Quick Catch Up: Hello December

December 2, 2013 | Reads | 2 Comments

‘Tis the season. It actually is! I don’t think I made any secret of the fact that Christmas is a time of insane excitement in our home.

November has been a a whirlwind of dashing about all over the place – literally, all over the place. I started out in Dublin and ended in Harrogate. Not only did I get the chance to meet some amazing creative folks, but (probably more that I will ever need) yarns, fabrics and crafty supplies. My adventures in November have not just been ‘in real life’ travels, I’ve been pretty busy on the internet too. Through out November I’ve Guest Pinner for Homemade With Love Magazine. If ever I needed a legitimate reason to loose hours on Pinterest, then that was it. So, if you’re starting to turn your thoughts to hosting a Fabulous Festive Party this winter, be sure to check out my collections of pins on the dedicated board!

Now, that December is finally here, it is time to immerse ourselves in the spirit of the season. Having proclaimed that I adore all things Christmas you’ll no doubt be thinking that I have it all wrapped up (pardon the pun) already. Well, my friends, I’m never one to leave things to the very last minute, but I have to confess that I’m usually a lot more ahead with the preparations than I seem to be this year.

But, now that the life on the open road is behind me, and I’m settling back in to our little family life [read: unpacking and catching up with laundry!] I can’t wait to get stuck in to lots of festive makes and planning – so, fellow Christmas Cheermisters, watch this space, Christmas is coming!
