Christmas already?

I'm not a fan of starting my Christmas shopping or the whole prepping for it too early. I generally don't start decorating until well into December sometimes not even until the kids come home for the holiday so they can help. Son #1 is a December baby so he actually likes to decorate and I enjoy the company, as apposed to son#2 who is much like the Tin Man and will avoid decorating if given the chance.

But last week found me making Christmas cards, due to a suggestion of having a ChristmasCard workshop. It seemed like a fun idea until I started to make cards and the Christmas spirit just wasn't flowing too creatively. I did manage to make a couple of card but as you can see the traditional Christmas colours that I usually enjoy playing with for the season just weren't there. So I went with what I had, which as you can see was blue. It's a good thing I don't send out too many card for the holidays or I may have to resort to buying them:( Now that just won't do.

Oh and then on the weekend I actually started my Christmas shopping...well if you can call picking up a $2 stocking stuffer started!!
