Eeek STILL not ready (no surprise there then!)

Nope, not at all. Still piles of pressies to wrap. That was meant to be my job tonight. But I am stuck making the tags. I need my snowflake punch (cos I want to punch through glitter card and I cannot anyhow make my Craft Robo cut through that!). And my snowflake is nowhere to be found. So I now have to start the mammoth task of tidying my craft room - which is what I should have done to start with rather than keep picking up piles of this and that to look underneath!

Anyhow, I have all the stuff that needed to be posted sent out and all the cards for handing out written out too. Apart from the Special Cards that I have still to make (parents, inlaws, DH and kids). Oh and just realised I need to wrap the teacher pressies yet (cheat, bought everything from Sainsbury's this year) so that has to be done tonight regardless.

Have done a final few Christmas projects. Pictures of a wall hanging and my Christmas cards are over on the Collectively Yours blog for this week (plus you have to see the gorgeousness created by some of the other girls). Have to give a massive thanks to Etui22 for the dove template which she kindly created and freely shared over on UK Scrappers.

And the layout below was my blog creation for last week (sorry about the flash and it is, I promise, all 100% straight in real life, my photography skills are pants!).

I used non Christmas products - Fancy Pants and Making Memories patterned papers, Creative Cafe tags, Prima flowers, Basic Grey and Creative Imaginations rub-ons, Making Memories printed tag and shimmer alphabet, Heidi Swapp heart, Brads and ribbonsE, poxy photo corners (??? very very very old stash!)

The rub on to the bottom right has the sentiment "for Christmas, give your heart" and the other rub on sentiment says "blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love".

Bless you for NOT having a tidy craft room - neither do I especially this time of year. It just HAS to be off limits when xmas guests are coming tomorrow. YES it is one day early here in DK - so at least you can feel less behind your schedule compared to me. HAVE A LOVELY CHRISTMAS and "see" you in 2008. If you feel like browsing some Danish traditions - feel free to visit my blog during the holidays.
