Weekly Challenge Update...& Christmas Shopping
Is that an OWL amongst the horses (or a cat amongst the pigeons???)
.....oh, it's Hootle McTootle, the owl that keeps me up all night hooting outside my bedroom window. Hello Hootle!
Christmas shopping (plus a little something for moi!)
Each week I am challenging myself to get organised for Christmas, because I have orders to do for different people (super organised people that have thought 3mths ahead - and I thought I was bad!!!!). Last week I aimed to have 4 horses, 2 cats and some Christmas decorations made by yesterday. Well, I kind of fell short by not doing any Christmas decorations (this week they will get finished!), 3 horses, 2 cats (that have already been mailed out and received by the happy new owner - thanks Claire!), and an owl (because I was going crazy with the horses and wanted an evening off!). I like owls, I like birds in general and quite often bore hubby and kids with my bird spotting (there's a wren in the garden as I type...little cutey!)
The mint green and the red horse both have removable rosettes/brooches/corsages - whatever you want to call them. I am rather pleased with them. My plan was, you could have the brooch and give the horse to your child (yes...YOU!!!!!). Two gifts for the price of one!
And the last pic of today's post is from Sarah at pink-petal-designs (again!!!!) I ordered these pencil rolls for Grace and her friend, Poppy. I also ordered a covered notebook for Grace too (and want another one for Poppy!) and when I got the parcel this morning there was another little surprise in there - a cute little card purse which is perfect for my Moo cards when I am important business lady and hawk my wares (ok, when I am the craft fair in the rain more like!). Thank you Sarah....I want more things please :) (and do you think you could a little crayon roll for the baby monkey? hmmmm,there's an idea for you!)
Everyone this year is getting homemade something from somewhere. I am preparing my list so I don't get too excited and buy too much! Warren (darling husband) says he doesn't want anything homemade (not even cake??????? - surely not!) but I have been on a mission to track down something very lovely for him that he will love...it's Decole and cute, and it's not homemade but I decided to get it anyway. It's on it's way from Japan thanks to the lovely Eri at www.nuno-plus.com (and it's not even fabric related, they just did it as a favour - how gorgeous are they????!!!!) So keep your eyes peeled for it!
Right, I'm off to decide what my mission for this week is. Christmas decorations I think...and lots of them.
See you soon xxx
