With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Blessed Christmas

Hi again!

Hi, you have probably wondered where I have been?
I know everyone says they are busy but I have had one deadline after another and my dear little blog has had to wait.

And so again today I have a long list of things to do.
My first thing is to wish you and your family a very happy Christmas by making you a picture collage! I have learnt to make these photo collages and I love them. The one I am posting up next is made from some shots from around my house this weekend. 

What a great weekend! On saturday I had the whole of my side of the family over for the day. That is 19 people which is a nice little crowd. We had SUCH a nice day. I took 940 photos. Well, I must say my camera was on rapid shoot and the kids sometimes took hold of it. I got some good ones. Including the chaos that came after people started pushing people into the pool! (Heidi!)

Then on Sunday after church we went to visit some of the family on Mark's side. There were 18 people there but that is just a small portion of his side of the family! We chilled overlooking the river and enjoyed catching up with each other. Nice! Oh I should mention that I put my camera battery on the charger at home... and left it there. So no photos  :(     I also brought the salads and left the pecans at home (which I had so lovingly roasted, candied and chopped).  So that changed my pecan, pocket and fetta salad a bit didn't it? Some quickly roasted pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes from some resourceful women saved the day. Well, it saved the salad anyway.

Do you think I have eaten enough this weekend? Hmmm.
Today I had an orange for breakfast and I think that should do me for the day!

Have a great Christmas Eve!
