A good ol' Christmas Mixtape

16 December, 2011


I'm finished with exams and back in my home town, in my Mama's house. It smells juniper berry, ginger bread and other delicious baked goods. S is coming home for the holidays soon, and one of my closest friends from college is coming to town tomorrow for a visit. There is so much to look forward to! (I made a little Christmas mix tape here that I've been listening to while preparing for the holidays.)

What have you been up to this week? How are you preparing for the holidays? Any crafting going on?

  1. I love these pictures! Sadly, I haven't really been doing anything Christmas-y... I really should start today! We're going home on Tuesday and that's when the race to Christmas will really kick off.

  2. I just finished with finals this week myself, so I haven't done any Christmas shopping or baking, but I'm definitely getting on that this weekend!

    I hope you enjoy your Christmas at home with your family. :)

  4. well.. i thought the best way to start preparing for Christmas was to finally sit down and write a post after more than two weeks of not touching the computer. i guess i've been experiencing some kind of blogger's block :)

    anyway.. i'm not very crafty, you know. i wish i was, though.. it must be so relaxing.. not to mention rewarding to do something yourself.

    it must be (so)... liberating

  6. Nydelige pakkelapper!
    Alle gaver er i boks, siden jeg skal jobb fram til 22 desember.
    Litt pynt i huset og de obligatoriske sviblene i Norgesglass!

  10. Randomly, I love vintage Christmas Carols. Like, from the 40s and 50s. I have no idea why. But once they're on - I'm happy. Even if I've gotten NO sleep. LIKE TODAY!
