5 weeks to Christmas...aghhhhh....ba humbug!

Yes 5 weeks to day it's Christmas Eve! Not a nice thought IMHO. I've started my Christmas shopping, we've set a date to do the rest at Lakeside and today I got my Christmas card supply box from the loft so I can make a start in writing them out. I'll take them to work at the weekend as it's my weekend to work and hopefully I'll get quite a few done. I've made quite a few as well and I found the ones I'd lost that I made a few months ago, never of thought of looking for them where I actually found them. LOL
I had my birthday recently and asked for money as I wanted to buy a Raskog Trolley from Ikea for my craft room and here it is.
It's quite big and holds loads, most of it came off my desk. It's on wheels too so moves around well.
Saturday I've a table at the local WI's Christmas Bazaar at Lorraine Victory Hall, Ship Lane, Bramford from 1-4pm if you are in the area. I've been busy making Christmas cards and all occasion cards to sell.

There'll be lots of different stalls there so come along if you're about.
The Bramford Christmas Crop is on Saturday 14th December 9am-6pm. Think I've got some of our ladies talking trying to find out what the big main prize of the day is.......ha ha, no one but me knows! Lets just say who ever is the lucky person to go home with it will be very pleased..............there's also loads of other prizes up for grabs throughout the day.

Well it's now 5.09pm and I've lots to do before I leave for work at 7pm.

Have a great week.

A busy weekend ahead.

Nothing to show you as I've been busy and still am making Christmas Cards and other cards as I'm doing a Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday 23rd November. It's at our local hall Lorraine Victory Hall Bramford Ipswich 1-4pm. Come along if you are in the area.
It's my weekend in at work, so I'm working tonight and Sunday night. No sleep for me tomorrow as I'm off to Tina's craft day at Bulmer Nr Sudbury, which I am looking forward to. I hope to get more cards made. In the evening Andy and I are out for a meal with his work collegues as one of them has now retired. Sunday I'm hoping number one son calls round......well he needs to drop off his car. He's off to Cyprus to work for the winter as his Thomson work has now finished until March, so I will have his car until he returns.
Next Saturday it's the monthly Papermaze crop. The Bramford December/Christmas crop is on Saturday 14th December, a week later than normal. 9am-6pm.............should be a good day, prizes to be won all day too.
I've started my Christmas shopping, got a few pressies anyway. Just trying to decide when we go to Lakeside to do the main shop.
Did you see Lou Collins on Create & Craft? Didn't she do well, I emailed in and had my email read out on yesterday mornings 9am show.!

Well have a good weekend.
