Oh heck yeah!
Planning for this year started pretty much the day after Christmas. I started jotting down ideas and then got that crazy hair to dive into my bag of leftover yarn and powered out two gifts for my darling girls. That just got me fueled up and excited.
A couple weeks ago I found a clearance sale on gift wrap and was able to restock with four rolls of paper for $2.48! That made my day. It's the little things. J
I am planning yet another handmade Christmas and I have more ideas of things to make than I have people to give them too, I'm afraid. I guess that just means I need more friends.
My girls have already given me their input on things they want to do, eat, bake as well as gifts they want to make. They've also suggested a few things they might like to receive.
As far at the budget goes, this last one was a tight one at a mere $100. Nonetheless I was able to pull it off and no one was disappointed with gifts or the things we did to celebrate the holidays. This year, however, I plan to double it and do a little more for my girls as well as replace our defunct lights that had to be tossed out and buy a new wreath. At $200 I should be able to do quite a bit.
So yes, I'm a little bit excited about preparing for Christmas once again. I have way too much in the process but isn't that what it's all about?
