I don't make my own life easy - I try and keep my plans to what I hope will be manageable levels, but in reality I still try and hope I can do more than is possible. I tend to feel I have failed if all the plans in my head don't come to fruition, but this year the voice in my head will just have to shush!, as I really tried my hardest and what was able to get done, did get done. I made these little gift card envelopes for my friends, my mum and myself. Inside I bought vouchers to go on the Big wheel at the O2 for friends and some Marks and Spencer Vouchers for the Teacher and Special Needs Assistant. I think they turned out lovely.
At the beginning of December I bought lots of jars in Ikea and made spiced Pears for gifts. I packaged them with boxes of crackers, some blue cheese and the jars, along with a pretty tag that I rustled up and the gift went to friends too.
The girls had a lovely christmas - here are a few pictures....
I did my boxes of goodies this year but in the rush to get them done, and circulated I forgot to photograph them, and the dressed jars of Cranberry sauce. So there ya go - a wrap up of the season and am tempted to take the tree down tomorrow - very tempted, I keep taking an item down every time I go upstairs and plonk it in the box and nobody has noticed! Nite all and working on a few small things so might have to wait a while for the next post. Happy New Year ya all!
