It's starting to look a lot like Christmas!

It's been a long time since my last post but like everyone, the lead up to the "big day" next week has taken time. For those who, like me, work 2 jobs, it's always a relief when you get to the point to say "all done!". I'm almost at that point now, now if only I can get my kitchen and lounge room back from paint tins, fabric scraps, paper cut offs etc. I thought I'd give you a little look into what making an eco-friendly knife block looks like in my little 1 bedroom unit near the beach in Sydney. Needless to say, until I pack away and clean up, no Christmas truffles will be made! Who else has a kitchen/lounge/dining room/bedroom that takes on a similar transformation??

Next on my list of things to do:
1. print eco-friendly Christmas paper (will blog a tutorial on this per the gorgeous April's request from A Thoughtful Life)
2. make coconut christmas truffles (stay tuned for the recipe - these are gorgeous and easy to make)
3. Wrap presents and place under the pear tree (see above) so it actually starts to feel like Christmas
4. Buy some sparkling Christmas lights for said pear tree...and some other "sparkling" to drink on Christmas Eve under the pear tree.

Happy to see that you have found a eco-solution for the knife blocks. Looking forward to your truffles recipe. I remember how delicious they were from last year. Yum!
