AMAZING ADVENT CALENDAR
I would love to have an advent calendar like Brooke’s from Inchmark [via Homemade by Jill]. I wonder how many hours it took to put it all together??

GREAT STOCKING FILLERS
Need something extra to put in the Christmas stocking for a loved one (or to put in your own stocking?!) Simple Serendipity’s Etsy shop [via eighteen25] sells jewellery which is $5 US or under!
Take this beautiful piece of jewellery which is $3 US:
With shipping to New Zealand ($3.10 US…more than the earrings…ha!) it would still only cost me about $7 or $8 NZ…crazy!

FUN GAME FOR IPHONE/ITOUCH
I feel it would be neglectful, if I didn’t warn you that you may get addicted…you and your hubby may stay up late trying to out score each other.
Ok, now that is out of the way….Scramble is a free game that you can download to your itouch or iphone. It’s where you try to make words out of letters that have been supplied, in the time limit allocated. To make a word, the letters have to be touching.
You can play solo, challenge a friend (a number of you can play the same game on the same itouch/iphone and see who gets the best score, or if you both own a itouch/iphone you can send a challenge to a friend. In order for them to find you, or you find them, you need their “number” and they need to have a name set up under their profile) or you could verse others live online.
I don’t feel like I excel at it…but it’s so much fun! If you get addicted, let me know, and we can play a couple of games!

EXTRA LENGTH TOILET PAPER
I never thought I would endorse toilet paper…but here I am!
With a family of 6, we churn through toilet paper. Quite often several empty toilet rolls would end up “next” to the rubbish bin?!?! Not a great look!
Then I tried the Purex Mega Roll and I haven’t looked back. We buy one pack of 4 rolls, and that will last us a week. In the past we would use at least 8 rolls. So now, instead of putting 6 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom cabinet, we just put in 2 mega rolls…saves a heap of space.
Love not having to look at empty rolls on the ground, love not having to change them so often, and love that it is good quality.
You may want to give extra long toilet paper a go!
