    Yesterday, I bought my mother a cell phone for her Christmas presents. Thinking I might hide it in the HM socks I threatened to give her for Christmas.

    This week, I've cleaned the living room rugs, wrapped and delivered the Christmas gifts for charity, ordered gifts for all but one of the adults on my list, and purchased some gifts for my grand kids.
    I'm thinking about how to turn a pathetic fake pine wreath I found in my basement into a stunningly beautiful cheery one for my front door. But thinking is as far as I have gotten on that. Will use stuff I have on hand to decorate it, to be ultra frugal.

    for today I plan on getting the canning jars boxed up and put away, that will clear up some much needed space in the kitchen.

    So today i worked on the wreath for ds's school fundraiser and in doing so decluttered my christmas stash a bit (i challenged myself to use what i had cause goodness knows i wanted to run tk the craft store)

    Wrapped 2 gifts and did some more general sprucing.

    Last night we setup the Polar Express trains for our christmas countdown day 2.

    I got my Christmas shopping DONE except 1 thing for my dh.
    Now I just need to wrap the presents I did get (I really hate to wrap).

    My next biggest projects are straightening up my sewing room and the craft closet. Once I get those done, I will be very happy.

    Then after that, I need to keep tidying up everything on a daily basis to keep it nice and orderly.

    My Christmas prep for the past month has been to finish swaps I'm in on another site (my enthusiasm carried me away) and the FV ornament exchange. Both are nearly complete and I can then immerse myself in family Christmas goings on. So glad that I prep for Christmas year round!!

    Today is finishing the ornament exchange and moving the mailables to my car!!

    Finished shopping, even stocking stuffers.
    Filled the little HM bags with candy that I will give to coworkers. Just need to make tags.

    Baking supplies all bought, now I need to start baking.

    You are so on top of it all Dean - you just keep on going and things get done - seems like a miracle, but is really just plain old hard work!! Any pictures of your goodie bags to share?

    Here they are maui. Remember, they still need name tags. Each has Christmas candies in it.
