Don't Hate Me Because I'm Organized




I'm not bragging, but I only have a handful gifts left to buy for Christmas. Okay maybe I am bragging. But you'll forgive me, right? Neither of my girls has asked for a single thing for Christmas. They are pretty easy to please. Emma said she just wants to be surprised and that she would love to get some crafts. These 2 items are at the top of my shopping list. Do you have any other gift suggestions for a little creative soul?

You can find these here and here.

  1. I also have all but a very few gifts left to buy. I've stopped telling people that info, because they tend to give me dirty looks! :)

  3. That is exciting! I love everything that is related to christmas! I've already put up my mini x-mas trees around the house to get a head start on decorating. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who is already getting ready for the holidays =D

  5. I have not started, but I only have a few gifts. I'm buying little things on Etsy. These ideas are so cute! I found your blog via Her Southern Charm!

  7. I really love your blog! I went way back to a Jan post & you mentioned you were considering starting a fashion blog.....that would be awesome because I seriously need help. I do so much home stuff that I have no clue how to dress my cute-like ya' know? And to think I used to work at Nordstrom!! How soon (well 20 years later) we forget!! yikes I hate even having to say such things like 20 years ago....:{

    I'm thinking of a blog (for you to start of course ;-) ) for stay at home mom types on not nordstrom budgets but maybe Target budgets...and how a 40 yr old something can still dress cute....

    please....pretty please.....

  9. That cupcake is adorable! I kinda do hate you for being so organized. I'm not planning on buying many gifts at all this year, I'm making them, which is rather laughable at this point, considering I've not started any of them. I'd better go and get busy!

  10. I have Ruby done - does that count for anything?

    ps - So excited! Blah blah blah...I've said it a million times, but it's worth repeating.

  11. Wow, you're good! I've never been an early shopper because I either can't remember where I hid the gift (other than the top of the closet!!!) OR I can't resist giving them out when I purchase them!

    I have a friend who does it all in Jan and Feb because of the sales. How awesome is that? She saves SO much money!

  15. Just the thought of Christmas makes me brake out into hives... but there is hope in knowing that other people actually do do it. and that one day, maybe I can do... or maybe one day I will reconcile myself to my procrastinating nature... but I really really really don't want to be stressed every holiday season... anyways, thanks for the heads up!
