Christmas Planning

Every year, when it gets to December, I always feel that I could do with more time to plan our Christmas celebrations. It's my favourite time of the year, but, there's never enough time to make all the things I want to make, to come up with ideas for entertainment and to plan menus.

So this year I thought I would be amazingly organised and have a Christmas planning day earlier in the year so that I can start formulating my ideas.  And what better date for such a day than 25th June - exactly six months to Christmas.

So yesterday, I dug out all my all Christmas magazines...

...and immersed myself in thoughts of Christmas.

What a wonderful day.

Pinterest gave me lots of lovely ideas for cards and decorations.  Here are just a few of the images I've collected for inspiration.

I've written in my Christmas planning notebook all my ideas and I've even drawn up a schedule of when I want to start making things so that it isn't all last minute.  I am so well organised, I've impressed myself!

And glancing through my Christmas magazines, in one of the copies from 2008, I came across a photo of my niece in a toy advert that I had forgotten all about.

I'm particularly keen to knit a little pixie...

I might just start one sooner rather than later.

I'm also planning on testing some new recipes - for cakes of course.

This year Christmas is going to be so awesome!!!!!!
