Getting ready for Christmas

Yes! Christmas 🎄

Soon comes round and here it is looming again ! I am looking forward this year our grandson joes three now and knows all about Christmas so very excited. Even organised with some pressies normally a last minuet person.  Go me !

Every year I make Christmas Sockmonkeys but mainly to order this years different. I will be making some small ones just to sell already bought the socks. Going to be cute starting them this week hopefully. So watch my Facebook page for them. Only doing a few !

Gingernut from last year

So much to do ! Tidying the craft room to make space for production it’s only small so can’t swing a cat never mind a monkey. Funny when I first decorated and made it mine I thought how much room I had, But I soon filled it with crafty things now I can’t move. So today’s action was getting organised.


I would like some space under the table when sewing would be nice. Filled with boxes for posting, display stuff etc … So may have to go in the loft when the Christmas tree comes out. I haven’t done any craft fairs for a long time. But you never know so I will keep hold of them for a bit longer just in case.

Have thousands of beads so a big task of sorting through them as I now make monkeys. I still have my eBay so be selling them and lots of other things I have, some new. That’s a job in its self but has got to go ! Out with the old in with the new. Some of my socks will be going to ones I can’t use. I will share on Facebook if interested.


so hopefully be lots of room for my handmade monkeys. I am working out a better way to take pictures. I normally use my iPad because it’s Easy !  I do have a good camera and be taking some christmas pics. Also not decided what pictures I am useing for my calendar this year need to get that done so lots to do! Before Christmas let’s hope I get it done. I will be doing a blog about taking pictures so please keep watching .
