Hello Monday

A cold weekend spent mainly at home, making a tentative start on the Christmas cheer.

Frosty starts, tea making, candle light and gingerbread village making.

I am happy to report (and frankly feeling quite smug about the fact) that I didn't resort to using superglue on the gingerbread village.  I think this is the first year that's happened and it feels like a really big win!

Today we're saying:

Hello to more chilly weather
Hello to a trip to London
Hello to a lot of baking for various Christmas events
Hello to catching up with family and friends
Hello to a bit of Christmas decorating and crafting
Hello to a bit more planning and dreaming - got to make the most of this creative spurt I'm having. :)

How about you?  How was your weekend and what are you saying hello to?

Linking up with Lisa Leonard.


  1. Hello to trying to take some Christmas type photos in bad light. I admire you for putting together a Gingerbread House only did it once never again....I am going to Bath to check out photo ops have a great week...

  2. Hello to snow here! I like your table with the candle and well done for the Gingerbread House. It's looking good!

  3. Awwwww, so sweet! Love your shots and hope you'll share more pics of that lovely Gingerbread House.
    Hello to snow here, just 4-5 cm.

  4. I am ashamed to admit to never buiding a gingerbread house - even when my kids were small! Yours is quite lovely - especially in abstaining from use of any superglue :) As for me, I just upgraded to CS6 - so will be spending the week (and more) learning what's new in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Hopefully, that exploration will spark something new.

  5. Weekend here was cold and gloomy too. :-(
    Love this mosaic, especially your gingerbread village.

  6. Congratulations on not needing super glue this year!! That IS a big win. My icing was always a struggle to get thick enough to work. Love the shot of the candle!
