Jack is joining in in the frantic Christmas present making ... let it not be said that kitties do not get in on the festivities.

Christmas Christmas Christmas!

Happy 1st of December, everyone!

My, it's been busy round these
parts lately. The pictures (to be randomly positioned by my ShoZu 'portable blogger' App, fingers crossed they don't make it look like I wrote this after drinking too many glasses of mulled wine!) were taken yesterday.

from left to right (or top to bottom, who knows?):

- 1st card for 2011, winging its way out the door!

- wide shot of the advent calendar
Grainy ... but I'm SO proud!

- close-up of one of the advent envelopes

I'm knackered. 34 DIY cards & 24 little envelopes later & I am DONE with paper crafting for a while. The idea was to use mostly recycled materials - so old Xmas gift tags, old wrapping paper, pizza menus, etc. I guess, in the end, it was 50/50 as I had to buy card blanks & pretty paper so the whole lot didn't look too much like a toddler's First Art Project.

Friends & family will be receiving their cards after they're posted this weekend (there's a lot of actual card-writing yet to be done, urg).

Happy 1st of December!!
