39 days till Christmas...here are my goals...

As I was blog-hopping this morning I landed on my new blog friend, Sharyn's blog and found another online class to take. It's called Holidays in Hand, taught by Jessica Sprague.

The class starts today and our first assignment is to come up with a list of Christmas goals. That's easy, I have one: don't freak out!

Actually, my main goal this year is to really take it easy. I'm so over the hustle and bustle and running around -- this year will be different. This year I'm all about the joy and celebration of the holiday, rather than being caught up in the commercialism (really, I hit that point years ago). Gifts are going to be minimal, and handmade (well, for the most part...if I could make electronic gismos I'd be golden!).

And here's something handy to have, free planner printable from Organized Christmas. Check them out!

Good for you, Sweetie! The majority of my gifts will be handmade this year but I stress about whether or not they'll be "good" enough. Then I remember what you tell me over and over--"It doesn't have to be perfect!" So, my child, don't expect perfection--expect love!!! xo
