Tis the season

I gave in and the Christmas tree went up on Sunday. I've seen the school concerts, the kids have had their school party (and met Santa), I'm almost done with the shopping and only one more day of doing the school run! I do feel very Christmassy (although I haven't written any cards yet). Can't wait for the more relaxed mornings, I have two, very tired, small children and we're all struggling to drag ourselves out of bed in a morning. My youngest keeps asking if Santa has been. He has not learned the concept of time yet and has no idea how long a week is, every morning I can see the disappointment on his face but can't wait to see his expression on Christmas morning, last year he was probably a little bit to young for it all.


As always I left it too late to make things for the shop, most bits and bobs I've made have gone into the Folksy shop as it's UK only (for the time being whilst it's in Beta) and there's still time to post things out. I listed these two felt covered sketch books last night and have a big batch of brooches waiting to go in (just need a bit of sunshine so I can photograph them). Next year it'll be different, I'm going to start the preparation for the festive season in January, surely then I can be more organised!

sounds likes it's going to be fun in your house this Christmas. When E was about that age he got really upset when Father Christmas hadn't arrived when he woke up on Christmas Eve "but you told me he comes on Christmas Eve" he said........

We put our Christmas Tree up on the 1st December and my daughter asked EVERY day and EVERY night if it was Christmas today/tomorrow! Happy New Year.
