Did you miss me, bet you didn't. Sorry for being MIA the last couple of days, deadlines to meet and jobs to do.
Monday and Tuesday I had my children off school for in-service days so that kept me busy with other things.
On Wednesday I had a lovely day out with my pal Irene, we went to Inverness and did some Christmas shopping. I got some stocking fillers for my family and it would of been rude not to visit the local crafty shops too. I shall share my purchases with you next week as the lighting today is very poor. It is another dreich and dreary day with no blue sky at all out my window and there is a definite nip in the air. Brr! Winter is coming.
Today I am sharing a topper I made a while ago with a Christmassie feel as I chomp my way through an M & S mince pie with my cup of tea, nomm!
The being good on the food front has gone out of the window of late and the more I think about getting on track the more mince pies I seem to scoff!
I just love the food at this time off year, the cakes and the cheeses together with the mulled wine and spirits....all really should be out of bounds......but where would be the fun in that?! What I need to really do is go and light the fire and get my making head on as all these Christmas presents and cards need making. How are you getting on?
Are you super organised and have everything ready?
I'm not.....last minute.com here.
I do get there eventually mind you, not that it really matters this year as my hubby is working Christmas we have no visitors coming. I think Christmas day will be a quiet affair, the kids will play and not want to do anything else so I might get to craft!
We're having our Christmas day on Boxing day instead. Although I'll still probably cook all the usual on the day just on a smaller scale.
Here's a Santa......distressed style.
I have used Christmas miracle by Tim and Hero arts dots, vintage photo ink, glimmer mist gold, liquid pearl white and bling.
I love a vintage Christmas feel, don't you?
I've got a couple of bespoke cards to make this afternoon and then I better get myself organised for another early morning in work tomorrow. Have a super weekend all and stay warm and cosy. x
