We’re approaching the final furlong in the race towards the big day and the excitement is building here. This year our youngest is in on the act and knows Father Christmas brings presents so it’s double trouble with our two! I’m already wondering how much sleep I can expect on Christmas Eve. If I don’t get started on wrapping soon, it won’t be much because I’ll be up all night endlessly folding and sticking, never-mind calming over-excited pre-schoolers. Which reminds me, I need to get some paper that our eldest hasn’t seen, so it can wrap the presents from Father Christmas! He’s like a miniature Sherlock Holmes, asking questions that even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wouldn’t have thought of, like how do the reindeer fly, and why do they land on the roof, and why was the [Rotary Club] sleigh being pulled by a car? I could do a book of answers to the mysteries of Christmas, just to avoid holes in my story.
The Christmas cards are finally done and sent and so now I’ve found a spare minute I will share them – in three batches, as I made them! I love heat embossing for a simple elegant look, and I have a beautiful Clearly Christmas stamp set from Hunkydory so this is what I went for.
