I popped these free Christmas Gift Tag printables on the blog last year, and Jenni reminded me about them yesterday when she posted a pic on Instagram.
You can either right click and save the JPEG file, or download the PDF version to print. Simply cut out, punch a hole and adds some string and you're all set!
They're sized for an A4 sheet.
If you don't want to use them as gift tage, you can also just cut them out to make an advent calendar like Jenni has done - brilliant idea!!!

I had big plans for my stall at Maribyrnong Makers Market the weekend, but there are just not enough hours in the day to achieve everything I want to do, so unfortunately I've had to pull out.
Of course that means that I have lots of stock to sell online instead.
I have lots of lovely and completely unique Santa Sacks available via my Facebook Page. Theyre an original CurlyPops design printed onto a lovely cotton/linen blend. They're fully lined with cotton drill and have a drawstring closure.
If youd like one just pop on over to FB and comment!

Well what a whirlwind of a weekend..... and in the blink of an eye it's all over!
I headed to Brissy on Friday and Nic organised a lovely dinner in the city with Jennie, Selina, Kylie, Steph and Anna. It was a great night - plenty of laughs and delicious food overlooking the river, with such great group of girls!
It was an early start on Saturday morning to get everything set up for Finders Keepers. I dragged around 50kgs of luggage to Brissy and Nic was the organiser extraordinaire, desigining and setting up my stall with her props. I could never have even imagined doing this without her help!
In extremely unfortunate timing, my phone decided to completely fritz itself, and so I have hardly any photos. All of these lovely photos are courtest of Nic.
My favourite part of the weekend was meeting so many lovely bloggers / crafters / instagrammers. Everyone was so welcoming and so helpful.
If there was a prize for the most colourful stall, I would have won hands down!

It's the big launch night this Friday!
I'm over on the Creative Womens Circle blog today with a little interview about my title page design for Dawn Tan.
I'll be winging my way to Brissy for Finders Keepers so I'm not going to make it to the launch...
But I can't wait for my pre-ordered copy to arrive in the mail! It'll be the first time that one of my designs has appeared in a real life book - so exciting!!!

It's been crazy busy around these parts lately....
Not long after I found out that I had a spot at the Finders Keepers Market in Brissy, I received a phone call from my previous employer and was offered a permanent full time job. I wasn't planning on going back to work full time so soon after my transplant, but you can't look a gift horse in the mouth, so of course, I said YES!
It's been such a luxury to use the Territory on the daily commute. It's a 60 kilometre round trip each day, so I've been completely spoiled. I think the things I love the most are being able to stream the music from my iPhone straight through the stereo, and also the bluetooth capabilities to make and receive calls. I'm sure I'll be looking for all those stereo and phone buttons on my steering wheel when I go back to my car!
Between Work, Finders Keepers preparations, the Melbourne Marathon, and Great Strides (blog post to come), I've really been missing hanging out and having fun with my little nephews.
After I arrived home from Sunday morning's walk, I packed a picnic, picked up the boys in the Territory and headed for the beach.
The weather wasn't great but we didn't care!
There was lots of fossicking - the beach was filled with interesting shells, rocks, seaweed, and even jellyfish. Eeeeeek!
The boys even managed to find a starfish in the shallows...
It got a little bit chilly on the beach, so when it came time for a picnic, we changed our plans and decided to become human CARGO.
The back of the Ford Territory is mahoosive (that's a made up word which means even bigger than massive).
All I had to do was to fold the seats down, lay down our picnic blanket, and we were as snug as bugs in a rug (literally on a rug anyway)
Of course, the boys favourite part of the Territory is the DVD player. We turned the picnic into a little outdoor cinema session and watched The Croods.
The boys had a wonderful time... and Aunty Cam did too!
Thanks so much to Ford and to Kidspot for the awesome experiences with the Ford Territory Titanium as part of Voice of 2013.
