Banner Time

Waking up to a light sprinkling of snow made me feel so Christmassy this morning, although that soon changed when I got brain freeze on the walk back from school, must get myself a big woolly hat. 
So, what with the snow and all, it may very well still only be November (and I'm not normally one for decking the halls this early), but I've been in the loft and brought down the boxes marked 'XMAS'. I surprised myself at how well packed they were, I must have had a burst of organisation as I packed them away in January. I don't know about you, but I have an expensive addiction..... to Christmas magazines. I've bought so many that I got home on Monday with a shiny new plastic wrapped magazine of Christmas promise only to realise that I'd bought that one already, so that's it now, I am STOPPING with the magazine obsession....I've even kept old Christmas mags from 2007.... please tell me I'm not the only one? 

Anyway, I'm off now to post off an order, I was there the other day with 8 parcels all going Air Mail to various far off destinations (all needing customs labels filled out and proofs of postage) and there was quite a queue forming behind me - but I never look back these days as I know there'll always be a few huffy puffy noises coming from the queue - oops). 
But here's a few new banners in the meantime.....

Hope there's not too much snow where you are today, I ordered 2 new PINK sledges the other day for the girls (of course) just in case we get snowed in again like we did last winter! Have fun.

I have a pile of old Xmas mags too. I haven't succombed yet this year, but I guess that there is still time?... I adore the Merry Christmas banner. Do you have templates for your letters, or do you cut them by hand?xx

thanks hello gorgeous, i've got a couple of bdays to get out of the way first too, I normally put up the decs after them but I may get decking the halls sooner now the boxes are down!

Thanks CraftyHelen, I cut them all by hand but I print out all my own templates from the computer, that way you can make them any size and font you fancy!

I do love snow!
I can't wait to pop our decorations up this year!!!

A bit of snow certainly helps with the Christmas spirit. I don't think I've ever bought a purely Christmas magazine am I really missing out?

oohhh I got a sledge this year too after making my kiddies use trays last year :-) Fab banner - and yes maybe you should give up the mag thing, i haven't bought any Christmas ones yet (well I did buy a cross stitch one that was slight christmassy so that is a bit of a lie). You should just turn to those huffy people in the queue and say 'It is great keeping the post office in business isn't it!'.

Apesar de já não nos falarmos tantas vezes não quer dizer que esqueço...
Mas a vida é complicada e nem sempre dá para visitar toda a gente como gostaria outras vezes da aquela preguiça de escrever um comentário :(
mas quero desejar um feliz 2011 cheio de tudo de bom que tudo o que peças se realize para ti e familia *.* bjkas
