Christmas Confession

Most people have holiday rituals that they do every year (omg, is she blogging about sacrificing goats again?). For some, it's Black Friday, for others it's a certain movie that they watch every year, complete with a cup of hot chocolate and some Christmas cookies. I, too, have a ritual that I do every holiday season, several times during this time of year, that I never thought was bizarre... until this year. Now that my kids are older, and with the introduction of Z this year, I seem…

Gift Guide for the Impossible to Buy For

Where do you start with these folks? They already have everything, they don’t want anything, they’re difficult and picky… We have some in our family too. What to do? Ignoring them is not a sensible option, whether the “impossible” person in question is the mother-in-law or the boss. So, then, we thought that these types should probably be receiving virtual gifts. No, not a virtual Facebook cupcake, but rather something that…

Where the Heck is the Tape?

I am the worst wrapper in the history of present wrapping. I always start out with such good intentions. I'm going to cut my lines straight and even. I'm going to line the corners up and crease my folds. I'm going to use very little tape so that you can't even see it. I'm going to put ribbons and bows on every present. They are going to be beautiful.

These ideals last only until I lose the scissors the first time, which is to say, the first time I put them down. They're scissors.…

Christmas Ideas To Stay Stress Free

Christmas can be the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, but it can also be the Most Stressful Time of the Year. All that shopping, planning, decorating, baking and traveling can turn a lovely holiday season into an anxiety-filled nightmare.

I'm as guilty as the next perfectionist. I want everything to look, smell, and feel just as it did when I was growing up. And when it doesn't, it means I am a failure. I have failed to "do" Christmas well.

I can't tell you how many times I…

DIY Christmas Tree Photo Ornaments


Christmas is absolutely the most magical time of year, however in Australia, rather than sitting by a warm fire as the snow falls outside, waiting for Santa and his reindeer to arrive, we Aussies are at the beach, in our togs, eating pineapple and throwing another shrimp on the BBQ.

Oh, and…

Christmas Greed Pot: I'm The Kettle!


I just read a post suggesting that $300 was a suitable amount per child to spend on Christmas gifts, and after closing my mouth in disgust, have to question how the true meaning of Christmas has been replaced by a superficial need to transform our children into spoilt rotten Veruca Salt's!

And, while it's absolutely… Continue

Free Personalized Messages from Santa - Keep the Magic Alive :)

If you’re anything like me, you’re pushing the “Santa’s watching!!” line pretty hard these days. I know it’s not right to market Father Christmas as an Eye-In-The-Sky Tattler who punishes by withholding My Little Ponies and Cars, but the kids do seem to care about what he thinks, and it’s mighty hard to not exploit that…

There are moments when it’s most appropriate (and simple) to give a single but thoughtful gift to the family rather than to each individual member. Perhaps the gift is from one family to another, or it’s to say…

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than witnessing the extravagant window displays put up by the fancy schmancy retailers. I love this type of assault on my visual sense. Oh, where to look next……

Keeping Your Toddler Safe During the Holidays

Holiday decorations can be a tricky situation if you have little ones running around the house. Toddlers are so curious and excited (all the time) that it's important to keep them safe.

Last year, Maggie was just a little over a year old and loved getting herself into messes. I figured we would just not have a Christmas tree in order to keep her safe and my sanity… Continue
