Yes everyone, that title is a Christmas countdown! We here at Embellished Living are definitely in Christmas mode. We had Christmas items for sale at our craft show on Saturday and everyone seemed really excited about the upcoming holiday! We are rolling out our new Christmas items at Simply Southern Marketplace this week in time for the town square's open house Holiday Celebration and our Etsy customers have already begun their holiday shopping as well.
I say every year that I am going to start Christmas shopping in January. Strangely enough that never seems to actually happen. I have had a couple of years where I start in August. This, my friends, is not one of those years. My kids are 8 and 12 which makes the idea of Christmas shopping much less appealing, because they don't want all of the fun toys anymore :( I have no idea what I am going to get either one of them, let alone anyone else on my list. I have to say, when I see that we only have 56 days left till the big day, I have a bit of an anxiety attack. I think I am going to live in denial a little while longer and focus on helping other people cross names off their gift giving lists instead, that gives me less anxiety ;)
How about you... Have you started your shopping yet? I know one person at least that I would bet money is already done with her shopping. Are you someone that waits till the last minute or are you done months in advance? Are you like me and the whole thing gives you a bit of anxiety?
Happy 56 days till Christmas!
