Gosh, things here are crazy at the moment, and I don’t feel like my feet have touched the ground. And this week has been an especially crazy busy week. Add into that the fact that in 1 week it will be Christmas Eve, and you might get the feeling that all this crazy is getting to me, just a little bit :S
Especially as I always feel responsible for everything having to be perfect!
So today I am keeping things simple, in the midst of the crazy, and sharing with you the weekly deals which arrived yesterday. But I forgot to share them in yesterday’s post because – you guessed it – things got a bit crazy while I was doing the post!
What lovely deals, and perfect to mix in with your new catalogue goodies come January… hint, hint!
The cotton paper is very popular with those who have used it, and goes brilliantly with the various framelits and punches in the Stampin’ Up! collection! I have not tried it yet, but I am sure I will do, especially as it will work brilliantly with the It’s My Party product suite…
I thought I would share a couple of photos I took on the twins’ birthday, of their pile of presents (this was before they added another similar-sized pile after their party!) and of them opening them. I hope that you enjoy the crazy!
A big shared present:
They did really well with sharing nicely, and taking the time to open their shared presents *together*. Not crazy at all, that bit! We just have to find homes for all these new goodies now, though. Not to mention more stuff at Christmas. When we are home after Christmas, we will be going through all of their toys with them (old and new) and choosing which things to keep, which to put away, and which to get rid of completely, as there will be FAR too much stuff to keep it all. They have already agreed to get rid of certain things, which will help. Then once we know what we need to store and where, we can get some appropriate storage solutions… wish us luck!
I will be making Christmas cards tonight, all being well, as I need to do the “special” family ones so they don’t miss out. The twins cards are made, but not the rest of them. I think I have a few plans, though. I still have not written any Christmas cards – more crazy, for me! – though I plan to rectify that by Monday. So I am off to work on my mega to-do list, and I hope that you all have a productive weekend if you need it, and a festive one if you want it ð
