Christmas Calender

So is it really that bad to be looking at Christmas stuff already??  I've actually got my list of gifts all figured out for everyone in my family!  Now I just have to get shopping!  My goal this year is to have all my shopping done by the end of October, as to fully enjoy the holidays without stress!  Every year I'm overwhelmed with one thing and one thing only, getting gifts for everyone.  I've vowed ever year to get my shopping done early, but thanks to money, it never seems to happen.  The worst part is I find it hard to focus on the true meaning of  Christmas!  I've tried every season to get in the right mind set, but it never happens, this year will be different!  I hope........

When I came across this Christmas calendar I knew I had to have one!  Oh I wish I could sew!  I'm lousy with a sewing machine, and the one I have is an old hand me down.  The last time I got it out, I could not for the life of me figure out how to thread it!  I'd done it before, but this time, it was hopeless.  However Ashlee Woolf has amazing sewing skills and was kind enough to showcase her beautiful Christmas calender and I want one!  I'm thinking I might actually try it as a magnet board instead.  I'll let you know how mine turns out (whenever I get around to it).
