It's Offically Christmas. . .

at my house that is!
Tonight I started on some of my homemade Christmas gifts (and even bought one of my purchased gifts)! I love to make homemade gifts, but the secret to making them is to get a good head start! No one has time at Christmas to be making gifts. I started to take some photos of my creations tonight to share with all of you, but then I realized some of you may actually be receiving some of these, and I didn't want to ruin the surprise!

I really wanted to let you know that I started my gifts and encourage you all to try to make some of your gifts this year. They really make the reciever feel special and you have such a sense of pride and accomplishment when you give them! When my daughters were young I didn't give them money to buy gifts. I required them to make their gifts for their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. They really had fun doing it and they loved giving their gifts! I am so glad I did that. They learned alot and had fun along the way!

Some of you may think I am nuts for starteing so soon but did you realize that Christmas is only
4 Months OR
243 Days OR
5834 Hours OR
350015 Minutes OR
21000950 Seconds AWAY!!!!!!!!
Here is a fun link to a countdown calendar for you to keep track of when the BIG DAY is
Here Comes Santa!
