Jessica Sprague is offering a free class to get the Holidays going.
There's still time to sign up. I think today is the last day though, so hurry and get over there.
Go on. I'll wait......
Signed up and ready?!?!!??? Good.
This year I hope to not get caught up in "the girls have got to have this" frenzy, like I do most other years. I really want to reign it in and be more practical about the gifts they get from us. I want them to grasp the concept that Christmas is more a Spirit than a gift receiving fiasco. I want them to appreciate what they have and be grateful that other people think enough to get them ANYTHING at all. My girls are not bad girls. Just over indulged. I would love to turn this into the Homemade gift year. But that isn't practical now is it?
So, I will try to ease up on the shopping and get more into the "doing".
You know, making cookies, hot chocolate, stringing popcorn for the tree, maybe make bird feeders for the yard (pinecones, peanut butter and bird seed).
I would like to take more meaningful photos too. I want to capture the feel of the season.
If you have ideas, let me know. If you have examples, leave me a link.
