79 Days to Christmas and...
this is what I have done so far! I've created a Christmas journal to keep track of ideas and lots of list. I've started my list of giftees and gifts I'm considering for each person. I started updated my address book for Christmas cards. I've even started my Christmas shopping! In years past I would hide the gifts all over the house and then forget where that "perfect" hiding place was! So, this year I have designated a large rubbermade container for Christmas gifts, now they are all in one place! Lastly, I bought Jilian's Christmas dress which will serve as the inspiration for Grace's Christmas dress. Traditionally I make the girls' Christmas dresses but this year I saw one I loved for Jilian and figured, "hey give yourself a break and only make one this year!" Already I feel less stressed for the holidays!
