Winter solstice - my creative space


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?

  1. I was just wondering when the solstice is, I love the moment it tips and we start working back the other way :-) Love your shrinky dinks and solstice gifts!

  2. The shrinky dinks look like loads of fun. I am pretty excited about the winter solstice too, and our days starting to get longer again. We're only three weeks into winter and I am looking forward to spring!

  3. This is so cool!! Winter Solstice - boy did we feel that in Canberra last night, brrrr. What a fun way to celebrate it. My husband grew up in Summer Hill NSW & they go bonkers for the Summer Solstice. Love Posie

  4. what a great day. by the looks of things - those preserves look pretty amazing!

  5. Looks lovely.
    We had a very cold solstice celebration at school with soup, stories, lantern walk and a very, very muddy spiral walk. Much fun was had to celebrate leaving the darkness and going toward the light.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I especially love it when I get comments. Have a great day, suzy xoxo
