A lovely warm. sunny day here in Hertfordshire :).
If you read this blog at all regularly you'll know I have a bit of a problem talking about Christmas too early in the year. I just can't bring myself to make C-cards in the Summer - it's just NOT right! Actually, I don't like starting to make them till after my birthday in the middle of September - to my way of thinking it's still Summer till then and not a time to be thinking of cold manky weather and long dark nights.
It's also a fact that if I make C-cards earlier than the Autumn I rarely like them and those ones are either left unsent in the box or go straight to the bin without passing Go.
So it was with mixed emotions that I opened my new DT kit from Bubbly Funk.
On the one hand the papers and extra goodies are absolutely beautiful - well they are based around one of the MME collections and at the moment MME can do no wrong, can they?
On the other hand the collection in question is called "Colourful Christmas"
aaaaaggggggh, or oooooohhh? I'm soooo confused!
I think I need a bit more time before getting into the C- card making zone, so I've dipped a toe into the water of "thinking about Christmas" and made myself a little memo block to sit on my desk. The plan is that now I have a place to jot down gift ideas for me as well as other people, ideas for crafty things, reminders on what I need to buy, and any other seasonal notes I might want to keep safe. I've got a useless memory and forget most "good ideas" that I might have, so maybe this notepad and it's own matching pencil might help me be super-organised this year. Yep, I know.... that would be in my dreams lol
If you're interested in seeing how I made this little memo block, pop over to Bubbly Scrumptious (the emag for the Bubbly Funk Shop) and you'll find all the project notes for this and many other carfty makes listed there. The new kit will be available soon from Bubbly Funk
I hope you like it - it's dead easy to make too!
Lastly, I thought I'd join in again with "What's on you desk Wednesday" - I know its Thursday but this is exactly how I left my desk yesterday and what I have to face when I pluck up the courage. Julia seems to think that my desk is the wobbly white background on the photos in the post below hahaha, no, that's the little photo "lab" I do most of my pics in.
No, I have this truly spectacular mess on my craft desk..........
So, do you dare to share? Your own desk, that is?
Thanks for visiting today, I hope the sun is shining where you are too
