Press it up

18Nov09

Today is A’s birthday today and I will attempt to bake a Black Forest Cake (apparently his favourite – I did not attempt to bake it last year but since I’m not working I can spare the time today).

It also dawned on me that Christmas is just around the corner! Yikes! A little bit more than a month away! I’m so not one of those types that buys all of the gifts a month in advance…more like a week or a few days before. I have a war-like strategy: I write down all the people I need to buy for, set aside money for each prezzie, spend ONE day (maybe TWO if need be but not more) and buy all of the presents. I **LOVE** shopping but I detest malls 😦 I much prefer small boutiques and one of a kind stores.

Searching through blogs today – I came upon Piller Box who blogged about a gorgeous letterpress gift set by Blue Pool Road. If you read my blog – you’ll see that I’m a total lover of letterpress!

Lovely isn’t it? Makes me want to re-think my Christmas War Strategy!
