Gorgeous Crafts #Handmade #Folksy

Got a numb brain today. No themes presented themselves so I just added what caught my eye. Not literally you understand, because that would be painful. All the crafts that I really liked the look of, mainly because they are a bit different.
I think I am starting to run out of steam, now that Christmas is so close.
I lost a crown... well not exactly lost... but it came out. not a good look at Christmas. A quick trip to the dentist soon sorted that yesterday and left me poorer. I am still itchy from my allergic reaction to antibiotics but at least I`m not swelling up so much. Things are improving. You see.... again.... not a good look when you want to be enjoying yourself. If you keep scratching people start thinking you have all manner of strange things, you get weird looks and they begin to edge away. If you try to explain they nod unconvincingly and move away faster.
It`s a bit like having a black eye. You get all these pitying looks and no one believes how you got it.
Many years ago after a trip to the dentist and an obviously badly sited injection, my eye became puffy. Well.... the looks I got when I went to work and nobody clearly believed my explanation. What they thought days later when no bruising appeared I don`t know, I gave up caring. After all I knew the truth and others could believe or not, their choice.
I was at work yesterday but left an hour early as it was the longest I had been on my feet in days, since the allergy started. Had my tooth fixed at lunchtime, but wasn`t allowed to eat so finished my lunchtime with a cuppa and some crochet.
Really need to get the rest of my gifts sorted out, who is having what, doing some wrapping and getting anything else I need. What can I say? I will try.... honest.... I will really try. No hard and fast promises though.
Okay I think I may have waffled enough for one day.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Busy, busy so much to do
busy, busy all day through.
Presents to wrap and no inclination
still much to do after deliberation.
Why can`t a fairy wave a magic wand,
of such a being I`d be very fond.
A flick and a wave all gifts sorted
shopping trip happily aborted.
Another wave, food is all done
and now I only have to have fun.
If only, if only that were the case
I wouldn`t have such a long face.
All the wrapping, more to buy
it`s enough to make me sigh.
Mince pies and sausage rolls to make
and a large gammon to bake.
Ooops, oh dear I forgot the bread,
for fairies there is much to be said.
So Christmas fairy wave that wand for me
because I am much in need you see!
