Busy, busy...


Hi Girls, in between work I've been doing a few more Christmassy things this week, like.....



cutting up all the magazines so that I have lots of pictures,





To stick in My Christmas book that I make every year. In it I write all about the days out we have, the presents we give to everyone, my Christmas card list, I stick in all the lovely cards we receive, and the price of all the new baubles etc I've bought this Christmas.





(Oops forgot to rotate piccie!) This is this year's book. I hand stitched around each little square to make them stand out with a gold embroidery thread.





This is when I went to Angel & Rose.





I've also been writing piles of Christmas cards to family and friends and decorating the envelopes with some new stamps.








Some lovely stickers.

And one of the best parts of Christmas is re reading all the lovely Christmas books I've collected.











especially "The night before Christmas" book on Christmas Eve, can't wait to put the tree up tomorrow. Have to go to work this morning so bye for now...Lucey xx
