I need more hours in the day!

Or I need to be less ambitious with my presents. I decided to make a Blurb book for someone and it is taking me a LOT longer than I thought, it is almost done and I am aiming to get it finished so I can snag the $10 off deal.
After the usual chores and shopping we got in and Ebi-kun decided he wanted to do some writing. I used the idea of Little-Ns to make a book and label the pictures. We don't have a project on the go at the moment so it will just be a random picture-word book. It is great to help with his cutting skills too, although we nearly had a meltdown when he nearly cut the tail off the plane.
And, yes that is the Christmas tree in the background, I have bullied hubby into buying a decent sized tree now we have a proper house. When I was cleaning on Friday I was trying to figure out where to put it, anyway to cut a long morning short, I ended up moving all furniture around, cleaning far more than I intended to and putting the tree up Oops. The decorations are still in the back of the pantry though, that is a job on tomorrows to-do list.
Back to yesterday, we also made salt dough ornaments and we painted the base colour - lots of orange and aqua for some reason :o). We will decorate them today then we can send some of them off with the presents to people in lands far away.
Ebi-kun is also LOVING the new books, he read books 2, 3 and 4 yesterday and is reading 5 as I type, he sits there laughing to himself when he comes to the 'punchline' in the book, so cute!
