So it’s the first week of December…anybody else feel that it’s here awfully quickly and only a moment ago there had been warm, summer sunshine?
Anyway, Busy Thistle preparations are underway. With work etc taking over at the moment I had to be realistic this year so it’s less of a handmade Christmas than normal. I have however got the majority of presents now which is something. I’ve also discovered Christmas-themed washii tape and have made the easiest cards ever – I’ll show them in a subsequent post.
I treated myself to a rather elaborate Advent calendar this year which is based on the children’s book 365 Penguins; it’s got a lovely retro feel about it, and although you know that behind every door there will be a penguin, there is a short wee ditty in an accompanying mini-book which is to be read alongside opening the door – I love it!
Finally, I keep decorating to minimum until a week or so before Christmas however I received this lovely red poinsetta at the weekend so it has pride of place in the living room, adding a touch of festive glamour! Hope your preparations are going smoothly!
