it's started

deep in concentration, cutting out the tree cover half way through completion
the final product, may add a bit of ribbon ,not sure yet though as this one Seamus made is for a male.












the official countdown to Christmas. Ill prepared as I always seem to be at least the school teachers gifts have had a start made on them, mainly thanks to Seamus not going to school today. not that he was really sick or anything, just worn out I think, I couldn't wake him this morning and he had been up a lot throughout the night with bad dreams. I know myself how hard it is to concentrate without much sleep so I'm sure a small person has even less coping mechanisms. He wasn't going to get much benefit from school the way he was and a day at home with Mum seemed just the cup of tea.
I took these photos and a few others for my countdown to Christmas album
inpired by the one ali edwards made. Mine's nothing as elaborate as hers but will still serve it's purpose, to keep a record of the events in our home leading up to Christmas day. I will post some photos of it tomorrow, hopefully with a few of these pics in them. I am so thinking maybe I need to ask santa for one of the little epson picturemates, just so I can print photos for these type of projects quickly at home without having to go to the trouble of always changing the settings on my main printer(that and a prepaid wireless mobile thingy)Mmmm, I wonder will he listen.
