Leaving a Christmas Mark With Stamptastic!

As you may remember we are Stamptastic Ambassadors and are trilled to have had the chance to try the Christmas stamps available at Stamptastic! 
Greetings stamps, address stamps, fun Christmas stamps and Christmas Wishes stamps, we chose from a selection of those available and coloured ink pads too.
We chose a classic address stamp (not pictured) which costs £15. There are two address stamp designs available - classic and vintage.

Also a large personalised Christmas Stamp with image. I ordered  red ink for this. I've been trying to perfect using this on the Christmas cards I've yet to finish! The large Christmas stamp is £30 and 105mm x 75mm in size.
As you can see I need a little more practise yet!

We also got a fun Christmas tree stamp, there are 5 fun designs in total to choose from. These are £15 and I've been using ours to personalise present labels and tags for the monkeys teachers gifts. 
I ordered violet ink for the smaller address and fun Christmas stamps. The small coloured ink pads are £3.50 each. There are five colours to choose from - violet, blue, red, green and black.
The large coloured ink pad for the large stamp is £8 and is available in four colours - red, blue, green and black.
I'm really looking forward to using these stamps on our cards and presents this year and of course they should be good for next year and beyond too. The ink can always be replaced if we fancy a different colour next year. I'm loving the wooden handle on the large stamp which will last the test of time. 

For obvious reasons I've not photographed the address stamp but shall be posting our cards with the address on. I think it makes a nice touch, don't you!  

The ink for these Christmas stamps is intended for use on paper only. It won't withstand the wash like the other Stamptastic ink.

A great investment for use year after year and definitely time saving. Get your Christmas Stamptastic order in now! 



It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas!

I know I know, it's still November but I'm especially excited about Christmas this year and am well on the way to being very organised and ready! 

Most of the presents are bought but still need to be wrapped. I used to love the wrapping but now since having the monkeys and getting them lots of small stocking gifts I do find it a bit tedious. I shall be doing it bit by bit! 

We've booked to eat out on Christmas Day this year. I'm so looking forward to not doing the food shop a few days before the big day......the rush and stampede for the fresh foods always stresses me.
Gosh I sound like a right bah humbug don't I! I do really love Christmas honestly.

We've even booked a family trip to see Santa on Christmas Eve and we're having breakfast with the man himself too. So we're pretty ready.......and looking forward to it!

This year we have a 6ft real tree being delivered from Pines and Needles on December the 1st. I can't wait! The monkeys are getting mini trees too. Our Nordman Fir tree is non drop, child friendly, for indoor use and not too spiky to touch. It sounds perfect for us! 
The tree is being delivered via courier all ready for it's Christmas with us. I'm not sure which colour theme I'm going with yet this year as tend to alternate between red and gold and a mix of everything. We'll see but I've been buying red so maybe the decision is already made.
Last years artificial tree
Some of the Christmas decs I've bought so far
Pines and Needles trees are sustainably grown. They are members of the British Christmas Tree Growers Association, and do their utmost to positively contribute to the wider community through their working practises, environmental responsibility, and charitable partnerships. They have 20 stores in and around London and the South of England where you can go and choose your own tree but like us if you are too far away they deliver too. If the tree you've ordered arrives and you don't like it, you can return it for another! No quibble.
I have a 10% discount on tree orders (over £50) to share with my readers (plus free mistletoe). Just use the code MONKEY during checkout. 
Pines and Needles are running some great competitions on their social media channels to win some fab prizes, starting on Monday 23rd November with Elfie (selfie) where you can win a tree on them for next Christmas.
We'll be posting a review of our tree once it's here, up and decorated. Please do pop back and take a look! Happy Christmas tree shopping!


Week 47 - Project 365

Day 319. Loving this clothing for the monkeys and I from FG4 fashion sent for review.
Day 320. A sleeping child photo after work (as I forgot to get a pic!)
Day 321. My weekly coffee date with friends and we treated ourselves to a fab hot chocolate each!
Day 322. Well to start the day there was some sunshine and blue sky! It didn't last though!
Day 323. A mid afternoon cuppa has become a bit of a habit. It has to be in a bone china cup too. This time very late due to travelling home from a family funeral in Surrey.
Day 324. Christmas shopping with the MIL and we popped into Hamleys. Little monkey would have loved this bus display.
Day 325. My new poinsettia (as I finally killed the old one off after a few years).

This week has been another featuring a bad back again, a funeral and my beloved past time of shopping, so a mix of good and bad! We're not liking this cold snap (we've been spoilt by the mild weather until now). Hope your week has been good?
