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.

Phew!

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.

xo.

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!
