So, for my post today I thought I would share some of my snippets from the week past. I have finally completed all my craft gifts and little tokens and have started to package some up.
I have had fun with a stamp, bah humbug. A perfect little something for when friends and neighbours drop by.
Harris Tweed brooches have been packaged ready to be popped into gift bags.
Last years advent calendar inner was used to make some chocolate toppers for cup cakes. An ideal treat for the children. All stored in a plastic container ready for use.
The advent ring has been newly decorated all ready for the candles to be put in.
Another little elf has been added to the collection. They certainly have been busy in the craft room, all ready for when Santa stops by to make his deliveries. All the overseas mail, cards and parcels are all packaged and ready to go to the post office.
I have also finished a zig zag cushion and throw all ready to be packaged. I am loving every moment of all my preparations. Although early with some of the things it has taken the stress out of it all. I can now sit back and enjoy the season, take time to wrap the gifts and spend time thinking of each person I am wrapping the gift for. I can now take the time to write some letters to pop inside my cards and spend time thinking about each person I am writing to. The most wonderful time of the year...catching up with friends old and new. My family live all over the country too but December sees them all visit, so always a busy month. I have 4 sisters, 1 brother 12 nieces/nephews and 12 great nieces/nephews as well as family from my husbands side who we generally visit in December. My calendar is bulging and groaning at the seams which is why I have to be so organized early. We have plans for the weekend but next week will see the start of some of my batch cooking and baking for the freezer.
A couple of poinsettia have found their way into the house to add to the seasonal décor. My husband always treats me and my Mum at this time of year, a seasonal tradition. I am now going to put my feet up for a couple of hours and watch a Christmas film, I am loving the Christmas channel on TV. It is definitely addictive along with the hot chocolate and stirrers.
See you soon.
