Twas the night before Christmas (eve)

It's just busy, busy, busy around these parts. I'm sure it must be the same for you too! Sorry to all of the lovely blogs I follow (and there are a few!) I am desperately trying to keep up to date but... well you know how it is!

These are the little hearts that I shared last week, they all finished and I really like them. I think I may make more:

I am currently working on two special requests for two sweet gals I know, K & D:

I am making bedding for the dolls houses they are currently working on, I'm almost there K & D if you are reading this  

I am up to the 20th in my journal so I will share some each day until we are up to date otherwise this will be one loooonnnngggg post! (it maybe anyway, Lol!)

Day 16:

Day 17:
 It arrived! I was waiting on a gift from America for Steve and it turned up today and is already under the tree, I had my doubts as to whether it would turn up in time due to the weather we have been having but it made it!

Now for a movie update:

on the 18th we watched:

the 19th:

Seriously funny!

the 20th:


I decorated the Christmas cake today too so I will share that and the mince pies (and more pages) tomorrow. I will probably be full of beans tomorrow as it will then be one more sleep!

Thankfully my to-do list is quite short:
  1. Make eggnog
  2. Drink Eggnog in the evening
  3. Eat Mince pies
  4. Be merry (not drunk merry!)
  5. Leave Santa some mince pies and Brandy
  6. Leave Rudolph the reindeer food Adam made
Well I'm off to put the little ones to bed, see you tomorrow!

The hearts really are fantastic! I too am struggling to get around to everyone's blogs this week - such a busy time of the year but I think we are all in the same boat!

In Norway, the 23rd December is called 'Little Christmas Eve' - isn't that lovely? We've adopted that in our household now, too :-)

More gorgeous pages, and the hearts are very beautiful! Merry Christmas to you and yours, Rachel xx
