Crazy time of the year

I'll start by saying that this has got to be the craziest time of the year.
So much so that I just completed a very long and overdue post on this blog and then bleary eyed, I accidentally deleted it. After a deep breath and a moment to compose myself, I have started this post again.
Why is it that we all seem to not have enough minutes in the day at this time of the year?
I appear organised ...
The tree is up -since November in fact.
There are gifts under it - not the children's of course
My wreath is hanging on the front door.
The Christmas cards have been written.
My long, long lists of purchases are gradually getting smaller ....
and yet, I barely have time to scrap or blog or take time to smell the roses during the festive season. Let's hope things settle down soon.
I had a lovely email recently from Mylen, a DT member from a great french blog called C&S.
She asked if they could use a layout of mine so that others could scraplift it. I was more than thrilled that they would notice my work when there are some of my favourite simple scrappers come from France - they have such a wonderful clean style.
Here is the layout they have on their blog this week. If you go take a look you'll see how some of the other scrappers lifted it. Thank you Mylen.

In other news, I have been have a wonderful time with my photography
This year has been terrific - I have met some great families and made so many new friends.
I am so excited to be flying to Sydney in January to attend a one day workshop with an amazing USA photographer - Jasmine Star. She is considered top 10 in the world.
While I'm in Sydney I'm looking forward to photographing some families that reserved their sessions several months ago - it will be so much fun.
I have 2 session times available - one on Monday 11 January at 3pm and the other on Wednesday 13 January at 8am. Email me if you're interested in some more information -
A one hour session includes all photos on your own disc
as well as five 5x7 images printed.

Before I go and accidentally delete this post, I'd like to wish you all a very merry christmas and a happy and safe new year. Thank you for dropping by my blog and for the kind and encouraging comments I receive - they really make my day.

Merry Christmas to you and your family Leanne. :)

(LOL! my word verification is 'trimm'- how cool is that right under that cute pic of your boys?)

Oh so busy! You're making me feel tired and disorganised! The tree trimming photo is so quintessentially Christmas, just lovely...
