Just over 7 weeks to Christmas - doesn't time just fly? I hope that you've already started thinking about the Christmas season and that it is making you smile and not causing feelings of panic or stress! No matter what you have or haven't done - jump in and get started or keep going...progress today is such a great thing! For someone who is totally a procrastinator at heart, I have been thrilled with the feeling of accomplishment that working on Christmas already has given me - this will definitely have to become a yearly tradition! :)

Christmas Accomplishments

  • gift list made - several gifts purchased
  • holiday budget tweaked
  • purchased replacement Christmas tree lights (that we unfortunately did need) LOL
  • purchased gift cards & World Vision gifts on Christmas list
  • moved Trigger downstairs
  • work on Christmas card list - finally (though it will probably still have some tweaks!)
  • tree up - burnt out lights replaced
  • gather Christmas craft supplies - partial
  • transfer Christmas Club $$ into Savings Account so that it doesn't get mixed into regular spending
  • get recipe for Fruit Cake cookies from MaMa
  • check wrapping supplies

Christmas Goals 10/27-11/2

  • gather Christmas craft supplies - still need to hit a few more places
  • design Christmas tee for W & A (think I've figured his out, hers...not so much)
  • pick up additional wrapping supplies (tissue paper, ribbon)
  • keep an eye on Craig's List for one possible present
  • get started on Christmas dish towels

Thinking Forward

  • Christmas card pic
  • Christmas stamps
  • think through decorations
  • think through Christmas "schedule"

So what do you say - are you ready to get started this week? or have you already? Let me know - I'd love to hear how your Christmas plan is coming! I've also got several more Christmas posts planned for today, including a link to a post where you can win your own Christmas card design, so check it out!
