Christmas is 4 Months Away!

Christmas is four months away!  For me, this is crunch time.  It is time to make travel plans, menus, gift lists, ornaments made, new decor planned and the house cleaned.  I will be deep cleaning every weekend from now on, and that will be quite the task since I have college classes one Saturday each month.  I will have to be organized and follow my plan!

For the past several years I have not purchased anything new for decor, choosing to use what I had and to mix it up so that it looked new and fresh.  I don't see that changing much, but I did purchase a fresh wreath for one of my doors.  Last year we bought a 12 foot tree for the living room and this year I don't have a dining room to decorate.  I will be rethinking how to use the lovely things I have for the dining room throughout the house!



Looking forward to hearing plans from the rest of you!

  1. No dining room?

    This is crunch time for me, too, but I feel like I've got a great start. I am theoretically done with stocking stuffers, but of course I know I'll buy more. I'll save the jerky/sunflower seeds/ candy til much closer to Christmas, and I always find little things that simply MUST be bought at the last minute. I do have plenty of fun and clever things, so I feel like I am done.

    Cleaning...sigh. My intentions are always to follow the plan, but I seldom do. At least this year I have a medical excuse.

    I need to finish my ornie swap ornaments, get started on my cards, and pray that the Good Lord will give me a great gift idea for my Mother-in-Love.

    Happy Rudolph Day!

  2. I too am trying to clean out and make room for all the new goodies that santa will bring. I am also starting to find new recipes I want to add to my chocolates I give away!

  3. How exciting to hear that we are 4 months away from my favourite day of the year! I can't wait to see all of your decorations over the next few months.

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.
