As I type this we are in the middle of a heatwave – in fact the lady doing the weather forecast on the TV just now said we had the hottest day of the year on Monday. Very soon Wimbledon will be starting, and we’ll be cheering on Andy Murray while watching the crowd in their straw hats tucking into their strawberries and cream, fanning themselves in a desperate attempt to keep cool. So naturally at this time of year our thoughts turn to …
I know it sounds crazy at first, and I don’t want to alarm anyone, but now really is the time to start thinking about making Christmas cards. If you don’t believe me, consider this:
As from today there are 186 ‘sleeps’ til Christmas. 186 days is approximately 26 weeks. How many crafting sessions can a busy person fit in to their schedule? Perhaps one a week?
Then think about how many Christmas cards do you intend to send out? One hundred? Two hundred? Let’s say it’s a hundred, minimum.
That means you just have 26 crafting sessions in which to make one hundred Christmas cards! And that’s not taking into account those other ‘must make’ cards, such as birthday cards for friends and family, that we have to fit in to those 26 sessions.
I know I’ve just typed, ‘I don’t want to alarm anyone’, but I’m beginning to frighten myself now! It’s time to get cracking on my Christmas cards… when I can find the time of course…!
