Christmas Talk

So many blogs are talking Christmas! I am wanting to start on some decorations, but haven't decided exactly what I am going to make. I am off for the day to look at some craft supplies and get some ideas.

Have any of you started your Christmas shopping? I tend to do a little at a time throughout the year. We've already purchased a few items, but still have some to go.

I'm already listening to Christmas music, too. Honestly, I tend to do that most of the year, but lately it seems I've been listening more. If you like the Irish sound, I can recommend the Cherish* the *Ladies Christmas album~I've been enjoying it quite a lot this last week. It is called *On* Christmas *Night* and has a wonderful mix of songs.

Everyone have a great day and a fun weekend!



  1. I don't shop for gifts till Thanksgiving day or after, unless I run across a sale that is too good to pass up that is.

    I do at this time stock up on decor and craft you can tell by my post today!

    I'll look for that CD as I love the Irish sound and Christmas music is so soothing!

    Have a great day!

  2. Oh so glad that I'm not the only one that get's Christmas going a little early in my heart!!
    I haven't done any shopping yet, but started on a few homemade gifties. I love the Christmas music too...and I've started reading some of my favorite Christmas books! And come to think of it, I watched Holiday Inn last weekend! :)

  3. My shopping is all done, some are even wrapped. Already listening to Christmas music and started making some decorations. I just love christmas

  4. Yes, Yes, I am thinking of Christmas. I have bought some items. I will do most of my shopping the day after Thanksgiving.

    I just can't wait for the holidays.

    Take care,

  5. RM,
    Thanks for the recommendation on the Christmas music, I may look into that.
    So what crafts did you end up buying?
    No I haven't started shopping yet, but I will very soon, its gets here quick!

  6. I usually wait until the week of Christmas. I keep telling my self on more pay check. I hope to make some food gifts this year, I make a almond brittel that people look forward in receiving. Let us know what you find at the craft store.
    I keep saying I am going to shop all year but it just has never happend.

  7. I haven't even thought about shopping yet, with the house on the market and one offer pending, just not sure how much I will decorate this year? I usually go all out with 2 trees, but I love the season of giving! Can't wait to see what homemade goodies you come up with!

  8. I started working on some Christmas things the last week in September with such good intentions. I now realize the house project is taking up most of our time, but it will be worth it when finished.
    Thanks for the info on the CD--definitely something I would love!
    Blessings to you! Claudia O.

  9. Uh huh...I already have all my *Santa* shopping done. : ) I have a few things for Bill and Dan. my Mom and my nephew. We are giving the brother and sis in law's gift certificates for a B&B weekend and free babysitting! : )

    Warm Hugs,
