Skywalk, OPAM and Christmas

I had a very busy finish to the year in my little school bookshop. We had Orientation Day for the 2012 Year 8s. After they have had the day getting used to their new and very big High School, they have the opportunity to buy uniforms and book packs. This year more people bought the book pack than in previous years. I had to get my helpers to quickly make up more packs. The rest of the last week had me doing a stocktake, before I could finally close up for the year.

I've been touring blogland and it seems most of us have had a busy time of it, getting ready for Christmas. DH and I took some time out to walk the Skywalk at Mt Tamborine. The first part is a walkway through the tree tops and then a return via a ground level pathway.

This photo is DH on a high counter-levered platform over the creek. Next time I must remember to take my binoculars as there were many birds I could not quite see.

On the craft front, I finished this little wall hanging. It's by Anni Downs and called 'Peaceful Garden Wall Hanging'. It was one of the 2011 GDITC projects. Now all I have to complete before next year's GDITC is the felt wool purse and the Songbird Jewel box.

I made these brooches for the ladies in our old Primary School mums group. I tried out a label - Lucy May's Accessories - for an idea I have for 2012. I won't say more just now, in case I get slack again and don't follow through.

And lastly but certainly not least, on this Christmas Eve I would like to wish everyone a very

and a
May all your 2012 wishes come true.

The wall hanging is gorgeous; a real credit to you!
I'd never heard of a Skywalk at Tamborine...sounds like a good excuse to explore that area again.
