like christmas! Well actually not a lot, a whole damn study worth! Yep it is official, Spotlight and Lincraft and my LSS have exploded in my study..there is little 2 feet of standing room and that's it..I have felt and papers and adhesives and stamps and reindeer food all in there little areas all over the study..have been on a christmas roll lately, which has been great but has also been very time consuming...
Ahhh yes the time factor..I really am time poor these days, and even more so the last couple of days, my poor little man is teething so bad, he is absolutely miserable and just sobs all day and night, panadol and bonjella just dont seem to be having any effect at all. Breaks my heart every time he looks at me with those beautiful eyes with tears rolling down his cheeks :( Bloody teeth, hopefully it will cut soon.
I am almost finished with the gifts for Dec 25th..almost being that I have a lot of them started and half finished and just a few that need to be started, most presents are wrapped and under the tree already,which Harrison takes great delight in rolling over to pull the pretty bows off and suck them, no-one will mind the drool will they?? LOL
I adore ready Kayla's blog right now..that girl seriously finds the cutest stuff to post, she has pics of felt owls..which I adore posted on there and pics of felt gingerbread people, I am dying to get the felt out to try these out, but have banned myself until I have finished the present making. I would link you to her blog, but well I am a link spaz and cannot seem to make it work LOL but it is on the right hand side if you want to mozey on over and check out her blog!
