Yikes! I can't believe that Christmas is coming up so fast! It is so easy to lose track of it living down here. After all, nothing about the weather gives you any clue! And it's not like I haven't had other things on my mind lately!
We have always been the type of people (compulsive? prepared? Type A? just plain anal retentive about Christmas?) who plan for Christmas giving all year long. We are not usually caught up short weeks, or days, before Christmas gets here, wondering what on Earth are we going to get for Aunt Ruth or Cousin Mike. (I made those people up. I would never buy anything for them anyway!)
This year is just a tad bit different. We don't have tons of shopping to do, thankfully. But there are still a few odds and ends that we want to put under the tree for some select friends. I'm doing a fairly good job of not stressing about it.
And if you're still left wondering what more you may need to purchase, how about giving one of the great necklaces or bracelets that my good friend Kelly makes? I featured her work awhile back and it is some gorgeous stuff. She has now learned how to drill into sea glass and her collection of jewelry containing this unique piece of art is awesome. If nothing else, give her a click and go take a look. Oh heck, buy something too!
And just one more quick reminder. Since I am sure you do not want a bunch of kids in the freezing cold mountains of Mexico to look as deflated as this Snowman.
