Busy Christmasy Days Here

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind. ~Mary Ellen Chase

We have had some busy days here lately, which is to be expected with Christmas approaching and the completion of our school year. Also my Mum has been staying with us the last fortnight and I have been spending time with her rather than you, my dear readers. I am sure you will forgive me.

We enjoyed a little early Christmas present opening with her before she left to fly home. After all, Christmas is all about giving and I wanted to give her the opportunity to see the smiles on faces of little ones as they discovered the beautiful things she had given them.

There's a big smile on my face also after all the lovely comments you gave me in response to viewing My Shopping List Cover. They were entirely unexpected. Thankyou!

Now my work table is busier than it was as I have been inspired by one of your ideas. Come back here in a day or two and I'll have something special just for you. It has been a while since I have had a giveaway and what better time than now - the season of Advent.

Oh, goody! A giveaway! I am E-X-C-I-T-E-D!! I'm really not a greedy person, but I surely would like to win THIS giveaway! :-)

I like your choice of songs on your flash player. Who was singing the first song? Very Nice!

Oh, I just discovered who the musicians are on your flash player. You've chosen a nice widget--better than the one that most people use.


My sewing machine has given up and is away to get repaired now, so that's limiting my time for making my last sewing projects (fortunately most of the things were done already).

Health has occupied our house again - thank god everybody is doing well again, it has been quite a busy two weeks..

Homestay Mama I would love you to win this one too. You have me a great idea. Best of luck to you. It is nearly complete now!

agh Nina, it is horrible having your machine away. mine needs a service but I am putting that off and off over and over. I hope I don't live to regret it :) So glad you have a healthy household now. You can enjoy a calmer leadup to Christmas. You are so organised with things finished already.
