In the last couple of months I have needed friends to be there for me – just for a chat, to say hi, to make you realise that you’re not just talking to the kids all day. Harvest can be like that. My Maid of Honor came for a visit – first ever to Miling, and she twisted my arm to go on a long weekend with 3 other girls we grew up with. Some I have known for 30 years. They are all great women forging their own lives and I feel privileged to be joining them in January. Quite honestly I can’t wait.
Booking my flights this week made me realise that we need to make the most of our old friends that are still there for us as well as the ones that may have just arrived in our lives.
I hope you are lucky enough to have friends just like these girls.
Yesterday Mikala and I made enough Reindeer Noses for all the kids at our local school and the teachers. So we only had to make just over 30. It was simple for her to do to count out the Maltezers and 1 Jaffa into the bags. Then we jumped on to Pic Monkey and I let her help me make a topper for the bag. We were only doing what lots of other Mum’s ( and Dads) had done before. Today I added a To and From section on the back of the label and took my Children’s names off so that you could use them with your children, after being asked to by some readers. If you get a chance there are some that are just gorgeous over at Pinterest and there are many ideas for Christmas.
You can print on to card or paper and we used some little bags we had left over from the Craft Fair that we filled and stapled the labels to.
To print 6 at a time click on the link below. It is just set for A4 paper (or you could use card).
Love you to share a picture over on Facebook if you do make them.
