It's that time of year again, where I think how much I would love to do project life, then realise I have no money to buy anything.

I had to do it. I had to share my Christmas with you. I worked the nights of Christmas eve and Day, so my festivities were a little fragmented. But the important thing was that little lady got a Thomas from santa.
Lots of food was eaten, tummies were full and laughs were had.

Does anyone else find that? I spend so long looking and longing at other artists projects and products that I find I don't have time for my own! And they never live up to my expectations! I keep meaning to try project life but never get around to it. I keep meaning to try and make a December Daily album but never get around to it...can you see a pattern?
Don't procrastinate, do!
Yesterday we went to a big localish farm centre and we visited Santa. We made reindeer food, saw reindeer, had mince pies and finally met a real Santa. We even came away with a really lovely gift.
The centre also had a restored carousel, which we went on. Not a good idea when you get travel sick...

I wanted to scrap something for Darwin, and found the perfect layout on the October Afternoon blog by Shanna Noel http://octoberafternoon.typepad.com/october_afternoon/2014/11/tuesday-inspiration-head-in-the-clouds.html. I loved the simplicity of the layout but also wanted to include journalling, so I added the journalling to the back.
Please excuse the poor lighting.

My sister's wedding was Friday. Yes, Friday October 31! Poor E had had a temperature the day before so wasn't feeling her best, and didn't really want to play bridesmaid (as it happens, she was icky the next day too). Poor mite even ended up falling asleep at the dinner table.

We're still feeling sad about Darwin's passing, so I've been filling my time with crochet.
I finally finished E's dress but it wouldn't go over her.head, so I unpicked the shoulders and added buttons
I've also been adding to my scrappy blanket. Love the open effect of the 4ply.

I recently started a new crochet project from a recent issue of Inside Crochet. It's a dress for E designed by Frank and Olive. The pattern called for Rico Creative Cotton Aran, which I happened to have a selection if. I decided on two oranges and to do a stripey top...but it was only after starting that I realised I may have ended up dressing E like a pumpkin!

This week I had to take our cat into vet hospital, as his kidneys weren't working properly. He's been on a drip for 36 hours now and his bloods are slowly returning to normal. But we really miss him! Even though he's a pain there's something missing right now.
Hoping he can come home soon.
