I am not going to apologies for using the "C" word so early in the year, in fact I intend to use it more frequently. I am an unashamed lover of Christmas, I enjoy planning for it and I enjoy making for it and I enjoy the whole festival of it.
Last year I blogged my Christmas countdown from the 1st of December up to Christmas Eve but December can be such a busy time of the year not to mention expensive so I have decided to make an early start to ease some of the pressure. I started by compiling a list of 24 makes but I am now up to 75!! some of them are a bit vague "make something with button" some are really detailed with sketches and of course I have started a Pinterest board (currently locked down). I have settled on 50 makes in the end, but I am not going to publish the list as I think it will evolve a little as I go along and I want this to be a fun thing and not something I must do because the list says so.
Rather than rushing out and buying a whole lot of new stuff I want to try and use up things I already have such as blackboard paint, coloured strings, brown paper, pine cones etc but I do recognise that a small amount of expenditure will be inevitable because my will power is not strong enough! and I may need to get things to finish off a project.
If you are feeling a little festive here is little bit of Wizzard to sing along to.
Please share you thoughts, am I way too early and not living in the moment or am I on your wave length and you already have your own plans drawn up?
