Two Weeks Until Christmas (whoo boy!)

Taken with my NEW iphone!

Two weeks remain until Christmas.  Two!  And I am behind.  Not only am I behind but I'm taking on additional projects.  Yesterday I knit a baby hat for a neighbor (the little guy is having surgery tomorrow and I simply couldn't let him go to the hospital without his very own hand knit).

And I'm knitting a horai scarf.  My picture doesn't do it justice. Click the link.  This, too, is a gift.  A long time nurse at my allergist's office is retiring just before the holiday.  I've seen her every two weeks for the past five years; clearly she deserves a going away present.

Today I'm also hoping to finish the gifts for my nieces and nephews and get those in the mail.  This means some sewing and cooking up playdough.

I also have a package to ship and a camera (a super cool SX 70 model 2 polaroid) to list in the shop.  C'mon sales!  Santa could use a bump in his Christmas fund.  

Speaking of Santa yesterday we finally got our tree.  It's a family tradition -- we pick up a permit from the forest service and cut one down ourselves.  Our trees are always a little haphazard.  A tad imperfect and oh so right.

I've also made our annual holiday greeting -- a slide show of the year.  In years past I've burned DVDs and mailed them out.  This year we are streamlining and going digital.


Now I'd best get to it.  If I can get all out of town presents made, packaged and shipped this week things will be good.

Note to self:  start getting ready for the holidays earlier next year (as in January).  Yes.  That would be an excellent idea.

Its so nice blog! i have a topic its related to bunk bed with full size bottom Are you looking for beds for adults/kids/ room that will last for many years? Are you shopping for a toddler bed, but don't want to spend the money on it knowing that your child will outgrow it in a few years? Are you planning on purchasing a bunk bed for your kids in the future, but don't want to buy it just yet because they are too young for it? Then, the eco-friendly classic bunk bed (a.k.a. Children's Four-In-One Sleep System) may be what you're looking for....

I totally hear you. One moment, we had LOADS of time for holiday preparation and then--zing! Where'd the time go? Suddenly right around the corner. The horai scarf looks marvelous!
