Yesterday my son dug out the Christmas tree and ornaments for me....we were supposed to decorate the tree last night....by the time I got home from our building Christmas Social last night all I wanted to do was watch a bit of TV and go to bed....so that is what I did. Tonight I plan to get the tree decorated and maybe start getting my Christmas stuff up around the house. By the end of the weekend my house should look much more festive.
Sometime over the weekend I hope to do up a few cards.....only got 2 Christmas Cards made this year....which is two more than last year. I was hoping to make my own gift tags this year as well but think that will have to wait till next year too. I do have a plan for getting more Christmas cards made in 2011. Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop happens each month and I hope to make at least one Christmas card each month and participate in as many of the hops as I can. I also hope to make some gift tags throughout the year as well. I might have a chance of getting ahead of the Christmas rush next year. I do have a few Christmas Magnolia images colored up now to just make a card....so I figure if I start now I will be ready for the first hop in January. I really enjoy receiving handmade cards/gifts as I feel that so much more comes with the gift...that is why I want to make more Christmas cards to give as then I am not only giving a Christmas card but I am giving a little bit of me as well.
