These has been lots happening in our little world in the last two weeks, I'm sure there is lots happening where you are too. Its just that time of year. I have been feeling like there is something missing for my Christmas time this year and this morning I realised what it is- there hasn't been very much handmade Christmas happenings. It was really a result of our trip to the US happening at the time when I would usually be planning what I would be making for gifts and really starting to get organised.
I have had to buy all of my gifts this year. Which in a way makes me sad because I LOVE to put lots of love into my gifts. But in another way I know that it is just for this year and that's OK. I haven't been excessive with gift buying, sometimes you just have to simplify in this way.
I don't know about you but I am already starting to think about next year and what I want to get out of it. My year is going to be so different with Luke going to school. Gardening is on the top of my list but it will be far too hot here to be planting until late March. I have also been dreaming about soap making, cupcake making, jam, chutney and sauce making and am also really starting to think about making some clothes for my boys. Luke could really use a new quilt too!
