Fireworks and Christmas capers!

WHOOOO – HOOOO!


There were fireworks the weekend before last! :-) Unite fireworks


When I saw my favourite soccer team - Melbourne Victory -play against Sydney FC at the Etihad Stadium! Winning the game was consequential because the most exciting part of the evening happened prior to the match itself. My DS participated in the pre-match entertainment!!


Along with 50 other kids from various soccer clubs, Aaron waved a national flag to honour Melbourne’s multi-cultural diversity. Fifty one kids – and fifty one countries. Aaron waved the Guatemalan flag…


Here he is… Hi Aaron!!!


Unite Aaron with flag 1


Of course, I had to get a photo of the Union Jack, too!! :-)

While the kids walked around the stadium, drummers drummed and dancers danced for the 17,000 people in the audience. What a great experience. :-)


Now changing the subject completely… are you noticing all the Christmas decorations that are popping up in the shopping centres? Love it! I’m making a couple of special Chrissy ornaments at the moment and will have more on that to show soon.


I’ve also enrolled in Kerryanne’s e-course for making a Christmas Planner…

Isn’t it gorgeous? Even if you haven’t painted before, Kerryanne has some great video tutorials on how to do the various techniques to achieve great results with this project (which also includes gorgeously decorated dividers for the inside of the planner). Kerry’s a fantastic teacher too – I know from experience because I was fortunate enough to have “real life” lessons with her before she made the sea-change to New South Wales. Her video tutorials make you feel like she is in the same room with you… the only difference is – she doesn’t giggle at your jokes!


Oh – and I just had to share this!! Check out the Christmas labels I just ordered…

I also purchased return address labels too – aren’t they cute?! You can add each member of your family and the software takes you through all the different design stages to get the right face shape, hair colour, eyes, decorations etc… If you’d like to design your own bespoke labels, just check out this link!


More to show soon… the SUDs’ hands have been a-busy!!!

Yay for Aaron... and what a proud looking flag bearer he is too. What a hoot for him and the rest of the family.

Love your Christmas stickers and how sweet of you to mention me in your blog post. I miss our classes... we sure did have some fun and giggles. I hope you enjoy painting the Christmas Planner Vik.
