The last workshop of the year .......

Happy Tuesday .......

Oh well ..... I think the festive spirit is finally kicking in.  I maybe a little on the early side even for me but ...... I've just put the first of the Christmas decorations up.  Ho! Ho! Ho!
We're having a family get together this evening so I thought it might be nice to have a few sparkling lights .....

Speaking of Christmas, it was the last workshop of the year at the weekend. It was Christmas sweaters, mince pies and chocolates, and Mr Buble playing in the background ...... yes you've guessed it, it was the Christmas one!

This year's project was a pretty 3D MDF Sledge.
A beautiful decoration for the window maybe, a centrepiece for the festive table to hold a Christmas candle, or even something to hang on the wall.

Just look at the finished results .......

Here's a few close ups ......

They were all painted with acrylic paints, with a little bit of rubber stamping here and there

And then decorated with lots of festive greenery, sparkle and snow

Berries, baubles and pine cones .......

We even had a festive robin ......

It was a nice way to end the workshop year, although it's not our last get together of 2019, we have our little Christmas party to come yet.  I need to go hunting for a Secret Santa gift now!

Speaking of parties we had a great one on Saturday night. 
Lauren had arranged a secret party for her other half, Robbie, to celebrate his BIG birthday!

Hubby and I had arranged dinner for them at our favourite place ..... although that did mean that we had to go somewhere else (it was OK for Dad to foot the bill, we just couldn't be there!) ...... it was his birthday I suppose!!
Then it was on to the Bath & Bottle in town where everyone was waiting for the birthday boy to arrive ...... cocktails all round!

Happy Birthday Robbie ...... old enough now to know better, but still young enough to get away with it!

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your day.
I suppose I'd better get tonights dinner on, they'll all be here soon ........ it's not going to cook itself!!

Cheerio until next time .......
