Christmas crafting!

Is anybody else enjoying the TV and radio programmes about 1963 just now? I am. It is all due to the 50th anniversary of the death of JFK which is on Friday. I have to say I find it all rather glamorous, the whole Kennedy/Camelot thing and as I write I am listening to Robert Vaughn narrating JFK:The First Pop President on Radio 2's listen again facility. Great stuff!

So what have I been up to? In the last couple of days I have spent a certain amount of time sorting through my Christmas planning. I have been organising and deciding which making and baking are for my craft event at the beginning of December, plus what I will be making for us to enjoy over the festive season, basically the time we will spend together as our family unit when we return from our exciting trip to Lapland on Boxing Day!

I have been sorting through, and adding to, my papercraft items and here are some things you might have seen previously plus some additions. I like to think this gives you a really good idea of my style when it comes to Christmas.

Of course, now I go through the difficult time of deciding what to charge for my papercraft lovelies - I hate that bit of the proceedings.

Ok, it is now lunch time and I also need to check my slow cooker that is currently bubbling away with steak, red wine, onions and mushrooms for dinner this evening. Mmmm. Oh and the down side, it does seem my washing machine is not playing ball so I will have to wait for Jon to come home and take a look at it. Need to get things ready for our weekend away so better get it sorted.

Catch ya later! xx
