Christmas @ Chronically Creative 2011


 This is just a post full of pictures from over the Christmas weekend. I hope you enjoy them!


Our Christmas tree! This tree is so old, I remember decorating it when I was twelve! You can see straight through it now. We definitely need a new tree, and decorations for that matter. Ah well, it does the job. Mamma Bear did a lovely job decorating the tree.


This is one of the presents that I wrapped. Wrapping presents is my favourite part of Christmas- an excuse to go over the top with ribbon, pretty paper, cute tags and candy canes? Heck, yes!


Our Christmas lunch table. We didn't bother with decorating it this year, it's not very practical when there is so many of us... yes, we had even more people than the table could fit (we add extra chairs at the corners too) so it was squishy enough without all the table decoration crap.


My expedit bookcase is finally all set up. I'm SO excited about this. I couldn't resist decorating it with some tinsel. It had to be pink and purple, of course!


Papa Bear made us a roast chicken dinner for Christmas Eve. Delicious much?


 And what's a Christmas tree without any pretty lights!


I made some Christmas chocolate butternut snap tartlets to wrap up and give as gifts. How stinkin' cute are they? I am so thrilled with how they turned out! They tasted pretty darn great too. I wrapped them up in pretty cellophane with matching ribbon, but I forgot to take a photo in my brain fogged state after spending hours on them (I made heaps). Darn it.


Pretty presents ♥


 Our gorgeous Christmas cups.


Guess who ate most of that fruit platter? Don't put a fruit platter in front of someone who has a fruit addiction. Just sayin'


Me and Mamma Bear ♥ ( I should have just moved the chair instead of leaning awkwardly. Awkward. My face is getting fuller and I'm now forming a double chin thanks to good ole Prednisolone.... I fear I'll morph into a pudding soon... noooooooooo!)


Caramel cheesecake, lemon meringue pie and pavlova from the Cheesecake Shop. I plan on attempting pavlova one of these days, although, I doubt it will turn out anywhere near as amazing.


What I wore.


My Christmas cupcakes turned out a treat! I'm glad because they have stolen all my energy.

I was blessed with some ace pressies! I mainly got cupcake stuff. Yay! I got heaps of baking books and the cutest cupcake apron! Sweet Sister got me a cupcake mug which I love and I even got a massaging foot spa. Oh yeah!

As much as I love Christmas, I am so glad it's over... I'm trashed y'all!

I hope you all had the most wonderful Christmas and I hope you enjoyed all the crafty Christmas posts this year. Here's a recap of all the crafts I posted in case you missed any or wanted to re-visit any:
