THAT'S IT! I'M DONE WITH CHRISTMAS CARDS!!!
I'm not making any more until 2011 and that's final! I am, however, going to order 100 card blanks in the New Year and will keep them separate and purely for my Christmas cards and then I'll be able to see my own progress towards Christmas 2011! Do you think it will work? No, I'm not sure either but it's worth a try!
Well it's the season of Christmas parties and I'm sure everyone has lots to attend this year. No new frock for me though, since we've both stopped working there are no "works" do's to go to and this also leaves a couple more evenings to meet up with friends for meals etc. too, which will be lovely - we are meeting up soon with our friends from Thatcham - for an Italian meal and Bristol friends for an Indian meal - wonder how many types of cuisine we could fit in between now and Christmas! We have guests joining us for a Thai evening in the near future - that'll be the surrogates and hubby will be cooking - I'll be the "hostess"!! I've already made the place cards and napkin holders and posted photos of them on recent posts so I think I have finished all my Christmas stuff and should be able to file all my Christmas stamps, embellishments, papers etc - till the New Year. WELL THAT'S THE PLAN ANYWAY. And, to that end, we've even put a tree in the dining room in readiness . . . . . . it's a black fibre optic - please ignore the plastic bag in the foreground, it's the one the decorations were in!!!! Ooops - guess I need to tidy there next!
I've also put away my Christmas supplies of wrapping paper, tags, boxes (for concealment of "odd" shaped gifts - fiend that I am!!!) and my spare bedroom looks tidier than its been in weeks (make that months!) - just as well since some of the friends we'll be catching up with over the holiday season will be staying overnight!
Right, so - now I've no Christmas projects to fill my time - exactly what AM I going to be doing? I've no idea at the moment but am determined to find un-Christmas-y crafting to do. Wish me luck!
That's all for today folks - I think the sun is WELL over the yard arm and I plan to take a leaf from the book my good friend, Lauren, and have a little drinkie! Have a pleasant evening peeps - catch you all tomorrow
