Slightly Panicked…

Is there really only 9 days before Christmas??? I haven’t even made my Xmas cards yet – yikes! Every year, I try to make my own cards, and at least I have an idea for this year’s cards, thanks to Claudine Hellmuth. She has a video demonstration on her blog showing how she does her whimsical collages. I think I may just attempt something similar and make Xmas postcards out of them. Here’s the video:

I finished the handmade books I was working on the other day. They look very pretty – I love the paper I used for the covers, and the mixed papers for the inside pages. I’m quite happy with them.

Today I’m off to the Last Minute Craft Fair here in Toronto. I’m hoping to score some goodies for gifts (for myself and others). I really, really need to make a dent in my Christmas shopping, although I don’t plan on going anywhere near a mall today or tomorrow. As ironic as it may seem, I’m a special events coordinator who at one time organized events for 300,000 people, and yet I hate hate hate crowds. Especially crowds of people wandering aimlessly and confusedly with their small, tired children (in mega-sized strollers) in tow. It’s a surefire way to make ME cranky too.

Bah humbug.
