After my two big pieces were done, around the end of November, I realised I should start planning and organising my xmas cards and gifts. We were tight for money so I decided to give handmade cards as gifts along with my home-made gingerbread cookies and yum-yum-balls which everyone always seems to enjoy. Unfortunately the xmas cards took my a lot longer than they should have, I only finished all of them roughly a week before xmas which left me spending the next few days and nights baking like a mad woman (it was often too hot during the day to bake, gotta love aussie xmas’!). I’d like to think I’m reasonably organised, but I do often underestimate how much time I need to complete things. I’m really happy with how most of them turned out.
