I do love the strips of Washi they make it so easy to do something great.
Off to Santa's Village - It was Christmas Eve and we visited Santa in the most amazing Grotto for our photo - so much better than the yearly store ones we have from home! There is a North Pole post office - so all my friends kids got postcards - hehehe I had asked their parents what they were getting so there was a postcard that arrived about 3-4 weeks after Christmas asking them about their gifts in a handwriting they didn't know with a real North Pole postage stamp mark on it. Best bit is there is also a post box to send cards for the following year - everyone got 2! Even their parents were surprised when these ones arrived.
One friend had a letter written to her kids that was about 2 pages long for me to post - we (the parents that are my friends) made the most of this good stuff.
This is the Post office - the fire was roaring in there it was lovely and warm the staff were in T-shirts. Oh and dressed like Elves.
That's my Miss Maeve with Eilish writing postcards to their friends.
Outside was a winter wonderland and I must say we all had fun - this giant snowman was one of many, this was one of only a few photos we got of the 5 of us together.
This is my family - and Santa - the most amazing Santa ever - he spoke 16 different Languages and had us all enthralled with him. In this photo we have My family of 5, my brother with his family of 4 (now 6) my mum and my aunt. It was a big trip for the 11 of us from Australia and took a long time to get there then home again but was so worth it.
One of the Days we went on a special outing into the forest to find critters - the staff dressed up beautifully as woodland critters and we decorated trees in the forest, fed the birds, had a sleigh ride (oh my gosh reindeer are very smelly) and checked out Santa's hideaway cabin. There was a special letter for each of the children in the cabin from Santa - it was truly magical.
Till next time - happy Stamping
