Christmas is coming ! Handmade happiness :)

Last year we had begun preparing for Christmas around this time . Shopping for presents and wrapping them , making the cards and posting them , a few handmade ornaments and decorations, getting the sweets ready , baking …… the daunting list was easy to handle and with some good planning we had a fun festive season. This year I am not too sure about the cards and we may cut down on the sweets too. I seem to have no energy and the hub is having a super busy time . I hope we can still do most of the stuff we usually do in preparation for the best time of the year . For now, I am listening to a few carols and looking at last year’s festive fun .

A few cards we made last to send out to family and friends.

  1. I was scrolling down and smiling at how beautiful the cards are and then the GOAN BAATH STOLE MY HEART AWAY!!! 😉
    I really do hope you have the time and energy to do all that and more this year and that you have a wonderful Christmas. It’s a festival that comes only once a year, don’t shy away from making it a beautiful memory 🙂
