Ok, I admit it, I’m struggling at the moment. With christmas and selling stock online, meaning endless trips to the Post Office, I am finding myself super duper busy. I’m struggling to clean my house or find time to get out anywhere! I kind of can’t work out why though? Compared to a lot of other people, working mothers for example, I should have LOADS of time to get everything done, but somehow the hours are just slipping me by.
I have decided to be a bit adventurous this year. I’ve taken an interest in crafting through reading other blogs and being flooded with inspiration. I think homemade christmas presents have such an amazing feel about them and it makes this time of year so magical and full of love, just as it should be. So I am currently trying to put together several hampers, getting very crafty creating little labels and cards. I also have the fact that I am meant to be baking endless treats to fill these hampers full of yummy, loving goodness, constantly at the back of my mind…. haunting me. I know, I know, I could just give in and buy everyone the generic 3 for 2 presents from that well known shop everyone runs to for last minute ‘I have no clue what to get you so you’re just going to get some sort of toiletry’ gifts. That doesn’t really have the same effect or ‘christmasy’ feel about it though, does it? Plus, I’ve started, so I’m going to finish it. Other things in my life are just going to have to suffer while it gets done. At least my son is getting to do lots of crafty fun rather than sitting in front of the TV all day while I try to get blog posts written. I bet he is appreciating my new found hobby.
Unfortunately I can’t even really blog about my crafty projects, not only because they are taking up every free nanosecond of my time, but also because the people I am making them for read my blog and it would kind of ruin the surprise, thus making it one humongous waste of my time. I’m so excited by it all too, especially when things turn out well/better than expected, it’s so hard not to come on here and share it all.
So I will leave you with this (very nondescript picture) and look forward to sharing all my crafty ‘craftings’ when the recipients have seen their christmas goodies! Excited? me? Just a tad….
