    Arrggghhh.

        Only seem to be making necklaces aimed for valentines, so not Christmassy at all.
        Bought prezzie for 1 pal, and bought my dad some 'memory mints for senior moments'.

        Trying to stick to a budget this year, the stingiest Ive ever been ever.

            I just can't get into Christmas this year. It's bugging me that i can't get a nintendo wii unless i'm willing to fork out stupid money.

            My sales are way down from my website

            I can't be bothered making lots of cards as the highstreet have some really nice packs for a low price and i just can't compete so i'll just be doing a few 'special' ones.

            All in all i'm feeling quite low and tired about the whole thing which is a shame as i usually love the last month approaching Christmas

                      Bought too much to list on here, but only have a few items left to buy now.

                      Sold - quite a few paintings in the past few weeks, but I'm cooling off now with ebay because I have a shopping evening at the end of this week and then I have lots of other family things to do.

                      Made - well, I'm making some Christmas cards to sell, if they don't sell then they'll become Christmas cards to give. I'll make some decorations with the children for their friends, and I've been helping them make cards today.

                        Bought quite a few cards in the sale last Jan.. going to buy the rest from my Auntie who makes them..
                        Actually wrote a lot of my cards on Sun in front of a lovely roaring fire while we were in the woods (!)!!
                        Bought a few bits and pieces through the year, at various crafty events.

                        Have been searching on line today for hubbies pressie... a day out hunting with birds of prey at Stonham.. think he will love it.. Sis is getting it for bil and mum is getting it for dad so they will be on a proper 'boys' day out!!!

                        Thinking about the sales already... De vere hotels doing 2 nights for the price of 1 up to Feb, Dunstan Hall is near enough to get a taxi into Norwich for the sales... me mum and sis are seriously thinking about it, did it one mothers day, it was fabbbbbbbbb

                            Handmade pledge!

                            Well!!!! I have completed all my Christmas shopping - bought EVERYTHING (with exception of 2 books) from peeps on the forum (last 2 orders placed today!) as I'd taken the handmade pledge I was going to stick to it!!

                            I've made loads of Christmas cards, all to sell at the Craft Fair early December with the thought of what ever is left I will use myself!! Either that or its cheap and cheerful cards I'll be sending! Still have a few Christmas card orders on the go so to be honest I'm a bit sick of the sight of them and have started on Valentine's cards

                            So, just got to wrap everything now!

                            I'm so impressed with the uniqueness and quality of everything I've bought - really really pleased! I hope my family thinks the same too!! And fantasic customer service where ever I bought - nothing too much trouble (and a cup of tea from Swirly hehehehe!) and delivery really quick too!

                            So thanks to you all!!
