Want to win some great stuff?

Are you starting to feel the Christmas panic? You check your calendar and realise Friday is actually a December date! I come across so many great things in my journey through the World Wide Web, well mostly Facebook, but world wide web sounds much more worldly and investigative!

I’m sharing a few good ideas a day for gifts that will give you “thats awesome” smiley faces

not “gee thanks you really really shouldn’t have” smiley face.

PLEASE share these and give these businesses some love – they are small businesses trying to survive in the big world of retailing and they are doing some great things! I’m not getting anything for promoting these guys – I just found them and love them!

Today we meet

Lauren Skye Studio / Say it With Sweetness / Puzzle Culture/ Sticker Planet

And as a thank you for sharing, everyone who shares the posts goes into a draw to win a hamper of some of these goodies for themselves!



I have just ordered these personalised cushions for my kids for Christmas – they are so cute a great gift idea particularly for slightly older kids who have watched The Block and are into decorating their own spaces!

She also does the most gorgeous linen indoor cushions and fabo outdoor cushions that will jazz up your home for a lot less than a renovation! There are also great wall prints under $40.

And there is Afterpay! Decorate now….pay later!

Personalised items need to be ordered this week for Christmas.




Now I know this smart cookie – she is a beautiful talented lady who makes the most amazing cookie cutters – and she has also done all of my kids birthday cakes which for those of you who have seen them, know how spectacular they are!

For Christmas, she has made little cookie sets – where you can make, bake and decorate. Great to keep the kids busy and a wonderful gift idea for visitors or the neighbour’s kids who you want to buy a small gift for. Or a lovely homemade gift they can give someone special.

For $14.95, they will give your kids so much festive joy and buy you at least an hour to do all the other things on your Christmas to do list!

Each kit contains:

~ 1 x 3.5″/8.9cm cutter (choice of tree or bauble)

~ 1 x pouch red or green pre-made Chefmaster royal icing mix

~ 60g Say it with Sweetness custom Christmas sprinkle mix

~ 4 x packaging bags and gift tags

~ 1 x kids apron (colour options available)

~ Sugar Cookie recipe card (used with permission of Sweet Sugarbelle)

All kits are packaged in a red carry bag embellished with a Christmas image.
