I don't know about you but every year Christmas comes around long before I am ready for it and I don't get into the Christmas spirit or have all the frills I would like to lead up to the holidays. Well this year I am trying to be organised much earlier than usual so i am making an advent calender months in advance so once its finished I can fill the drawers with goodies for my kidlets. I am also going to attempt making bulk Christmas cards and perhaps even start on making some presents for loved ones. I'll keep you posted on my progress once I have achieved some. I always look at blogs leading up to Christmas where paper craft artists are preparing mini albums in advance for the 25 days leading up to Christmas and I think - "how do they find the time to do this?" Each year seems to get crazier as the kids get older and there are so many school commitments, end of year functions and then swimming lessons for the last 2 weeks before Christmas to top it off! Who has time for Christmas shopping?! Well (I'm a little slow sometimes) I figured out that some must start back here in September or even earlier! In fact, my sister-in-law does all her Christmas shopping in September so there is no pressure thinking about all that while she is harvesting right up to Christmas Eve....smart girl!
Bye for now...thanks for looking!
