Handmade Christmas

Shhhhhhh I hate to admit it but I have been thinking about Christmas.  "It is still August !" I hear you cry.
Well the truth be told I love the seasons of Autumn and Winter, there is nothing more cosy than snuggling down at the end of the day when it is cold outside and this generally leads to Christmas.
During the last few weeks we have been out and about and I have seen things that would make lovely christmas presents for our nearest and dearest, but it also made me think about what I would like to do for christmas presents this year.   I have decided to try and make as much as possible this year, I have actually already bought a couple of gifts but I may try and make a little something to go with them too.
We give gifts to quite alot of family and some friends so I am going to start with the family gifts (cant post them on here as family will read it, but might post the odd sneaky picture).
I also have lots and lots of card making things. Years ago I used to make cards by the dozen but havent made one in ages. I thought that I would also make a start on the christmas cards too.  So according to the countdown I have looked at there are 118 days until christmas, there is plenty of time !! Ha Ha, better get my skates on I think !

Are you planning for christmas yet ?

Hey, I'm going to try and make some things for Christmas too but not sure exactly how much will get done ... when you say 118 days it just seems like nothing doesn't it ?

Oh I'm definitely Christmas planning already! I already bought a main (shared) present for the children, and have started making gifts. :)

We're making shell candles, small bound journals, glass marble fridge magnets, bleach painted tshirts... And I'm knitting hats and mittens, and making some beaded jewellery!

Glad to know I am not alone with the planning ;-)
You sound more organised than me, I have yet to decide on what to make although I have a few ideas.
