I'm behind!

The halls are not decked in our home. I usually have it all festive by now but this year we are empty nesters and with shift work, I have not had the energy to go down to the garage and bring up all of the Christmas storage bins. Shame on me! We do not even have a tree yet. As soon as we get it up this year it will be time to take it down.
I have been visiting your blogs though and they are all decked out with Christmas decor posts and leave me longing to share my own. I did manage to make a few Christmas banners for my shop.
I bought these cute snowmen for my kids. I buy them an ornament every year so when they have a tree of their own they will have all of their ornaments from childhood. It's also fun to reminisce over when they rec'd this one or that one and why that one was chosen, etc. Yes, I am a sentimental fool.

Well good news, as soon as I reopened my shop I received 3 custom orders for my journals. So that was nice. I will share pics of them later. I just finished writing out my Christmas cards and need to drop them off at the post office so at hopefully they will get there by Christmas. Ugh, I am so behind this year!I hope you all are way ahead of me.


  1. just relax and enjoy the season, that's what I'm doing. I have no expectations this year and it's the first time in I don't know how long I'm not stressed out and grumpy

  2. You don't have to be in any hurry. That's why it's called the holiday season...nothing has to be done in a specific day. Congratulations on your orders!

  3. Love the banners and well done on your orders Tammy!

    I've only just put my tree and decorations up this weekend, so you're not alone in that - I always put mine up quite late - I get fed up looking at it otherwise!

    Merry Christmas to you! x

  4. I don't know what it is about this year, but it seems like EVERYONE is behind! I managed to get some of my decorations up this year before getting sick and leaving them where they were and still are. I ALWAYS make Chritmas cookies the week before school lets out so I can send some to the teachers- I never even started them! It just seems so early this year, like it should still be October or something.....anyway, I just wanted you to know from one other person that you're not alone.
    Congrats on the journals- I can't wait to see the pics!

  5. Don't worry, just do what you can and it will be enough! Your banners are fun. Congrats on your journals!

  6. Hi Tammy,

    I'm right there with you...I've had the time but my husband has taken a job that is out of state and honestly I don't feel the urge to decorate...Maybe my small pink tree but that's it for this year.

    Your banners are great and congrats on getting those custom orders...that's always a good thing!

    Wishing you a magical and blessed Christmas!

    Merry Merry,
    Stephanie ♥
