A Round Tuit 339

Hello again and Happy Monday!
I'm currently enjoying the long summer holidays with my girls here in Cairns, and also the big countdown to Christmas! 
Here's what our Cairns Christmas Tree looks like down on the esplanade water front!  I love how tropical it looks surrounded by all those palm trees!
The whole area looks so pretty at night all lit up!

 In true Christmas excess mode we have not just one but 4 advent calendars on the go in our house!!  
All handmade - one by my daughter with pictures, one made by me years ago which has boxes for a little chocolate each day, another travel advent book that I made a couple of weeks ago which has Christmas jokes in and finally a maths one - which we did last year and they enjoyed so much we've done it again - solving problems each morning to unlock the chocolate in the box!!

I also made a few more upcycled reusable Christmas cards last week and packaged them up with the Christmas presents to be posted off to family members!

So what have you all been up to this week?  Let's get this party started and find out!


Welcome to this week's linky party. A place where you can link up your posts and creations, and be inspired by others.

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
First of all, a neat idea for a Christmas Tree Shaped Bulletin Board for pinning your Christmas cards to from Jennifer Perkins.

Finally, this neat little DIY Art Caddy Tutorial from Gluesticks.

For those featured, feel free to grab a 'featured on' button here.
Creating my way to Success
Now it's your turn:
Link up your own projects - old or new - no rules - just share your creativity and inspiration!
I'd love if you grabbed the button - then you can have your very own Round Tuit!
And of course we all love visitors and comments so do visit some of the other links!
By linking up here you're giving me permission to use photos from your post in features here on my blog.
I will feature my favourites on this post and my Saturday Spotlight feature post next week.

And I'll also pin each feature to the Round Tuit Pinterest Board.
