Ready for Christmas

Blimey! Where did last week disappear to? I must have blinked a little bit too hard and missed it! I know that I said that I had almost finished my Christmas shopping but there still seems to be a hundred and one other things to do to get organised for the BIG day.

I have been Busy,Busy,Busy! There has been a lot more running around like a mad woman doing lots more Christmassy preparations. I have been.............


BUSY ~ counting down the sleeps until Christmas by opening advent calendars. Not long to go now! Although I don't think that Joseph should really be dressed as a dentist or that there was a dentist chair in the stable all those years ago, but the children were responsible for the additions which were very kindly lent by the Sylvanian families!


BUSY ~ writing Christmas cards AND managing to get them posted before I miss the last posting date.


BUSY ~ wrapping my little Giveaway presents.


BUSY ~ buying a few more little Christmas presents ~ this time for ME! I'm not quite sure just how these little things managed to find their way into my shopping bags either!


BUSY ~ rippling away and trying to get this scarf finished in time for Christmas and making a few more felty decorations for the Christmas tree.

I hope that you are all having as much fun as me and enjoying this rather hectic time of year in the week before Christmas. I'm really looking forward to the BIG day and think that I am getting more excited than the children are! :O)

You are such a busy little lady. Still looking at those boxes of cards, just can't seem to get at them. Too busy reading blogs...he-he...

I have that Motif book,too. Keep us posted on what you find that you like. I've tried a few, but frogged in the end. Can't wait to see your creations. I just loved the colors on the front, but inside was challenging for me.

Love all the great pictures here today.

Thank you so much for the lovely parcel full of goodies. It arrived this morning. I signed for it thinking it was yet another present for Santa to bring on christmas day and what a pleasant surprise it was to find it was actually a beautifully wrapped present just for me. I have taken some photos to put on my next blog posting so I can share the joy. And how strange it felt to see the parcel and the box of cards pictured on your blog. Modern technology baffles tired old mother...
