Not in my studio: full-scale Christmas panic

One of our helpers decorating the tree
I would like to pretend that I am super-organised and super-together.  But the honest truth is I’m not.  Especially not at Christmas.  I had a lovely plan, including what blog entries I would be writing over last week and this, but it has all gone out the window as I have dissolved into my normal Christmas panic meltdown!  I still believe it is fine to ignore Christmas until after 10th December, which was the magic date in my family as it is my sister’s birthday and why should it get pushed out for Christmas.  However, there is only so much magic Santa’s elves can manage on their own and buying/cooking/decorating the house for Christmas seems like a full-time job at the moment.

However, the Christmas present baking is finished, the parcels have been (almost) all sent, some cards have been written and I’ve even managed some wrapping.  But the downside is, I’ve no time to work or blog!
Some Chili and Thyme Crackers ready for the oven

So I’m admitting Christmas defeat and settling down to full-time Christmas organisation, then I’m actually having a break – yes no work until the kids go back to school and R goes back to work – we’ll see if I can manage it!  I hope you and your loved ones have an amazing Christmas/ festive holidays and that 2014 will be a wonderful year for you all.

I’ll be back raring to go in the New Year, with lots of new ideas, techniques and work to share with you.  See you then.

The chili and thyme crackers are an inspiration - surely they count towards the obligatory Christmas baking? I've made only one lot of traditional biscuits this year and am feeling guilty (and incomplete) ... hence the special interest in the crackers....
Happy holidays! m
