what no country living?

I cannot be alone in this plea for the Country Living Christmas issue, I'm going nuts here!!
I shall have to make do with 2006 and 2007 issues for now.

Last years had a great way of recycling Christmas cards, so if you missed it or recycled your magazine (surely not the latter!!) here is the article.

I made 3 last year and saved all the Christmas cards to make more this year.
Is it too early to get the Christmas box out of the loft?
I'm also itching to put up some fairy lights in the kitchen, so that's a good excuse!

I'm off to the shop again with my binoculars to see if I cant spy the lesser spotted country living Christmas edition!!

But I didn't have last years and those baubles look great, I'll try and make some just got to find some cards.
Get those lights up.

My bag of last year's Christmas cards is in a cupboard in my workroom, crying out to have something done with them. Thanks for this little prompt. I'm going to find a jar and a ruler.
*smug grin on face*
Know what you mean - Country Living and Good Housekeeping are Christmas. I have GH but where oh where is CL???
