I hope all your Christmas plans are coming together nicely .. .. mine are heading in the right direction .. .. but very, very slowly.
Still lots to be done .. .. but it is the same every year! I always try and cram too much in (and I am not just talking mince pies) LOL!!
No time to actually make anything today for sharing as I am working on a few hundred invites that are needed for January .. .. but I can share some labels that I made from my snippets last night ready for putting onto the presents I have spoken of before. The presents where the contents have to start with the initial of the name of the person receiving the gift(s). Lots of goodies priced at £5 per person all wrapped into one package and adorned with their own personal label:
We exchanged gifts last night and shared a lovely Chinese meal and also celebrated Mr Heart's birthday which happened in the week. How many celebrations is he managing?!?!?! and they will still be continuing into next weekend. But it was a bit of a BIG birthday so it is allowed LOL!!
When we visit our friends I usually take my shoes off and leave them by the front door and last time we visited I was presented with my own special pair of slippers as they didn't want my feet to get cold on the conservatory floor. They were going to be put into safe keeping for each time I visit.
I thought that was really lovely.
But just look what had happened to my slippers when I was presented with them last night:
How special are those? My own special, personalised slippers! Lovely!!
It is a special two week long challenge over at Pixies Snippets Playground this time and I am taking my labels across to share them with my playmates. Lots of lovely prizes on offer as it is a special celebration time for Di.
I was fortunate to have one of my cards from last Sunday showcased by Di and I also received lots of questions as to what the ingredients were.
I did reply to emails but will list them here too:
The backing papers were from Kaisercraft and are called "North Pole" and the sentiment is one of a set of four from Whimsy Stamps called "Christmas Chalkboards 1".
I actually made this Christmas card as a personal one that I knew would have meaning for our youngest son (the musician) as he has had his music featured on a video advertisement for Deerz who manufacture gorgeous jumpers. Some in the style of the patterned paper. It is so lovely to see how a company has grown and how they produce their beautiful knitwear (and of course hear Steve's music alongside).
OK .. .. so time for our evening meal now.
Dishing up time!!!
I will catch you again before "the big day" but in the meantime enjoy your week.
