Christmas is coming

I finally gave in and bought some Christmas cards.  I have been meaning to make some all year but the year has gone to fast for me.    This morning I went to Cards for Good Causes stall in the Library and bought a selection of cards.  I had to get some for Mum too as I usually do hers at the same time. 

My only problem with doing the cards is that I cannot find the last years Christmas cards address list.  I can only find the one from the year before, so fingers crossed there have not been too many people moving etc.


  1. Well done. I need to get my act sorted on that one. Every year I spend weeks selling Christmas cards (handmade, for charity) and end up not having my own ones done in time!

  2. I'm struggling this year to remind myself it's Christmas, being in the hot it doesn't seem right. Need to get myself organised though as due back to the UK in a couple of weeks!
