Christmas lights

December has certainly snuck up on me, I can't believe we're almost three weeks away from christmas!
I have been feeling very festive and finished my christmas shopping today. I got a lot of it online because it is easy and no stress and I made my very first ebay purchase the other day in preparation for my christmas wrapping. I bought some red and white twine, and have been making some little tags out of fimo. I'm planning on doing a lot of christmas baking to give as gifts, so I'd put the little star charms tied with the twine around the cellophane bags full of yummy treats! I made some glittery stars which you can see in the photos from cardboard, PVA and of course glitter. I'll hole punch these and add to my wrapping as well :) I am so excited to get wrapping and baking, although I think a lot of it will have to be made quite close to christmas. I have so many recipes saved in my binders on various websites, and some of them are freezable so hopefully I can get started soon.

I love December! I can tell it will be a good month. I've got my work christmas do on Sunday evening, a meal at a posh hotel which I'm looking forward to. A deadline on Wednesday and then I'm off on a day trip to London on Thursday! Is there anything I should see when I'm there? I've only ever been to London about 3 times, so I'm rather clueless! I've a busy week ahead, so I really need to stop procrastinating. Have a good weekend! <3
