Bag topper created in photoshop using this free digital scrapbooking kit from Two Peas In A Bucket.
I still have a couple of gifts to wrap to go under the tree but otherwise I am all finished for Christmas gift giving.

Here are some pics of the finished room:
Expedit unit from Ikea and storage tubs from Kmart.
Gorgeous tissue poms and wall stickers.
I have to thank the Big Guy for his tissue fluffing abilities as he did the blue and grey ones for me. I started with the small white one and wasn't very successful. He seems to have a knack for it!
A close up of the framed print
This is a close up of the frame print purchased from Imaginart - they also have an Etsy store. Being a square print I could not located a suitable frame in any of our local stores so I designed by own online at Frameshop and am was suprised at their quick delivery - I ordered frame on the Wednesday and it was delivered on Friday morning! You customise all the specifications of your frame, size and shape, frame colour, mat size and colour.
I am so happy with the all the different features of the room coming together and think it looks great.

Top shelf has this gorgeous decoration from a trip to World Disney World we took a couple of years ago:

This version is actually a placemat with 2 layers. The bottom layers display the numbers and you rotate the top layer accordingly. I have just blu-tacked it to the wall and each day take it down to change the number and re-tack to the wall. The Little Guy loves it and calls it 'pretty'!
This shelf is in our new dining area
displays a gorgeous Villeroy & Boch tealight candle holder (a gift from my boss many years ago), a cute wind-up wooden Santa sleigh and reindeer from My Wooden Toys (I can't see this particular toy on their site at the moment but they do have some adorable wooden nativity sets), a photo of the Little Guy and a lovely wooden Advent calendar purchased from Bed, Bath & Table last Christmas. The Little Guy is a bit young at the moment to use this but I look forward to future Christmases where I will be able to put some little notes about a Christmas related activity or event as well as chocolate inside each of the little boxes.
The Little Guy also has a Fisher Price Little People Nativity Set he loves to play with. I believe it is important for there to be some Christmas (or any other celebration) decorations he is allowed to play with rather then everything being out of bounds to him.
I also saw this cute version of a Advent calender at Infarrantly Creative blog:
How cute is it? What other great Christmas ideas have you seen?

Amazing what a little piece of ribbon can do - I think they look great. (And did you notice the text printed on the ribbon on the right?)
Lots to share at the moment - more storage for my crafting bits and pieces, Christmas decorating including Advent calendars and other little Christmas gifts I have been preparing.
Making a big effort to get blog posts up over the next couple of days so stay tuned!
