24 More Days!!

I just realized that today is December 1st so that means Christmas is just around the corner!! Time has totally flown by and now I realize that shopping season is upon us!! Sadly I still have exams so the earliest date that I can really buy presents is the 17th!! Do you think I will have time??

I also make it a point to handmake as many of my cards as possible!! Here is an example of the card that I made for my boyfriend last year! This card holds special meaning to me because it features our toy horses and it has a really cute story behind it!
When my boyfriend was over one day he was looking at all my stuffed animals, he noticed the horse and he was like I have the exact same one!! Turns out that we had the exact same stuffed horse when we were litte!! How weird is that??!! He named his horse Pinky and I named mine Bluey!

Here they are!! He cut off the mane when he was little and he said that he loved it more so it's more used! Mine is the prettier looking one =)
