my creative space 'reindeer stampede'

Greetings all,
Christmas decoration shopping for our home & my market stall just took on a whole new meaning . . . seems ALL these reindeer had to come home with me from Lincraft as they are ALL vitally important props in Christmas (well that's what i told my husband).  Now to decide on how to decorate or leave plain??  Any ideas??
 Prices range from $3-10, not included in the 30% off sale this week as snappily stated by the nasty shop assistant i had to endure!!
 Look at these naughty reindeer from Allana C, gobbling away at the GingerBreadHouse!!
 I'm back on Tony Ferguson weight loss diet (more just a very sensible eating regime) & after a little morning snack from The Flute this morning in Fyshwick then a trip taste testing our way around the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets . . . my husband made me a very sensible lunch.  Tony Ferguson is brilliant if you don't drink tea, coffee, alcohol (i don't), you can resist bread, rice, potato, pasta (i can) & only have time for a brisk walk for exercise (i do).  The weight falls off. 
Check out the new Handmade Market postcards, yahoo, only 30 days away!!  Check out the website & FaceBook to win a copy of the Handmade Living. a designer collective book!!
Finally, the reason we were on the south side of Canberra this morning . . . picking up this delivery of Creationary which i won from the clever & talented Jho from One Red Robin blog.  Thanks Jho!!  I have to say, it couldn't have gone to a better home, we are Lego mad, we love board games, our children are creative to the core & the words "let's go back to school to pick the children up & take them home to play with this now" slide out of my mouth at 10a.m.  Funnily enough my husband didn't swing by the school on our way back to north Canberra.
So that's it from me this week, i am recovering from a migraine, which came on strong during a P&C meeting last night (coincidence??) & i had to leave & came home very very very sick indeed.  It was a blur of throwing up, shower, sleep & waking up like i've been hit on the head.  Argh!!  So today i rest, enjoy my lunch & get ready to put my game face on for when the children finish their homework & challenge them to a game of Creationary!!  Bring it!! 
Happy
Creative Spacing everyone, love Posie

I think your reigndeer would look lovely painted white with red, silver or gold ribbons around their necks. Or, you could use the paper mache glue and stick fabric strips on them...
Creationary is a lot of fun, we raced out and bought the lego games when they were expensive, but worth every penny. have fun posie xox

Melinda @ Here We Go Loopy Lou said...

Oh Creationery looks great!!! We are Lego mad in this house. I can see some red on those reindeers somehow??

Wendy said...

Hope your migraine has beat a hasty retreat...can't wait to see your reindeer all gussied up!

Oh, I can't avoid bread. How do you do it?

I like the crowd of reindeer. Maybe just a very simple decoration, like a bow around the neck or something, and keep the rest simple?

Vic said...

Attack of the faceless reindeers.... RUUUUUUUUUUUUN!!!! ;)

Christina said...

Oh dear, I live off bread, potatoes, rice and pasta. And like a tea and a wine or two. Though I consume my fair share of fruit and veggies, I never feel really full without some carbs. How do you do it?

:)

Cate said...

I have two of the smaller reindeer which I have just left unpainted and put big golden bows around their necks...quite effective if you like the au naturale look :-) Thanks so much for coming 'round to my place for a visit today - it's really nice to meet you!xxx

Maxabella said...

P&Cs are always likely to induce a migraine. Hope you're better now, love.

I fancy those reindeer plain but with a ribbon about the neck. Something simple would be my style. But then, you may wish to go to town!!! x

Amanda said...

I sympathize with the migraine sounds just like my versions they are the pits. Hope you are feeling less groggy soon.

Jennie said...

oh wow - theres allsorts you could do with those reindeer! I'm not sure what i'd go for tho! tough decision that one. The Creationary looks brilliant - let us know what the kids think of it!xx

Heidi said...

I think you should paint them all red the deer! I sure hope your felling better?

My Love is..... said...

Awesome reindeer.... you could go natural this year and decorate them next year....

Tania McCartney said...

Is this the Lincraft in Canberra City? The staff are HORRIBLE!!!!!

Love your stampede.

Posie Patchwork said...

Oh really liking your ideas ladies!! After Tania McCartney shunned me for not having a colour scheme already chosen when i went to the Christmas Barn . . . i see you are all into red, white & natural too. Hmmm, loving the inspiration. Keep it natural this year, paint them next year, not only fabulous idea but very easy!! Love Posie

spectacularfairywren said...

great customer service there too!
Sorry your winning giveaway has not yet made it. Have not finished the surprise bit...

VintageVicki said...

I think you should get your children to decorate a reindeer each - be interesting to see what they come up with.

Hope the migraine is gone - nasty things they are - am a fellow sufferer.

Mira Narnie said...

oh poor you getting a nasty shop assistant at Lincraft!!! I could definitely see them spray painted metallic gold or silver. Sounds like you had a wonderful day and glad you are recovering from your migraine. that board game sound fun...enjoy xx

The Clip Cafe said...

Oh no you can't leave them plain!!! But I don't haved any idea's either :-S I hope you are feeling better!!! The sensible eating sounds good - where do i find out more about this dr? :-)

A-M said...

Oh lovely to meet you Posie Patchwork. You live in my most favourite city in Australia and up until a few months ago we were going to move there. Big one got into Canberra Grammar, little one didn't. On waiting list for 2013. Love the weather, the lack of crowds, the 'no traffic', the food! A-M xx

Posie Patchwork said...

Thanks for the migraine well wishes, feeling better now, just taking my transition back to society slowly. Love Posie

Chicken Willow said...

I have no idea what a migrane's like, I've never had one, but they sound like crap. Glad to see your feeling better. xx

ana @ i made it so said...

oh we love creationary here! have fun!

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

I spotted those reindeer at Lincraft yesterday - can't wait to see what you do with them.

Creationary looks fun - we are big Lego lovers here (with an engineer and an aspiring engineer in the family).

Thea said...

Oh you poor thing still getting those nasty migraines. The only time I stopped getting them totally is when I used to run a few times a week (a few years ago) so I have my fingers crossed that you will stopped having them now that you will be getting on the bike. x
