December…it’s Ho Ho Ho time…

Happy December!

I always love the first part of December…getting ready for Christmas is always a fun time…

Here are a few Holiday tips to start now…Get those Holiday cards written and sent asap!

Plan your presents whether you are buying them or making them…set your plan for getting them ordered now.  Plan your attack for the gifts you are making, make a list and make sure it is manageable…be realistic…and then stick to it…Do not let anyone steer you off your course.   

Start decorating the house so you can enjoy it for a full month…there is nothing worse than putting out decor for week or two…it’s ok if you do not get it all done at once…I like to break it up into rooms and save the tree for last for the grand babies to help!  Slow down and enjoy the whole process….Also any decor you do not use…set aside and give it away or donate it asap!

I know we have lots of new people here so I have a fun pillow project for you that I offered a couple of years ago as a FREE pdf download.  This will help if you need a quick gift or need a little extra accent for the bed, a chair or couch! I will try to get another free one for those who already have this one…

  4. You have turned me into a pillow maker! I love making them and am making them as Christmas gifts for family and friends. I have saved and referred to your zipper tutorial MANY times! Zippers use to give me anxiety but not anymore. Thanks Lisa. I’ll have to check out this new book.
