I don't remember ever seeing the Charlie Brown Christmas. I have seen it mentioned quite a few places lately and after finding this on youtube, I thought I would share it. What Christmas is all about.

Have a wonderful Christmas.

Christmas is coming

Christmas Nativity Set

Christmas is almost here and I am not ready for it at all. How about you? I had planned to be so organised this year and make so many things and be quite festive but it hasn't happened. I have been pinning things on my Christmas board on Pintrest and have been so inspired to make all matter of delightful things, but not this year.

Remember in my last post when I said that Amelia had been to hospital for the day, in the ambulance? Well, the day after that post, Amelia ended up in hospital. She was in hospital, which meant I was in too. The tummy bug got the better of her. Thankfully, she responded well to the treatments and we came home 3 days later. Since then, the whole family has gotten sick, including me.

So anyway, I am writing this post as a sign off, of sorts. I give up, I give in, I surrender. I haven't been keeping up with the blogging so I am taking the next month off. The run of illnesses we have had in the house has really made everything harder to do. It is summer holidays here starting Friday, so it is time for a break anyway. The kids will be home for 5-6 weeks. I plan to rest up, relax and hang out with the kids. I hope we can do some making together and have fun.

I hope to be back to regular (ha!) blogging at the end of January. I need to spend some time going through the mid-craft list and let go of some projects that are just never going to get done. And I need to re-organise my 'to-do' list into what is achieveable and what is not. And then, I need to set myself some goals (New Years Resolutions?) to work out how to make time for my making. I need a creative outlet to keep sane and I have been getting increasingly frustrated that I am not doing more of what I love.

How's that for a post? A bit deep and meaningful? Well, whatever. Had to be said.

I am going to post a few of my favourite random Christmas videos over the next few days in the lead up to Christmas. I am loving youtube for getting festive while we have been housebound.

Thanks for reading along this year and I will see you in 2012!

Christmassy stuff

Hi. Remember me? I am the one that pops in from time to time. *Sigh*. I have to say, we have had a run of illness lately. For the last few months, it seems to have been one thing or another. The latest hit - a tummy bug that has floored us. One that had Amelia end up in the back of an ambulance spending the day in the emergency room. Fortunately, we didn't have to stay in and we hope and pray the problem will not happened again.

I thought since I haven't really had the time (or energy) to be blogging for a while, perhaps I should drop by and just give you a few Christmas ideas from the archives. And then maybe one day, I'll actually be back - with actual projects that I am in the middle of. :-)

Christmas reindeers

Star trees

Rolled felt candles

Christmas card circles

See you another day.
