Sounds like crickets to me! My poor, poor neglected blog. I fear for its livelihood once the holiday season really kicks into high gear… There will be cookies to bake and presents to wrap and all those TV specials from childhood just beckoning to be watched.
Silly me foolishly made a completely unreasonable goal for myself (and I know I’m not the only one) to make every gift I give this season. And do you think I’ve started even one? Ha! Oh sure, the list is made and many of the supplies purchased but that’s the easy part, no? Ah well, Christmas is weeks away yet. There’s still time! Right? (she says nervously…)
And even if I don’t get to make everyone’s gifts, there’s of course loads of opportunity to buy handmade. Dee and I are off to Crafternoon Tea on Saturday – the brainchild of the fabulous and completely inspiring Nathalie-Roze. There should be plenty of drool-worthy loot to spend some cash on (and I will try to refrain from purchasing only gifts for myself…)
In truth, I have a hard time feeling festive until the calendar switches to December, the tree goes up and the decorations come out of the cobwebs. Speaking of decorations, here’s some button wreath ornaments (gleaned from over here) that I dropped in the mail for a swap. That should quash Adam’s worries about the button hording. For now. The lovely ladies who are receiving these are also getting some little paper packs of holiday mini cards and gift tags.
Ack! Christmas cards… another thing for the list.
