I know, it sounds wrong, right? I mean it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But, since Thanksgiving is not a UK holiday, Christmas preparations has started here.
Today I went to a Christmas food tasting event at a local farm shop, La Hogue. They were giving visitors samples of their free range turkey, chicken, ham, geese, etc. There was a little craft market too which was really fun to go through. After a bit of sampling, Emma and I decided on getting a golden turkey for Thanksgiving and unsmoked ham for Christmas. The turkey was sooooooooooo good and the ham succulent! Can’t wait to cook with them!!
Besides the food tasting we had a night of fireworks and bonfires. It was Guy Fawkes day yesterday here in the UK. Our village had a huge fireworks display and our neighbour invited us to a bonfire party after. Hubby made a super mean BBQ pork ribs. They were divine! Seriously!! And everybody loved them! We will definitely have to do a BBQ next summer so that our friends can get a taste of the awesomeness, HA!
Then my project… it’s a gift card wallet inspired by a folding card sketch by Waltzingmouse. I know it looks like a card but it isn’t. With a Scor-Pal I scored this 4.5×9 piece of paper at the 3″ and 6″ mark and then fold. The reason I used this method to create my wallet was so not to make the tag and ribbon visible from behind. Let me show you what I mean:
See? Clean on the back!
I need to make a few of these because I have a couple gift card gifties. I know it seems so not thoughtful to give a gift card but ya know, while we all love gifts, sometimes it’s just nice to pick our own things and have the money (the gift card) to pay for them.
I hope you’ve had a great weekend too and until next time!
