…for Christmas that is.  We fall into this start-too-late habit every single year.  The past two years I was saved a bit by circumstances beyond my control (reduced work hours in 09 and the epic snowstorm of 08 which left us home for days)…

This year we aim to be more prepared.  Supplies are purchased/we already had them…. some rough lists have been made…now we must just work work work to the Christmas music. 

Now – I know what you are thinking here….  show us your craft!

The thing is… I am pretty sure most of our friends and family read this blog.  {well maybe not my dad, unless it is about home improvement projects… but frankly, I would never give him a wreath or a set of napkins etc etc etc.   Although I might this year if he continues to not give me a proper list with more than one lame item on it. }   Ah I digress.

Handmade Christmas idea roundup from some bloggers that I follow via my google reader:

After the holidays – let us know what YOU made this year, and we will do the same!

{really I am just beyond excited because B told me we could watch Eloise at Christmastime tonight.   I am bouncing up and down with excitement.}

    Dad would like a wreath, a set of napkins and gloves with no finger covers. Hee, hee!
