We listen to Christmas music, put in the Christmas movies and start crafting and making gifts.
I do it because I love it, and it makes me very, very happy. It is when I am motivated and full of ideas and have more energy then I do right now-11 days before Christmas!
I also start early so I can take the few weeks before the Holiday to enjoy company, parties and Falalala Lifetime.
There are still always things that I don't get to, like getting more creative with wrapping gifts.
I finally did it this year.
These gifts are for all the ladies in my life.
I took vintage sheet music that a friend gave to me, some bows and tags from the Library sale and trimmings from my sewing basket.
I am so glad I made time to do this.
I found this sweet artificial tree at our local recycling barn last June!
My husband rolled his eyes at me as I was shoving it in the car between the kids while sweating to death.
It was so worth it!
