Every year I say to myself that I will not get in to the Christmas spirit until December 1, I always say ‘November is just too early’ to start celebrating – December 1st, December 1st, December 1st is when I will put up my decorations. However this year, something feels different, I couldn’t be more eager or excited to get in to the holiday spirit. Perhaps it’s something about living in New York at this time of year or the fact that in just a few short weeks I’ll be flying back to England to spend Christmas with my family after not seeing them for 10 whole months – but this year, the second week of November I was already standing in line at Michaels with overflowing piles of craft supplies in hand, ready to get my Christmas craft on.
If any of you are struggling on Christmas gifts ideas I’ll be posting a variety of gift guides over the next couples of weeks – starting with what to buy the hostess with the mostess! Be sure to keep an eye out.
