Have a good one!

So, it's Christmas Eve and I am just about to sit down and watch the Carols and do a bit of present wrapping, while trying not to cry to much. ( The carols always make me cry, a goodwill and joy overload maybe.)

I really hope you all have a lovely Christmas and festive season, my good wishes go out to you all dear readers, have a very merry and bright day!  Thank you so much for visiting my little patch of cyberspace in 2014, I so appreciate all the lovely comments and support you all provide, you guys really are awesome!  
This holidays I will be enjoying time with my family, and I hope you all get to spend some time with special people over the holiday period too, I really think that's one of the most important thing for us humans, feeling connected, feeling loved, feeling wanted and special, and if we can make someone feel that way I think that's a great thing! 
(I guess this bloggy internet community is just a great big extension of that! :))

I will be taking a little break from this space, I think a break from computer stuff will be quite refreshing, plus I have lots of hooky ideas to get out of my head!  A couple of weeks of planning and getting organised for the new year will get me all set up for a great 2015, I have some ideas that I wanted to try out on the blog this year but didn't get to them, so I hope I can get them off the ground in 2015!

Here are some cheery photos of my Christmas tree thingy this year, 
I am calling it our 'Christmas Cloud', it is definitely not a traditional tree, but I like it and there are presents under it too! 
I think it is well suited to our warm, sunny, Summer Christmas, kind of airy and bright, and it revolves in the breeze.  (Sorry for the excessive amount of photos, I was trying to capture the way it changed as it moved in the air. )

 All you Northern Hemisphere peeps, I hope you are warm and cosy, we will be trying to stay cool here in Melbourne, although the weather is looking lovely and mild for tomorrow, so it should be good for the big roast and pudding.  

Okay, that's enough waffling, Merry Christmas everyone!

Talk soon! 
Big love to you all!

    At last, this morning, we have a litlle snow in Lorraine (France)... not enough to make a snowman but it seems to be Xmas time !!!

    Thanks a lot for all your lovely and nicy ideas all along this year, your Xmas baubles are so nice that I had made them too.

  19. Very pretty, unique and very appropriate for our Aussie climate and creative characteristics! I thought you might like a little alliteration for Christmas! On Christmas Day and Boxing Day I turned off my phone and had a break from computers, internetting and media for a peaceful Christmas. Wishing you a restful and fun time away and look forward to when you return with new ideas to colour our world. xx

  20. Dear Julie,

    Your Christmasclouds represents everything you are: warm, colourful, friendly, creative, volatile. It is one of the most prettiest "Weihnachtsscmuck"-things I have seen these days. (you really inspired me, I guess I will start to crochet all these thingies and let's hope they will be ready within 11 months or so)

    Have a very nice Christmas period and take all the time you need to get yourself organized, I cannot wait for all your new ideas to burst out.

    Must say I have copied you a few tiimes. You can have a peek


    Have a very good restful time!
