I'm busy making holiday cards and finishing up some gifts I'm making. I'm getting real close to that point where I just want this season to be over with so I can start my New Year nesting. Every year I tell myself that next year I'm going to start earlier so I don't get to this overwhelmed point. But I never do it. I just can't get in the mood to do Winter Holiday crafts and presents until about the week before Thanksgiving. Then I make a huge list of a million and one things that I want to do. As the weeks peel away, I start paring down that list. Then of course the Universe has to throw in a couple of unexpected surprises that mess up my already too tight schedule. This year the heater broke. Yesterday morning I woke up to a very cold house. It's fixed now, but that did take up extra time. So, I've shortened my list a little more.
I do enjoy all the creating and decorating and baking. That's why I make my to-do list so long. There are just so many fun things to do! And it is fun to paint big red poinsettias and little brown deer. I'm really happy with the way they're turning out. I think I'll go see if the paint is dry now, so I can do the next step.
Have a great weekend! I hope you are getting through your to-do lists with little to no stress:) See you next week!
