A feat that surprised not only my recipients but myself as well. Not to mention that I didn't have any gifts stashed away somewhere to be found in February (yes, it happens more times than I care to mention.)
I've already planned to have my own personal "Rudolph Club" on the 25th of every month, where I do something Christmas related. This month I will be making 10 Christmas Cards and purchasing a gift card to either give as a gift, or use to shop with when it gets closer to Christmas.
I WILL STAY ORGANIZED THIS YEAR!
i love this! i think i'll try it.. i didn't get any christmas cards out this year... pushing myself to do christmas cards each month will be great!!
