Is Christmas ready for you?
We don't go overboard with shopping and activities, and I've actually got time to enjoy Christmas - I'm no longer at my temp job! Since the weather is horrible, I'm sort of hibernating and taking it easy. And when I say "taking it easy" I mean l-a-z-y. Here's my typical To-Do list:

I got a sudden inspiration from Pinterest when I saw that an Altoid-size tin holds six Dove chocolates. Groovy, I thought, I'm gonna make some little gifts for my book group! After all, I had PLENTY of tins to work with.
So I pulled out some old Christmas cards I'd saved, and some washi tape, and voila!
Then I decided to make some for the various people who will be at our Christmas dinner. (Our extended family this year will include my sister's stepson's partner's father's girlfriend - did ya get all that?) I had a few more old cards, and more washi tape, and some ribbons and stuff, so this time I made them into hanging ornaments.
Each one holds six chocolates.
The best part is that there are chocolates left over for me!
Wishing you all happy holidays, and sharing the wise words of Julian of Norwich:
"All shall be well, and all shall be well,
And all manner of thing shall be well."
