Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I very much enjoyed giving all my colourful wrapped gifts to family and friends and going through my new collection of Japanese books (gifts from hubby and family). Ate a yummy roast for lunch and knitted bows while watching classic Rankin Bass Christmas movies.

I taught myself how to knit using You tube videos.
For my first knitted project I made these knitted bows. There are so many things I want to do with them; use as present toppers, make a headband and even put them on my shoes!

My lounge room was a colour blast of paper, tape, ribbon, tissue and stickers when I spent last weekend doing my Christmas gift wrapping. I find myself buying extra gifts for loved ones just so I can have fun wrapping them up! Like my tree and decorations, this year I have gone non-traditional and using all colours to decorate and wrap my gifts in. I will be able to use my left over paper all year round too!

My little hoard from Sydney's Finders Keepers, that I went to last Friday night. Faves of the night included meeting Dawn Tan and seeing her Handmade Love watercolour prints and products, Emily Green's colourful geometric jewellery, Etsy Australia, lomo camera's and zines, zakka from Storybook Rabbit (I got this little trinket box for my work Kris Kringle) and meeting and chatting to the lovely Linsey the creator of Seam magazine.

Here it is! My White Christmas tree decorated with my self-made and designed cute-pop Xmas decorations. I have been making a pom pom and mt tape bunting to wrap around it and have yet to add my xmas gifts under the tree.

Cute-pop Xmas Decorations

Having been one who usually likes to keep to the xmas colour tradition of green and red, this year I wanted to do something a bit different and more -fun! For my Christmas tree this year it's all about colour and cheer - so I hand and digitally made my own cute-pop character and collage xmas decorations out of paper.
