Christmas is When Again?


Aaaah, how was your weekend? We here all had a 3 day weekend, and I got so much done, I feel much better. I was really stressing out cuz I've got 4 birthdays before the month is up (big ones, too! Krista, Shawn, my sister & my mom. Phew!), Thanksgiving, half days at school coming up (conferences - I hate half days, but I think we already covered that), Christmas cards, these fancy schmancy tins, another gift for family that I'm making (you'll see it soon enough, relax!) and of course, Christmas itself. Wow, looking at all that, I guess I didn't really get that much done, after all. Ohhh, I feel my stress level rising! I'm doing 4 different designs for my Christmas cards (ambitious, I know, but I hate the repetition of 50 of the same card), and I did 2 sets. Well, I already had 1 done, so I've only got 1 set to go. And the tins aren't really that big of a deal. I've got 2 sizes going - the one above will have kisses in them, and the labels coordinate with the different cards that I've made. I've also got the hinged tins that Nichole did (Click me!), and those will have nuggets in them. Yeah, I haven't quite started on those yet, but they sure look like fun! I'll post more pics as I get them done. At least I have Krista's birthday presents ready. Almost. Kinda. She's really hard to shop for. But not as hard as her dad, whose birthday is the same day. And actually, that's the perfect gift. You know, the gift that keeps on giving. Shawn is notoriously hard to shop for. And every year people ask me what to get him. Hey, if I could think of something, don't you think I'd be buying it myself? I'm not just giving the good ideas away here. Really, what do you get the guy who has everything he wants, and if he doesn't have it, he's got to research it to death, so you can't just go buy it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. But really, what's better than getting a beautiful daughter for your birthday? I say nothing, so I guess I don't have to go shopping for him.
