27 days til Christmas

I'm being organised for Christmas this year as Christmas snuck up on me last year (not sure how that happened.... pretty sure Christmas is on the same date every year and pretty sure after 26 Christmas' I should know, but nonetheless).  I ended up staying up til 3am one night making gingerbread cookies for Tom's grandparents.  They were delicious, but this Christmas I would like some sleep.

To give myself some inspiration I looked back at last Christmas and the stuff I did.

Fibre optic tree my flatmate got from Kmart for I think $20

Snowflakes I made from paper

Christmas coloured Hersheys kisses in a jar which I wrapped with Christmas ribbon

Making gingerbread for Tom's grandparents

Every year for the extended family Christmas Eve we have a colour theme and everyone has to come dressed in the colour theme.  A few years ago it was red & white, last year was green, and this year will be blue and silver so I've decided to adopt this blue and silver theme with other Christmas-y things this year.

Have you started thinking about Christmas yet?


  1. Haven't even got started on Christmas this year - everyone else seems to have already decorated and shopped and baked :( Love your gingerbread cookies, so cute!

    1. Hehe thanks - the gingerbread cookies were a hit! I completely forgot one of Tom's grandparents is diabetic until months after Christmas :$

  2. Love your snowflakes.. I didn't even try last year. I should start with the baking right?

    1. I'm going to do the snowflakes again this year in blue and white/silver.

  3. You stayed up until 3 baking cookies... totally something I would do to! But your cookies look amazing, so at least there is that! The sacrifices we make for holiday crafting right?

    By the way, thank you for checking out my blog and the advice on Photobucket... I think I am going to try it out!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment :)
