Good morning. hope your all well. Well that's us about half way through October already, where has the month gone, i cant believe we will soon be into November and bonfire night. I get excited for Christmas quite early on but i gauge it buy once Halloween is over and the Guy faux night is over then that when the Christmas count down really does start. it full force Christmas madness for sure. im always one who buys Christmas presents as i see them throughout the year. May aswell buy the things someone will like as and when you see them, plus it makes it a lot easier on the bank card. Ever year i put my tree up at the end of November so i have all of December with my tree and decorations up and then once i have all my presents bought or most of them, i spend the day wrapping them with the Christmas music on as well as some film. i do get fed up after a couple of hours. More excited this year as last year in the sales i bought brand new tree and decorations so my flat will be alot more elegant. more so cause i redone my living room. only problem is that its a 7 foot tree in a small living room. oh well, if anyone can make it fit and work, i can haha.
Anyways, back to the Calendars. As from my December calendar blog the other week, i will be making a calendar month each week on the lead up to the new year. 2 weeks ago was a very busy week for me with commission cards and Hunkydory Design team cards so i never gone round to November but fear not, i spend a lovely afternoon the other making both months ready to blog, has so much fun. Although this is a calender and it will be hanging, i do still like an element of hight and dimention so have used 1mm foam pad sheets. The products i have used are as followed;
