December Daily: Day 15, 16 & 17

i can't believe i've almost caught up!
i guess that's what happens when you get a dedicated few hours to work on it
- AND you've finished your job contract and have lots of spare time even though it's the week before Christmas!

i'm enjoying using these Week in the Life wooden numbers
i cut down one of the 6x8 papers for the 3x8 pp


i also found one random 3x8 'morning, afternoon and evening' insert' so put that to good use on a very busy/social day i had last week


i love these layered templates. they're so versatile

basically i had my work Christmas lunch, a girls' night and boxing class drinks all in one day, and i wanted to capture a little from each event.



i loved that i could use this digi stamp and add the white stickers

i've done it before, but here's a phonetic pronouciation of the POHUTUKAWA, also known as the New Zealand Christmas Tree

PO-WHO-TOO-KAWA

if they bloom early, it means we're in for a long warm summer

fingers crossed!!!

the end of the week was also the last day of my 3 month contract at the RACP
i certainly didn't expect flowers, let alone brownie (not pictured on account of the fact that we ate it all...) and a card that contained many heartfelt sentiments.

'

my thoughts on leaving this particular contract made up part of today's story

one of the fun initiatives at the RACP during December is the 'POD' decorating contest.
the theme this year being '2016 the year that was'

for obvious reasons, Prince featured a lot, and the gals on the 5th floor went ALL.OUT.

it was another stunning afternoon, so al fresco cocktails and tapas were DEF on the menu.

the photobombing grandpa was NOT lol


i've had this glittery gold frame sticker for AGES (i think it's heidi swapp) and saw an idea on the DD Facebook page that gave me the inspiration to use it


i hadn't used this font before ('always in my heart'), and it did this weird cursor placement thing when i typed. as a result of that, i SOMEHOW ended up with an unwanted apostrophe.
as a grammar nazi this bothers me intensely, but not enough to trash the whole page.


on this day i also wrote about how i have wrapped Christmas presents in shoe boxes for the past 20 years, and how i didn't have any this year because i threw my surplus out last year thinking we'd be moving house during the year and they'd be one less thing to throw out.

AH WELL....

so i had to go forage at a couple of my local shoe stores.
this is the BEFORE photo btw...


saturday night was a catch up with friends who have/are celebrating december birthdays

i love this digi stamp.
