Gift wrapping and such.

Friday, December 23, 2011

I'm excited to have finished wrapping our Christmas gifts! I was feeling very disorganised, but now that it's done all I can think about is handing them out on Christmas morning! This year, my son and I made our own muesli and packaged it using labels I designed and then had printed as stickers. Lella tells me her theme has 'aced' mine this year, so I'm looking forward to seeing it Christmas day!

Love Actually.

It's been so wet and cold here that it's hard to believe it's almost Christmas. Last night I thought I'd try to feel a little more festive, so put on Love Actually, one of my favourite Christmas movies. It doesn't matter how many times I've seen it, it still gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. I love it. I still remember the first time I saw it at the movies, I didn't want it to end.

An early Christmas present.

As my Husband and I get older it's harder to buy surprises for each other. We do more of a wish list system for Christmas which means you have some idea of what might be wrapped under the tree. So when I went to put something in my Husband's car and saw 'The Little Veggie Patch Co' book on the seat, I turned to him for an explanation. He confessed it was a Christmas gift for me, and I got very excited – and a little angry that he hadn't hidden it in a better spot!
The book by Fabian Capomolla and Mat Pember is awesome! If you are at all interested in growing your own veggies or herbs it's a must have. It's full of veggie growing wisdom, and is fantastic even if you only have a tiny yard or live in an apartment. It makes a great Christmas gift...

A joyous front door.

Every year I get so excited about Christmas and all the lovely crafts and decorations you can make, but I rarely end up doing anything special apart from gift wrapping. This year I started early and made a wreath for our front door using paper, cardboard and buttons. It was easy to make and I feel joyous every time we open our door!

Hello December, my favourite month, my favourite time of year – I've been waiting for you.
I'm so excited, Christmas is on the way! We introduced our two and a half year old to the joys of Christmas tunes – as we danced to Diana Krall, he declared he could listen to 'Jingle Bells' all day. My heart is full.
