A wild little bouquet that our friends brought to brunch on Sunday.
My mind has been spinning all week with lots and lots of Christmas related project ideas - enough for 2 or 3 Christmases. We're having a small family cookie party on Sunday, which will be a nice way to relax and catch up. And that's probably enough to keep me busy all weekend, but naturally I have a hard time accepting that fact.
I want to: make candy and package it in glassine bags with handmade labels, make Deb's butterscotch sauce and pour it into pretty jars and give them out to people I like, build up my stock of re-useable gift wrap in the hopes of finally having a paper-less Christmas (post to follow next week), wrap all my gifts in said gift wrap, hand print tea towels with my linocuts, buy stocking stuffers, sew handmade ornaments for everyone I know, cover our windows in paper snowflakes, create some sort of beautiful wreath and re-watch the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy (which I've only seen once, in the theater, and which I purchased for myself last week for this very purpose) while doing all these things.
The list will have to be trimmed, but it's nice to dream.
wow, thats quite a list. It sounds like mine! I always have way too much I want to do for Christmas! Good luck!ReplyDelete
marvelous list, rachel. i'm especially fond of the lotr marathon idea. i had my long-overdue re-watch this summer and it was fantastic. happy christmasing!ReplyDelete
sounds perfect really - one of these days i'm going to try to do some of the same.ReplyDelete
haha yes this is that time of year when i panic about gift decisions and try to decide things like - do i have time to make my dad homemade pretzels or should i just buy him wine? we'll make it out the other side, hopefully a few crafts the wiser :-)ReplyDelete
I love the list! It gets me thinkin' :) I believe you'll have a wonderful weekend, regardless of how many of those things you'll cross off your list. By the way, i featured your new tags in my Friday Favorites today!ReplyDelete
I love the bright, cheery colors!ReplyDelete
That's a fun to-do list! Good luck getting it all done, don't forget to enjoy it as you go.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend, Rachel!
That's quite the list! Mine's not quite so long, but I still have to make hot chocolate mix to send to friends, send them to my friends, and finish buying/making and wrapping gifts.ReplyDelete
Deb's butterscotch sounded delicious, didn't it? I've bookmarked so many of her recipes. I should maybe try to make some, huh?
Enjoy your weekend! And Lord of the Rings. I love those movies.
