Milk, cookies and a brand new bike!

I know it's only October, but thoughts of Christmas are starting to enter my head...which is probably a good thing, since I always seem to be running around like a mad woman, come December :)

One of the recent Label Crew projects was a Christmas themed mug rug, which is perfect for putting out Santa's treats on Christmas Eve.
Mind you, by the time he gets to our house, Santa is usually ready for a beer and some rum balls :)
I used fabrics from Sweetwaters' Countdown to Christmas range for this little project, and am now all inspired to cut into it a bit more!

Some of you may remember from last year that our family collects a "mode of transport" Santa each Christmas...we have Santa in a plane, in a hot air balloon, on a reindeer etc etc...and I was starting to worry that we may have exhausted Santa's transport possibilities :) Imagine our delight when we came across this in the Myer Christmas Shop...
...and before the beginning of December! Very happy with that...one less thing off my last-minute Christmas-frenzied shopping list, and the kids think he is adorable. I almost can't wait to start decorating for Christmas again...hee hee, I did say almost :)

Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? Or are you still in denial that it's less than eleven weeks away? LOL

Have a great day

Cute Santa indeed. We have a Christmas barn near here with loads of trees and decorations, open half the year. Each time I visit I want it to be time to decorate.

The mug rug looks great :)
