I am not getting stressed about Christmas, but I have been rather busy.
It is just another day, a special one I admit. We are such a small family unit, we do not fuss.
Thank you so much for keeping in touch. I have been busy helping other people with bits and pieces. I just do not seem to get much time at home. My answer to requests from today will be "NO" ....... well that`s the plan ..... will it work???? I very much doubt it.
Yesterday I spent wrapping all the gifts. That`s done, finished, the boys things "hidden" for now. John has been very naughty!!!!!! Every time he has gone out he seems to have bought things for the boys. Little things he says, yes! they are little in size but some not so little in cost. Some I had seen, I was there, we bought them together. Others had been squirrelled away till yesterday. Oh! Man! there are so many, I have to admit I think John himself was surprised how many things there were. The boys spend a fair bit time here, we have divided things up a bit. We will keep items that they can use and play with at our house. We will have parcel opening here later in the week.
Now I have only some "Tablet" to make to fill some little boxes for my neighbours. We do not have that many neighbours but there are a few that help us with things that John is not able to manage. Although they are not looking for a gift, I do like to give them a little "thank you" for what they do.
Today`s card is one of quite a few I have made since I saw the one Robert made for his mum & dad.
The card is 2 x A6 cards stuck together making it a tri-fold I think you would call it
Music paper and a Die cut figure. You do not see that I have actually used gold gilding wax on the figures
Red ribbon and a stamped greeting
Back image also gilded. Ooopps! looking at that image she looks like a bit of a "witch" Too late they are all posted/delivered.
That`s it for today
I will try hard to be a better blogger. Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
