24 hours is not enough

I think I need about 48 hours in each day to try and get on top of things, plus about 10 extra hours just for sleeping. That would be nice.
I have been itching to do some scrapping but just haven't quite got there yet. I did pull out some old foam stamps which I haven't used in ages. to do this little 'tag'. My niece is turning one next week. I know this isn't a very 'baby girl' looking package, but I'm sure Abby won't care. I stamped on to one of those cheap paper doilies you can get at the supermarket. And at the risk of making myself looking like some kind of freak, I'll show this. It's just a little note book for Christmas stuff, like what I might get for certain people for gifts, what I've already got, Christmas food I might make. When you start Christmas shopping as early as I do, the closer it gets to Christmas you can start forgetting what you've actually bought. So then you just keep buying (I'm talking about buying for the kids) and end up with more than you really planned to. So I have to write down what I've already got so things don't get out of control.
I do this because I LOVE Christmas. Love it. I just made this from scraps, it's not something I'll keep but I just wanted it to look nice while I'm using it.
Looking at it now though it, ah, looks like I have sewn toilet paper on to it.
It's actually crepe paper, not dunny paper.
Seemed like a good idea at the time.

I'm a Christmas junkie too lol. I normally have notes around the place with lists of what i've bought who but maybe i should make something a bit nicer like yours from now on. It looks great.

The doilly tag looks really good too.

Brenda love what you have done. Doillys are so handy. I purchased a lot as well for my scrapping.

I can relate about the time to get everything done. I am hopeless. I think if I had triple the time I would not get everything done I would just procrastinate more :)

I'm a Christmas freak too. I can't wait to get all my decorations up this year with Jack being the age he is. He kind of knew what was going on last year but I think this year he will be super excited.
