Not all the food on my desk ends up being eaten by me. I can't possibly say how much I do eat, I shouldn't want my capacity to upset anyone - either because you're disgusted or of course, you may be jealous! Despite appalling lighting and worse photography, I can show you some tags I made for me chums. I am happy to know people who craft with me and still include me in their socialising, and I don't need asking twice!
We had a Secret Santa supper on Tuesday evening which was lovely. Pressies and cards, food and chat. You know. I decided on Monday to include a candy cane with each christmas card. Then the envelopes were all bulky and uneven and I hate that. So then I decided to make a tag to hang from each candy cane...and that's why my desk looks like it did in yesterday's post (and still does actually..). I challenged myself to make the tags using only offcuts and snips and I wanted to include each gals' initial. They were originally all going to be the same, and in the same colours as the candy cane.That idea lasted about 30 seconds once I'd seen my collection of christmas paper offcuts! Still, the gals were polite enough to be pleased with them - there are more, but they'll wait for a less linear post! Preparations move apace here; this morning I decided to decorate and beautify the conservatory which will be our dining room for the holidays. Gahhh. Should have done it after three o,clock. Then I wouldn't have noticed the dust and streaky windows so beautifully highlighted by the sunshine. And I wouldn't have felt duty bound to clean them. You'll be unsurprised to read then, that I am studiously avoiding looking at the oven whilst this mood of domestic goodness is upon me.
