Christmas Ornament Swap 2018

I love Christmas, it’s such a festive time of year. A time for creating lovely gifts, decorations, spending time with family and preparing for Christmas day. Can you believe December is around the corner, just a few weeks to go!

The theme for this swap is Christmas ornaments, it can be an ornament for a tree or anything with a Christmas theme. You can send off one item or a few and please do contact your swap partner and get to know them. If you’d like to include a few extra items, feel free to do so 🙂

If you would like to take part in this swap, this is what you need to do, leave a comment in this post and please email your:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Blog link if you have one

to my email address, lindadawkins@mweb.co.za and I will pair you with a swap partner.

This is an international swap so wherever you are, you can join:) Please feel free to add this photo above to your sidebar of your blog with this page link.

Please, if you decide that you no longer want to take part, just send me an email so that I can pair your partner with someone else. If you would like to offer to be a swap angel (someone who will send out one extra swap item to anyone who has not received their swap for whatever reason) just add that to your email you send to me.

The swap items need to be sent out by the end of November.

October Already?!

Hello! Can you believe it’s October already? The year has flown by… one day seems to flow into the next and before we know it, it’ll be Christmas!

So much has been happening since I last wrote here, our children are growing up into young adults, Jen is 21 now, Erin 19, Caid 17 and our little one Kye is 12 🙂 I miss those days when they were all still so small and we’d pile into the car and go on adventures together.

They have grown into the most amazing people and we still have adventures, sometimes. I really do try to be present each day to appreciate this time I have with them. I remember, not long ago, a mom was writing about her child going off to university and how we should appreciate and ‘be’ in the moment with our children, as time is fleeting and just races by, often without us noticing.

Here we are, my girls have gone off to university already but they still live at home as their uni is close, so I’m grateful for that.

Well, as October marches on, some news from my side of the world:

Rich and I have been riding again. I really need to do this more often!

Bailey and Sandy are such wonderful pets. Bailey keeps Sandy young at heart and seems to also have kept Sandy’s epilepsy at bay for now. She’s much more active with Bailey around and I think this helps.

Last month was my birthday month, Rich was overseas and sent me this lovely bouquet of flowers 🙂

My little shadow, Delilah, she loves following me when I go to feed the chickens.

We also had a magnificent eclipse recently. It was freezing outside but so worth it!

Caid and Kye painted Proteas aren’t they gorgeous?


We still have our beautiful feathered girls and they gift us with the best eggs, daily ♥

Christmas Ornament Swap:

Is anyone interested in participating in a Christmas Ornament Swap?

Susan wrote to me to ask if there would be one this year.

If you are keen, please post in the comments and I will write a post about it if we have enough people 🙂

Enjoy the rest of your week ♥

Creative Friday

Cederberg 2014

There was great excitement yesterday when we said goodbye to all the Scouts leaving for the Cederberg Adventure. Our two girls are there and will be gone for 12 days. There is no signal so we won’t have any contact with them, they are going to hike for 10 days with their group, up and down various mountains and work on bases, they will have to navigate with a GPS and carry their own food. It’s such an amazing experience and they’re going to LOVE it!! Many in the group are going back for their third time.

I miss them SO much already and can’t wait for them to come home but this wonderful journey is something they will carry in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
