Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Good Morning! How are you? So the final week of school starts today - my word - soon my little chipmunks will be filling my days again! Can't wait!!!!

Yesterday we had a very busy day - we moved all the stuff back into the living room - its now decorated fully! We also got the Christmas tree - trimmed it - and finished off the teacher gifts - thats what I want to share with you today!!!


So the first job was melting chocolate and pouring it into moulds and leaving it to set - once set two of these chocs and two thorntons chocs were added to a small bag.


Next I got out a pre prepared (by me)  house complete with tree, snow and wreath and added the chocs through the back of the rook.


Next we had a team effort - I added the cellophane, Penny tied the bows and Lucy added the handmade tags.


Here's a finished one ...


And here's a stack of them - 14 in all! Everybody from the head teacher to classroom assistants, secretary and cookie will get one! I do hope they like them!!!

Thought you might like to see our tree too:


Its a bit smaller than usual but I had to put it up so it had to be manageable.


It didn't take our Mischief long to investigate and give her seal of approval.

I hope if you weren't feeling festive you are now!!!

Big hugs!!

Rachel xx

  5. Fantastic gifts Rachel, I love those little houses and all of the details. I'm playing catch up, had a great week away then a week laid up with a cough/cold virus. I'm just getting back to normal. I love the cards you've made in the 2/3 previous posts that I've missed.
