It's official.... I've started listening to Christmas music. The Santa Claus Parade in Toronto was yesterday and I've used that parade for years to mark when I can officially start singing along to my favourite Christmas music.
I had it on in the car this morning on the way to drop something off at Alex's school that he forgot to take with him this morning. I enjoyed it immensely!
I love the music I remember from my childhood... Nana Mouskouri, Boney M, The Carpenters, Kenny and Dolly... and I've added in some great new stuff too like Barenaked Ladies, Robert Downey Jr, Crash Test Dummies. My Christmas music taste is *very* ecclectic.
Making Christmas cards has been different for me this year. I've been participating in Tracy's Christmas card challenge making 5 cards a month since January (although I actually started later than that!), plus I've made a few cards here and there. Instead of playing, trying to find the perfect card to mass produce, I will be sending out various different cards to people.
Different for me, but not a bad thing (except when someone says "I love the card you sent" and I have no idea what card I sent LOL!).
Mercy's blog, I knew what I wanted to do. I love it when cards come together like that.

The only thing I am not thrilled with is the skinny burgundy layer... I should have decorated it with a different Cuttlebug folder or something...
