i don't know about you
but i do not enjoy
stuff on the shelves beside
the fall stuff
i love fall
and don't wish it to leave sooner than it must
the thought of christmas shopping stresses me out
don't get me wrong,
i love to shop, love it
but really, we are on a tight budget right now
and don't want to spend money we don't have
sooooooo....i am announcing
a promise and a challenge!
i PROMISE to make it a homemade christmas
i CHALLENGE you to do the same
over the next few weeks,
i am going to post some really great ideas
and cool links
for making great gifts this christmas
yes, i get that i will have to buy the stuff
to make some of these things
but i know i will spend way less
and i can't wait to do it with the kids
we have the whole week of thanksgiving off
we will start then...
and really, here is the biggest question:
how much more stuff do we all need?
hubs and i have downsized our kids stash of toys
and really, what they have is still more than they play with
and as for us, well, we have enough, as do most people i know!
so, i am declaring an end to excessiveness!
who wants to join me in lovingly making this a homemade christmas?
