The Christmas crunch. It's here. And there's no time to waste. All that lovely epic snow disappeared and I finally got out of the house last weekend and haven't stopped running since. Normally I don't mind being "snowed in" just as long as it happens at a nice convenient time and I don't have to take the car out. I don't ask for much, do I? Nah.... Oh, that week seemed way too long for some poor folks. When it was all over we heard stories of truly harrowing experiences and counted ourselves lucky. Most of the kids were thrilled to be out of school, but shopkeepers were grumpy. It was finals week at the University. Not the best timing for them either.
I'm happy because all the shopping is done! The Christmas cards went out this morning. Fun gift wrapping is underway. I didn't have a color/theme in mind, but when I gathered everything together it looked perfectly coordinated. Which is funny because, I just sort of picked things up at random here and there over the past few months. (The animal tags are from Molly & Rex. 'From Me To You' tags from C.R. Gibson). I love hang tags and just discovered that Avery makes these, similar to the business cards that can be printed out at home. I was poking around the web and found these sweet designs specifically designed for them. (Thanks Jessica! She includes an excellent tutorial and a downloadable PDF too.)
Now I think it's time to bake something . . .
