Waiting Patiently for December

I've been neglecting the blog this week, bad me! So here's an update of what I've been doing :)

Main thing was getting started on making my christmas cards. I've not really done much card making this year, mostly due to the fact that I need to keep all my supplies neatly packed away so by the time I've got them all out and am ready start the mood/inspiration has passed! And then I have to pack them all away again. Anyway, made a good few christmas cards this week, cheated a little bit with card toppers, cute christmas papers and peel offs and some decoupage I had left from a couple of years ago but it's the thought that counts right? Making cards is easy though, it's just choose, cut, stick! Very relaxing and fulfilling.

Also had a quick go with the Fimo, wasn't very happy with the results though. I think it's just because I've seen so many amazing pictures online I get annoyed that I can't make something like that even though it's my first try! I need to learn to not give up so quickly and practice more. I also decided I didn't like the colours I had so will pick up a few more blocks sometime and try again.

Finally I made some flapjack. I got the recipe from the internet, it didn't really turn out like I expected but it's still nice. Was supposed to be sultana and chocolate chip but all the chocolate melted when I mixed in the hot syrup mix, need to remember to leave the choc chips out until last next time!

Really looking forward to December, I plan on doing lots of christmas baking. I've seen the most adorable snowmen cookies that I want to try and would especially love to have a go at making a gingerbread house as I've never done it before! So hurry up and get here December so I can crack out the christmas music and get in the kitchen
