Where has the month gone????? and a winner of blog candy!! yay me!!!

Or should I be saying where has the year gone??? I cannot believe it's ten days to christmas!!! My boys are very excited about Christmas and the lead up. We took a trip into the city on the train on the weekend and went and saw Santa and had a look at the Myer windows (Myers is a big department store in Australia and here in melbourne every year they choose a theme or a book and decorate the windows with animated characters and places that go with them. This years theme is "The Nutcracker") My oldest son also had his last day of kinder today and Santa stopped by to say hello and the looks on the kids faces was priceless. They were all so excited!!! I can't wait till Christmas morning!!
I have not joined in, in a single challenge at all this month and probably won't get a chance to till the new year. But I have been creating in between attending kinder, concerts and parties, funerals and orientation days at school!! Because I have been so busy I have not had the time to make Christmas cards this year but i'm hoping to at least get an email card made up before christmas and sent out!!!
Every year I make the kinder and swimming teachers presents and this year was no different except this year i cheated a bit and bought jars to decorate!!! This year I made chocolate truffles, yo yo's and fudge to fill the jars and was very with the end resuts both in look and taste!! hehehehe!!

 So, speaking of candy, there is a lot of blog candy out in blogland at the moment!!! I have been looking at all the advent calendars that are happening, magnolia inspirations, and Whiff of joy are just two of many and to my delight and excitement, after leaving many comments I WON!! On day 7 of the Magnolia Inspirations advent calendar I had to go to Mary's blog and make a comment on her gorgeous creation she made with a magnolia stamp and out of the 500+ comments I was randomly picked!!  Thanks Mary!! Not sure what I have won but something from magnolia so can't wait to see what it is!! And last month I hopped along on the Tickled Pink Stamps Lil Christmas Blog Hop and made comments on all the DT's blogs and won a Lil Fashionette 60's Willow... I had totally forgotten i'd even done the blog hop until Yanitza let me know via my blog. Thanks yanitza!!
