It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

It sure is...

For me this brings a certain amount of mixed emotions. Well I'm sure it does for everyone matter of fact.
My scenario is, the inevitable excitement of shopping... did I mention I love shopping! Then I also have the job of making sure people have things to shop for.

So on the work front it is crazy busy with a list bigger then I could possibly wish to achieve. But so long as I tick something off every so often and have that sense of achieving something, then it's O.K

A few ticks this week go to...

Firstly, getting some bunting done.
I was thinking for tree trimming but I like it so much that mine has become a permanent fixture above my desk. Mum the master of faster crochet than I, did all the lovely stars for me then I got to sit and join them all together ready for the shop.

Next I ticked off the task of having some new men's tees done...

'T-rex takes Melbourne' is the title of this fun shirt.

I did for a milli second contemplate just having the fabulous Melbourne city skyline as the feature print, but in true Finki form, I had to add a little quirkiness or it just wouldn't be me.
I decided my philosophy with men's tee's would be, 'Ask yourself Jay, would Sheldon wear it' For those not up with eccentric geeky dude Sheldon cooper of Big Bang Theory you may wander 'What the'.
Well what I mean is my style, I have come to realise is bright, bold, fun and sometimes a little retro. Similar to the stylings of our adorable geek Sheldon.
So as much as Melbournians, my home town, do love their black, I shall be trying my darndest to break that mould.

Moving on...
Ladies tee's is the the other thing I can tick off my list.

I did a run of 'Sweeping swallow' in four great summer colors.

So yay for ticking things off the list, makes me feel a little more prepared for the craziness that is Christmas.

Now time for some more shopping.
Oh....and it's not all Christmas shopping. I just find ALL stores focus on stocking there shops to the max with awesomeness right NOW. So it is the best time to shop, for upcoming birthdays e.t.c. Give it a month though and you'll be starting to see the shelves bare as they move off summer and X-mas and start getting ready for Easter!
Maybe not that dramatic, but you catch my drift.
