Yesterday’s project was to read Chapter 3 of Celebrating & Savoring a Simple Christmas (Did you sign up for your free copy yet? If not, click here and fill out the form to be emailed a copy.) and to figure out when you’re buying/making your Christmas gifts — if you haven’t done so already.
I’m a little late in getting this post up because we had two Christmas parties yesterday afternoon/evening and didn’t get home until late last night. One of them was a Gingerbread House-Making Contest Party, which was so much fun — even if our team’s attempt making a Monticello Gingerbread House didn’t quite pan out as we’d anticipated. 🙂
I sat down and put dates on my calendar for what I was going to buy and make when and it feels so good to have that all planned out! Once I got those details out of my head, I realized that things are in pretty good shape for our Christmas gifts. And that was a great feeling!
Did you figure out when you’re going to buy/make all your Christmas gifts? I’d love to hear what you’re doing — especially if it’s something creative or a little outside the norm. And if you’re blogging about this challenge, I’d love it if you left a link to your blog post, too. Let’s encourage each other to simplify and savor this season more!
