It really isn't that popular in the netherlands, and the few things i found in the EU were overpriced or out of stock. I already checked around for things. I like etsy, i've been with them for quite a bit.

ill eventually find something, ill keep my eyes open.

So long as you label them it will be a surprise for you too as you'll probably have forgotten by then what you bought lol

I'm going shopping tomorrow and will hopefully finish everybody then. Then it'll just be writing cards, wrapping it all and posting what needs to be posted, and giving out what I can.

With everything going on and filling up my days and agenda, and then when I have time, my body can't deal with crap or i get headaches .. I haven't bought or thought about christmas at all - still .. sigh. Maybe i will just take $500 out of savings and go to amazon and empty my xmas wishlist

Going to the post office today to get the ones going to America posted. They're wrapped and ready to go!

I've made the first of my Christmas lego sets, I'll do one a week.

Still need to write out a few cards, and find any addresses I need for the ones that are posted

All presents wrapped, most of the cards are written, two lego sets made, most of the decorations are up, but still a few to go once Assisi gets used to the Santa that I put up today.
