I'm in one of those annoying phases where I have a bunch of projects half finished, and a couple of exciting upcoming events, but I don't really have much to show you here.  I could show off the half-finished-maybe-never-to-be-completed lemonade stand I was building on Sunday.  I could post a pic of some un-hemmed elf sized pj pants I'd almost forgotten I was making until just tonight.  Instead I will show you a bunch of teaser-can-you-guess-what-I'm-making? type photos, because that's what I have, right here on my computer.  And I will intersperse those with some thoughts, because that's what I do.

I am a teeny bit worried that blogging about lots Christmassy stuff is going to take away some of the fun of it for me.  I hope the opposite is true, but it's a niggling concern of mine.  I guess I can only find out one way.  You see, I have a bit of a plan for the month of December, and it's going to be full.on.  For me.  You can just sit back and (hopefully) enjoy ya'selves.

Unrelated.  One of my longest-time, bestest buds is getting married at the end of summer, after a short and sweet engagement.  I am quite excited!  I'm totally itching to step in and take over help out, but I am maintaining a calm and collected distance for now, because there's a distinct possibility that she might have her own decorative/etc ideas...  However, the minute she asks for even the tiniest bit of help, I am going to be hiring babysitters, hauling out my sewing machine/glue/scissors and making all manner of wedding things.  Yup.  I'm a bit excited.

Also.  This weekend we are going on a short roadtrip with my dad, to see a bunch of my favourite people in the whole of the entire universe I think some photos might get took.  It will provide a refreshing break from all this Christmas/birthday party preparation that I've been working on in the background.  I'll be off the grid for a few days.  It will be very good for me.

So how are your mid-November-heading-into-pre-Chrismas lists/plans/projects going?   Mine are going slower than expected - with our newly adjusted summer hours (Zan works many more hours in the summer - our days are long and busy, already).  Things may be a little bit quiet around here over the next few days, as I attempt to knock out a few important projects I've committed myself too - and then head out of town (but technically into town because we are country mice now) for a night, but there are some v. fun posts planned for v. soon.  And in fact, I will be back on Friday with the Christmas Linky - which is open until Boxing Day, because I-have-no-idea-how-to-host-a-link-party-and-why-do-you-have-a-closing-date-anyway-and-also-what?

And that may have been my most random post ever.  x


  1. It is hard to blog when you are secretly making Christmas stuff in the background!
    Loving the sneak peeks though

  2. Ohh looking forward to seeing what you have lined up!!
