the highlights and a few other things I have been slowly saving for you over those months.
But for now….. something fabulous. Poppytalk calls it ‘What happen’s when you give kids thousands of stickers. Take it as a pre-Christmas warning….. or Encouragement …. if you like.
- Hat-tip Poppytalk, stuart addelsee, sccart, and heybubbles and colossal). Via The New Domestic. …. so apologies if you have seen it before.
- I think it appeals to me because it’s how the last half of the year has felt like, but makes it look so much more joyful than it was some days.
- Though out it all Tim was fabulous and the kids were great. I am hoping and praying that in the next month leading up to Christmas I can embrace the joy in the chaos….. and get to take the opportunity to serve them, and others, like they have been serving me.

Saw this and just thought I should share.

Last week our 10 year old…. and lots of other public school kids …… made their Opera House debuts. What an exciting night of so many talented kids.

After a few hiccups in the organisational expertise of the art world, (read grrr….. how much fluffing around can a dozen or so artistic people engage in…. grr) the exhibition I spoke of back here is soon to become a reality.
The biggest hiccup, which we have only just become aware of, is a change of date to this Thursday the 8th from around 6pm. You can however, visit all this week from 11am until 5pm, in the Dedspace gallery located in the grounds of Sydney College of the arts.
As I mentioned in the earlier post, this exhibition is part of Sydney Design. This is a group of about 75 events across Sydney from the 3-18th August. Follow the link through for a timetable of possibilities over the next couple of weeks.
At this stage, I am minding the exhibition tomorrow from 11 for a couple of hours, so that would be a great time to drop in if you want to see me too.
The benefit of changing the date will mean that on one night you will be able to enjoy the opening nights of three exhibitions on campus. One exploring the use of camouflage and the other, souvenirs. It should be an interesting evening.
If you are unable to make it, and are interested in viewing the works, an online PDF catalogue is being produced.
…..and I want to say a super big public thanks to Charles who made my little piece look amazing with his crazy photographic skills.

About 4 weeks out from the end of session I had the irrepressible urge to knit or crochet. After managing to incorporate some of this desire into one of my final projects (watch this spot) ….. I had some supplies left, so…… I embarked on a scarf. I wore it for the first time today. It hit the spot perfectly as it was quite chilly watching the athletics carnival today at school (yes, very, very disappointing and boring).
The other girls started some projects too, but they are still coming and I will give you a look if they get completed.

Sorry it’s been
a bit very quiet around here lately.
School holidays are alway a mixture of joy and noise (sometimes yelling…not only from the kids) and big projects and rest and fun and movies and organised camp fun and time with friends and family.
I was aware this holidays, more than ever before, that the girls are spreading their wings and are more able to spend holidays without us, and that they won’t be around for holidays forever. A joy and a sadness because I do love having them around, and mostly they enjoy being with each other.
God has been very gracious to us, and it’s a joy to watch them grow into his love and express it in different ways.
I only took photos on one day of the holidays, for our picnic at Pretty Beach on the Central Coast.
How was your holiday if you had one?
Also, if you went somewhere close and cheap…..I’d love to hear about that too.
* I’m loving google+. I take photos on my phone and automatically they appear on my computer (no cords YAY) and even panorama, animate and image select automatically, without erasing the separate images. Give it a go, if you haven’t already.
