I dreamed up these little angels for our Christmas party table toppers. Then I made 6 of them and I adore them.
We hosted a Christmas party for 34 family members for our Great Big Family Christmas. We have an enormous backyard but every time we hold a backyard function it rains. This time, thunderstorms were predicted. So on Saturday when tBG and I were erecting the first of three wall-less marquees I convinced him that we would be wise to play table tetris indoors and see if we could have the party inside. We moved the furniture into our bedroom and had seating for 36 people in our dining room and lounge room.
I went overboard on the Christmassyness of the decorating and I loved it.

Everyone had a lovely time at the party, it's so nice that we all get along so beautifully - such a blessing. And it rained cats and dogs - so praise be that we managed to fit everyone and everything inside.
We're off to Italy in 2 sleeps. Backpacks packed, waterproof hiking boots purchased and broken in, 16 kg spare luggage allowance to buy lots of pressies and bring them home. Praying that Fiumicino airport doesn't get closed and that no more of Pompeii collapses.
For the next little while I'll be off enjoying our we-didn't-manage-to-have-a-baby-so-we'll-have-a-fucking-great-holiday-instead jaunt. I hope you all have good Christmases and that 2011 fulfils all your deepest desires.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
