Serious cases of LMSC (Last Minute Sisyphus Crafting) and FPSD (Frantic Preparation Stress Disorder) over here. Not so well organized. As usual.
First things first though - I promised (myself to get) Nancy some Christmas market pictures and, in my last post, I told you about Miss M wanting to sew.
So the christmas market - I went to a nice one last week that had a medieval theme going on. Great enterainment: story tellers, acrobats, fire-eaters, magicians, music, cute stands where you could buy your own sword and medieval gowns made of mud coloured scratchy wool. Unfortunately I forgot my camera.
Yesterday it was shopping time and I strolled by the Christmas market at the Marienplatz. Now, you go and try to make a nice picture over there. One capturing the essence of a cosy Christmas market - you'll probably still be waiting for "The Magical Moment" long after Easter. Sorry Nancy, I have a feeling I'll have to leave this one to another year...
Miss M. ,in the mean time, made the cutest (I think) gift tags for her two "Omas".
I'm sure they will be delighted seeing and reading them. This really started off some grand scale tag and card making in our house. So, although I don't have a present for everyone yet, there still are no cookies, there is no wrapping paper, the inspiration section of my website looks like a desert, the tax office is waiting....it's all good because: I have my gift tags ready!
A very happy Christmas to you!
