Summer/Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere

Post by Quill Me on 2011-11-10, 23:27

If anyone would like to share some ideas for seasonal quilling, go ahead.
I will start by saying I have done in the past a kangaroo with a Santa hat on, some gum blossom and a candle, and grevillia and a candle for Aussie themed Christmas cards.
I think I did an ornament card with wattle trim also.

To much has gone on the last 2 months, to even think about the seasonal or Holidays, my mind is blank, but would love to see what others may be doing!

That must be for some of us Europeans to experience Christmas in Australia, what do you tell the children how Santa comes to them?????. I am always a little lost for ideas for Christmas, I have not done much Christmas Quilling cards, but it would not hurt me to have a good try. Love to see some of your quilling Bronwyn

In my day Santa still came down the chimney but with no chimneys these days I think Santa comes in the door!
We do have a song about kangroos pulling the sleigh but I think the traditional reindeers will not lose their role.
Of course Santa arrives here before most other countries due to our time zone. Wink

Toye, I have often thought I should do an angel in metallic paper but have not got around to it yet.
Yours is fabulous!

hi Bronwyn, thank you for your kind words. The angel was not done with metallic paper but with paper with a silver edging. If ”creative quilling” does not have it. Here is a web that has very good quality and a lots to choose from. “www.quilling.com”.But I must state that the post cost more than the material, but I had to have it for my chess figures 5mm. There is another way to get the same affect by using a silver ink pad and after making your object just tip the edges into the pad. But I think by using metallic paper would be looking fantastic, and I think that is a good idea of yours.

Well done on your first angel Toye! Great job! I'd hang it on my Christmas tree.

To answer your question, we have a chimney in our house so santa comes down the chimney but I have recently had the discussion with my 5 year old and I told him that if you don't have a chimney then Santa comes in through the door or window...Santa can always find a way in! We are actually going camping this Christmas in a town called Port Maquarie (with three little boys!! yikes ) on the north coast of NSW as my brother and his family live there and I told the boys we will leave santa a note so that he knows where to find us. lol!

Have a great day Ladies.

I am very happy to read that Santa always finds a way to get to us. For this year I will be going to Jura with my partner, he has a little house up in the mountains; it is so peaceful and to hear the little church bells ring and midnight wooow it so romantic with all the snow around. His grandchildren will just visit us for the day. So I guess I just will have to leave a note to let Santa know where I am. Christmas is really for the children, I love to see their little faces light up with joy as they open their presents. So thank you for letting me know how Santa gets to all the children in the world. bounce line
