Hey folks...I know I have been not too great with my posting in the last week......Christmas has a way of gumming up the works........ya know???
BUT..........I give you 5 things I love this week:

1.) Wow. I love this one. Yusuke Oono's amazing laser cut book opens out to reveal a beautiful three-dimensional diorama. He is "expressing scenes from a story in a three-dimensional way using the pages of a book". It is amazing - enbiggen the photos below to be impressed!!!

(Thanks to spoon tamago for this one!)

2.) I made these Christmas cookies.....I realized this week that I REALLY am a terrible baker....thankfully these cookies make it idiot proof!!!!! Melted Snowmen...are delightful!!!

              - make any kind of cookies - then let them cool!!
              - melt a marshmallow in the microwave and drop it on the cookie (5 sec will do it)
              - use mini-cocolate chips for eyes, and a orange jimmy for a nose, and a hat!!!
                (do it while the mallow is gooey) I made my hats from a mini Reese peanut butter cup, and a 
                chocolate looney (also available at the Bulk Barn)
              - heat up royal icing (or buy tubes of pre-made from - guess where - the Bulk Barn!) and pour 
                over look like the melting body! 
              - add some buttons (chocolate chips) and two pretzel arms

You can make these super fancy if you are an accomplished baker/decorator - BUT I AM NOT!!
Here are someone else's:

Good for them!
Easy and fun baking for the whole family!!
3.)  Whilst we are in a Christmassy mood....I give you is a commercial......but I enjoyed it!
Did it make me want to get T-moblie??
Mission accomplished!!!!!

4.) is a great gift is a two parter......but totally great.
     Part one.......I make a personalized cover for my phone:
Gelaskins..........great ways to personalize your phone....for me....I got the stickers......of my artwork.....
and then applied them to my phone. You can get a hard case or a soft case OR the stickers.
I like the stickers because they cover the front and back of the phone!!
Now that might seem like enough of a gift......but for me....I am a CLUTZ.
I needed something to protect the sides and such. I went with this:

Look at this iPhone 5 case!!

This little guy was a LIFE SAVER......well....a phone-saver.....
It has great bumpers around the edges, an nice metal looking button covers! 
It doesn't have a plastic back cover, so I am able to see the splendour of my artwork! 
It is simple and effective. It really is a discreet and attractive way to protect my iPhone!
I got mine HERE! And I am thrilled with it!!
Go and check out MOBILE FUN.COM for great deals on iPhone cases of all kinds!
And they have more than just cases....they have lots of great techy stuff for EVERYONE on your Christmas list!!! is my phone with the new case and stickers!!!

again....check out this iPhone 5 case

This iPhone 5 case is beautiful from every angle

Me too!!!!!

5.) Okay, I leave you with this. Beaker ALWAYS makes me laugh.....
