Ok kids, now don’t panic but there is only 1 month until Christmas Eve! If you’re anything like me you’re now sitting with your fingers stuck in your ears, yelling “LALALALALALA I’M NOT LISTENING!!!!!”
As usual for this time of year Joey’s House looks a lot more like some kind of manic workshop than a house. There are partially done projects in various media hanging around all over the place. Painted ornaments to be given as gifts.
Tangled up piles of knitting.
Embroidery started in a fit of inspiration, but then left aside when the Muse’s eye was caught by something sparkly.
Piles of cookbooks hauled out in search of that perfect something – either to eat or give. So far it’s Shrimp Gyoza and Lime Meltaway Cookies in case you’re wondering.
A kitchen that is always in a state of disaster as food related gifts fight for valuable counter space with regular meals. This is sweet potato baby food puree for a friend’s baby who will soon be enjoying such delicacies. It looks delicious, I know, but consider it as a gift of time for the new mom who can now nap instead of pureeing one afternoon.
This weekend’s activities have indicated that we must be coming to the end of it all though, as we drew up some little figures to adorn our holiday gift tags.
The one on the top is Joey, as drawn by Punky Pie, if he were an angel. Just in case you were wondering what he looks like.
