12 Months of ......

....of?  I thought of calling it "12 Months of Christmas", but that's not really what it is.  Let me 'splain it to you, Lucy.

I procrastinate.  I have good intentions, but we all know where that road leads.  Time gets away from me and the next thing I know, someone's birthday is tomorrow (or worse, TODAY!) and I haven't done a thing.  I can't tell you how many times we've stopped on the way to a birthday party to buy a gift--and wrapping paper, tape, and maybe even scissors.  Then had to wrap the gift on the hood of the car in the parking lot!  I was soooo happy when gift bags became popular.

And holiday decorating?  Christmas is about all I do.  And not much then.  I have been known to take it down Christmas Day!

Then along comes blogging and all you wonderful ladies.  While I'm packing up boxes of decorations and taking down the tree, you're already planning for next year.  And the things you come up with astound me.  Leave me in shame.  Please sit down for this next confession.  I only have *gasp* one Christmas tree.  I know!!   Some of you have trees in every room.  And decorations abound everywhere--inside and out.  Plus you have little homemade gifts for neighbors and friends.  Wow. 

This year I have set a goal to work on gifts and/or decorations every month---at least one thing a month.  But it may be things I give as birthday or thinking of you stuff during the year.  That's why I can't call it 12 Months of Christmas.  I think I may put a list on the sidebar, then I can be accountable.  And I'll link back to where I got the idea from--because we know I ain't coming up with this all on my own.

So, if you have any good, easy--stress the easy part--ideas for gifts, let me know.  And join me if you like.  When next December 1st rolls around, we'll be ready!

I think this is a wonderful idea! I like to decorate, but what happens at Christmas (and really all year) on blogland is amazing!

That's a BIG goal so you're wise to begin early. Certainly there are LOTS of ideas to be found in Blogland...Myself - I tend to give lots of Gift Cards, so that is required is that I save my money, not ideas. LOL

Way to be motivated! I too am a procrastinator and usually stop at the store on the way to the party. :)

I've actually done this for years and its still hard to organize it all. When I have a chance I will e-mail you some ideas! Proud of you!

What a great idea!!
I always wanted to be that organized. Sadly, it's probably not in my cards... but I will TOTALLY love watching you do it!
