At 9.09am (AEST) this morning the sun was at the furtherest point from my little space on earth, the Winter Solstice - or as my mum would say "the shortest day of the year". In celebration of this auspicious occasion, and just because we can think of any excuse, Sebastien and I decided to invite some of his friends over yesterday afternoon for a Winter Solstice Crafternoon of shrinky-dink fun! Shrinking plastic is super-fun, and the mums were TOTALLY into it too! Snowflakes, snowmen, winter trees, rockets, love hearts - and the cutest little BFF badges and necklaces for special little friends.
Then I was lucky enough to have an invitation to another Winter Solstice event, a swap party with my crafty mates....this time preserves. Look at my haul!
...and look at the party favours I got from our host Kuka. Can you guess what I'm going to indulge in on this cold, windy, winter, shortest day of the year?
