It’s beginning to look at lot like

…Christmas.

I’ve been talking about Christmas all year, and specifically started working on it in May. I actually put a Christmas tree up in May and engaged people in conversation about their plans for it.

That is my job.

So now I’m getting to the point where I can really, REALLY start to enjoy Christmas, plan my own celebrations, fall in love with decorations and cards depicting snow and wild animals.

Dave and I are going to escape the usual madness by travelling halfway around the world to Papua New Guinea (yes! really!) so I’m equally excited about finding foldable, travel-friendly gifts and decorations. I’ve been assured we’re still having turkey. Phew.

So I also wanted to share some of the awesome stuff over at notonthehighstreet.com – I know, I know, it’s slightly cliché and predictable seeing as I work there. But fortunately I truly believe that there’s some unique and awesome stuff going on over there.

In particular, I recommend checking out the Christmas cards, stockings, advent calendars and decorations. I particularly love these cards by Betsy Benn, these mini frames by Nkuku, and this gorgeous star by Clara and Macy. Laura of Clara and Macy recently used me as a guinea pig for these stars, which I used to celebrate new nephew Teddy. (I met him yesterday and I LOVE him!)

So that’s a little insight into Christmas and some of my Christmas plans! I promise more exciting blog news soon 🙂
