Merry Christmas!

Hi there!

Santa came early this year to the desert, and wow, did he bring us an unexpected gift!

Air tickets to South-Africa! We are leaving on Tuesday next week, and we will be back on the 31st of December! Our first Christmas home in 4 years time!
Right now we are waiting for our daughter to arrive from Switzerland, and tomorrow the preparations to fly home will begin. This means that this will be my last blog post this year, and I thought it would be good to end it with a few more Christmas sentiments!
Seven of them... bringing me to a total of 400 sentiments posted in little more than a year!
A great way to end the year!

With this I want to thank each and every one for all the kind comments you left during the year... I really appreciate that, and I do love to see what you create with my sentiments!

*** Edited to add...

I had an enquiry ... to use the sentiments all you have to do is click on the image... right click and save to your computer. Images may be resized and recolored as you wish!

I hope that will help the anonymous question!

Have fun!

... And of course, I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS...

Hugs and kisses

Great news. It seems Santa was paying attention on who was really good this year. I hope you'll have a beautiful Christmas at home with your family.

Thanks a lot for all the beautiful sentiments. Big number ;-)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hugs from Slovenia, Keti

Oh Hannelie how wonderful, I am in Germany at the moment with my son and family.. it is so nice to be here, but the time is going so quickly. Our daughter flew back to the U.K. today, but my granddaughter and hubby and myself don't go back until the 30th December.
I know you will be having a fabulous time with family and friends, catching up is so lovely!...
Wishing you and your family a fabulous Christmas and wishing you everything good for the New Year:)
Biggest of hugs,
