Great post - so you are all ready huh? Well can you jump in your car and drive over here then - as I am still knee deep in parcels to wrap, cakes to ice - now I am just off to make some more mincemeat slices, and two more cards!

Oh, and I have more things to make for the three hampers I am doing too, and I still haven't done my own Christmas arrangments - well not all the ones I wanted to do!
