Every night I go to bed, I have thoughts swirling in my head. Things to do. Scrapbook pages I want to create. Gifts I want to make. Skills I want to learn. And, of course, daily happenings that I don't want to forget, but invariably will by tomorrow morning, only to pop up in a random thought weeks down the road. So, here I am. I may use this blog daily to empty my head and heart before cuddling up in my duvet, or as it may be, I may write in it once a month. Who knows. It is for me, but perhaps something I write or learn may spark a fire in someone else. Perhaps it may quiet a mind or make you feel like you are not alone out there. It is for me. But perhaps it is for you.

2011 Christmas Ideas

It is officially Christmas 2010, and as I think about this year and my good intentions, I thought it best to have a place where I could write my Christmas ideas for next year that I can refer back to...

November 2011:
  • Start making Christmas cards from Kai's art
  • begin preparing the advent calendar that I so dearly want to do when Kai is older.  It is a cross between the action cards seen on aliedwards.com (pictured above) and a small daily activity with all the supplies included in the advent pocket that I saw on a blog that I was browsing (sorry, forget the site!)
  • order or make a similar garland as made by anastasiajaminhome on Etsy
  • craft some felt ornaments with my class as seen on this website (http://rosylittlethings.com/walkwoodspattern.html) and as also pictured above (I can't figure out how to insert pictures where I want them yet)
That's all for now, although I am pretty sure I'll add more later!
