Making Your Own Christmas Tree

I don't know about you but I like to have more than one Christmas tree in my house. The husband however isn't so keen, so I've been making smaller cardboard versions to pop around the house instead. They are so simple to make and of course you can paint them whatever colour you like and decorate them as you please.

You will need :

2 Pieces Of Cardboard (the bigger the cardboard, the bigger the tree)
Scissors
Paint
Christmas Decorations

1. On the first piece of cardboard draw a Christmas tree with four branches on either side, making sure to leave the end of each branch pointing upwards so that the decorations won't fall off when hung on them.

2. Cut the first tree out.

Warm Chicken Salad Recipe

I love food and it is true that some organic food manages to taste better than normal foods. Did you know that Aldi actually stock a few organic and special foods? I actually didn't but I was recently sent vouchers so that I could try out their range and come up with a yummy dish in the process. Below is my recipe for a warm chicken salad.

Wanderlust Pink Lining Bag Review

Changing bags, every parent needs one but with so many on the market these days it's hard to decide on one suitable. I had the pleasure last year of reviewing the Pink Lining Yummy Mummy bag and I had nothing but good words to say about it, so when I was given the oppurtunity to review their Wanderlust bag recently I was expecting good things, I just didn't know how good….

Superphoto Review

I've mentioned previously that I take an awful lot of photos, all of which are currently stored on my phone. The trouble is, I never get around to getting them printed out but I do like to have the chance to sit and look through them.

I was asked in August whether I'd like to review a photobook from Superphoto. I was grateful for the opportunity and was already thinking about which photos I could include.

The photobook which I was asked to review was their landscape 20 x 15 cm worth £9.99

My Own Little Angels

I had one of those proud mummy moments last week when my 4 year old and my 6, almost 7 year old took part in their school's nativity play.

Gracie along with her reception class mates was a little sparkly snowflake.

Read With Me #50

Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. I have to admit even I haven't had much time to read this month. December seems to be the month where the whole family gets busy!!

read with me
However I have managed to fit in a couple of really good books.

The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon. Honestly this womans writing is superb. This wasn't a typical romance as it had a paranormal element to it but it didn't make it any less brilliant.

Rules of Protection by Alison Bliss. Romance and drama mixed in with a good amount of humour and wit. This book had me laughing out loud whilst feeling quite emotional.

and

Jag by Stevie J Cole. This book was dark, raw and gritty. Yes there is a relationship entailed but the story was so much more. Showing a more real side of addiction, no sugar coating.

Talking International Book Giving Day

I'm already thinking into the future and I have a date for your diary for next year. The 14th of February next year isn't just Valentines day, oh no, it is also going to be International Book Giving day.

Books are so important and the hope on this day is to encourage as many children to get reading as possible.

And to help encourage them, illustrator Chris Haughton has designed a unique and vibrant poster, made to capture everyones attention.
