Baby steps...

Well, my first Christmas themed workshop of the year came and went.  It was a blast. Someone, as you can see, is so unready for the seasonal onslaught that even the Robins are catching us out. 

Shall we just remind ourselves - Robin REDbreast.  Oops!
 And I mean onslaught when I say it too.  Despite the beautiful sun and sweltering temps in the shop, we genuinely did the glitter and the Season's Greetings thing.  Mind you - it meant the glue dried quickly and that's not a bad thing at all.
Pudding or wreath - you decide - I'm past caring!
So my mind is thoroughly focussed forward and I may well be in a mild panic about oh, everything.  And then I remember - hey, I don't have to do it all at once and hey, however many times someone says 17 weeks to go...that's still actually quite a lot of weeks when you're a one-day-at-a-time, live-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, spontaneous, go-with-the-flow person.   Which I suddenly rather badly want to be.
Have a lovely weekend.  I'm going to the flea market at Kraft Crazy and then to Crop. Now that's my kinda forward thinking!

Not sure how you can do it all, but you always get it done "just in time."

Have a fun crop and a great shopping day, too.

It's a green pudding, unlike you it's not past caring honey - it's just past its sell-buy date! Snort. I might still have one here from 2012 when I think about it - we're not keen yet I always buy a Christmas Pudding.... just in case.

And remember, Christmas Day itself is gone in a flash :( The very best one I recall is when we'd just come home to the UK, I was 9 at most, and everything had to be bought last minute 'cos we only had suitcases with us - the huge crates were en route. Make do and mend - and yet it truly was the best of all!

Hugs, Di xx

I've been doing some projects for a design team thing, but struggling to do anything for myself...it's way too early and what about Halloween? Oh right I need to do that too! Then Thanksgiving and then Christmas!

So pleased you could get some Christmas cards done, even if it was a workshop. Dont panic, it really wont change things, Christmas is on the way. Ho ho ho....

Great cards, I really like the bottom one it is different, simple yet elegant.

Kezzy said...

Lol, I love the card definitely for me it's a wreath. I have just got my Christmas bits down. Normally it's around October but I had to do Xmas for a magazine article and I thought sod it, if I get it down now and slowly work on it maybe, just maybe, for once I might actually get some cards out for family this year lol :-) Kezzy xxx

Denise Price said...

Heehee, I too am enjoying that glue and paint are drying quickly in the heat these days. Christmas can wait... :)

Lisa-Jane said...

How does it always catch us out? Its the same day each year and yet every year I find myself panicking! I say wreath. And I must get the ludgershall dates off of you because I could have attended that one! They usually clash don't they.
