33 more sleeps
Time to start making the list and working on the presents. My present box has been sorted out and just a few more things to make.
In the meantime I couldn't resist joining the ATC swap for "Altered Santas" Most of the participants live in the Northern Hemisphere so I hope they appreciate my take on Santa.
The surf was printed, the Surfing Santas I printed and then cut out then attached with a sticky dot. The Ho Ho Ho are not to clear in the colour but are red green gold. These were attached with tiny strips of the sticky dots. Quite a feat cutting and removing the back without getting into a mess.
But that was last night's craft whilst watching The Croker Island Exodus. I can't really explain this film but it was very moving and happened when Japan bombed Darwin, it just goes to show the strength of women. I believe that was the only time Australia has been under attack of war. Read about it here http://sff.org.au/public/films/program/films-a-z/croker-island-exodus/
How fortunate I am to have been born where and when I was, have the choice of where I live and not know the horrors of war.
