Christmas/ December 22 Blog Carnival

I'm writing this before the week is suddenly over! I've been busy with work, although not as busy as before, and shopping, and trying to find time to create!

Christmas traditions
Christmas Eve we go to the candlelight service at church. Then we come home, have snacks and hang out, we usually end up opening a present each.

This will be my first Christmas Eve night not sleeping at my parents house. When I lived far away, I'd be there on vacation. Now I live close by with my baby (kitten) who doesn't get to go.

Christmas Day I'm usually woken up by people wanting to open presents right away. I wonder if I'll get wake up phone calls at 6am this time around... We exchange gifts and hang out some more, then do a big family lunch.

This year we'll also do Christmas stuff later for the people who don't get to be there on the day of.

I don't have Christmas themed items in my shop right now, but I do have lots of things that would make great gifts!
