Well it's that time of the year again. I just love Christmas. I love the excitement. Jarred and Kloe are so enthusiastic about making Christmas things. I have lots of projects planned. We started last weekend. We made a Lolly Wreath. Lots of lollies, got eaten in the process. We baked Gingerbread men and mini Christmas cupcakes. I pulled out all the Christmas soft toys and decorations. On Sunday we put up the tree. One month exactly to Christmas. We usually wait until the 1st, but we couldn't wait (Me included)
Our Tree by night - it is so pretty

I have also been very busy making lots of handmade gifts and special Christmas items. Here are our Christmas Stockings I made last week. They are all handsewn.
Another project is these little Poppets to hang on the Christmas Tree.
And some more Tree decorations.
I have been busy creating lots of other things, but I can't show you those. You will have to wait until Christmas.
This weekend we are going to put up the outdoor lights. We are going to make Reindeer Candy Canes, Lolly Christmas Trees and Christmas Cards.
Today Jarred and I have baked Shortbread and Chocolate Brownie Slice complete with red, green and white sprinkles.
Yes, we have all gone a little Christmas Mad!!
