Just Around the Corner

by Josée

This Sunday marks the first day of Advent which means Christmas is just around the corner. Things may appear quiet, but I’ve been hard at work. I still have a few Advent preparations to finish and many Christmas presents to make for the Handmade Christmas Challenge. In the last couple weeks there has been a lot of knitting and sewing around here. But the more I accomplish, the most it seems there is to do… perhaps because I keep on adding things to my to-do list.

Once Advent begins I will start sharing with you some of the Christmas gifts that I’ve made. Please, don’t get the impression that all my gifts will be handmade. I don’t think I have the time or talent to write books or make movies, but dishcloths I can definitely make. So keep posted.

If you are thinking of celebrating the feast of St. Nicholas (December 6th) here are a few more ideas, but be sure to check out the St. Nicholas Center. Also, I will be hosting a Jesse Tree link-up starting next week for those of you that would like to share your Jesse Tree set-ups and ideas.

Look at all that snow! Lovely. I'm afraid we have little going on for Advent this year. I hope I can still celebrate a little w/ the children, despite the packing & moving. Can you believe I'm STILL simplifying even MORE?? It's insane. =l
