Yes, you read that correctly. This year I'm planning on doing "12 MONTHS of Christmas"! What does this mean? I am going to make *at least* one Christmas gift each month throughout the year. Yes I am crazy and have already come up with several of the gifts that I plan on making. And that is on top of all of the gifts/cards for birthdays, mother's day, father's day, baby showers, etc. I have not, however, actually started making anything just yet. Tonight I plan on making a list of what to make each month.
Two reasons. One - to not be so stressed out the week before Christmas trying to finish everything & Two - to hopefully have it feel more like Christmas all year long (the joy of doing things for others part of Christmas, not the so stressed I want to pull my hair out).
Hopefully this works as well in real life as I am hoping it will!
