Last Chance for Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve!  Are you ready?  Surprisingly, I made enough space over the last week or so that I actually AM ready.  Presents bought and wrapped.   Halls (and everything else) decked.  Portions of Christmas Eve dinner ready – the rest will be soon.

It’s not perfect up in here.  I swear.  I didn’t do Christmas cards or Christmas card photos – first time since I’ve had children.  Yes, I’ve had a little guilt over that – my kids were shocked and disappointed that I didn’t do them.  I’ve done some really awesome Christmas cards – I used to even do handmade ones.  Not this year.  I did get my picture made with Santa, though!

Tonight I’m hosting a Christmas Eve dinner for fifteen people (thankfully, I’m not doing all the cooking!).  As I am writing this morning, there is actually a very light SNOW falling outside my window. Pretty amazing after a weekend of temperatures up to 74, but that’s a Tennessee winter for you!

Before I go, here comes the Shameless Plug Alert:  If you have a special someone who you haven’t found the perfect gift for, my video classes (paint color and furniture arrangement) are available for easy gifting:

You’ll be able to print out a pretty gift card with an access code for that special someone (or maybe even yourself!) to the video decorating class of your choice.  It’s quick and easy, and you won’t even have to make a last minute run to the stores today!  Now back to what’s important:  my wish for you is that you spend your Christmas with people who love you.  I appreciate all of you who show up to share a little bit of my life, even when it’s via this blog.

Kristie, I found your blog earlier this year, and I just want to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoy reading it and how much I have learned. I did ask for your online workshop for Christmas – I’ll let you know if my family comes through! 🙂 Have a blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy new year!

P.S. No cards, photo, or Christmas letter from me either – this is the third year in a row that I just haven’t been able to fit that in. And I STILL feel guilty!

I remember the first year I “failed” to send out our annual Christmas letter with photos. Thought the world would end. It didn’t. I finally gave up on those letters and moved on to photo cards. I have occasionally missed a year here and there and this is one of those years. I have decided to send out a New Year/new address card in January. Less guilt that way. But I have learned that Christmas still comes and blessings still abound. Wishing you and yours all the JOYS of the season!

Kristie, None of us can do it all. I say embrace that this year you chose to give up the cards and pictures and focus instead on all (and I mean all, you are one busy and amazing woman!) you got done at home and with your business this year. I have so enjoyed getting to know you and really appreciate all of your help with my house. Wishing you and your family a Christmas filled with peace, love, and joy. Francie
