In the beginning..

In the beginning, there was Pinterest and it was good. It was full of Christmas crafts and cute ideas and super fun crafts and easy ideas with kids and it made my head explode a little with the possibilities and with the time and effort people put into doing crafts, and photographing them and uploading instructions to the internet.

I love Christmas. I really do. I love the idea of crafts too. And the idea of Christmas crafts. So here I am. This Christmas is particularly exciting for me as I am going to Dublin (where I am from) and will be with my family for Christmas which we hadn't really planned on until my mum twisted (my rubber) arm and convinced me. I haven't told the Zeds yet as the excitement would be too much for Z1 so I have been bubbling over with excitement and telling random mothers at the school gate and the like about it in order to have an outlet. And I've been browsing Pinterest. And now, here I am...as I said before.

So I shall set out to plan some crafts over the weeks to come and be ready to begin on the 1st of December - probably with some kind of countdown calendar. But be warned, I am not a naturally crafty person and the Zeds will be my excuses for having things turn out a bit wonky. As a special preview and visual warning, here are some pictures of Christmas craftiness from last year.
