TIME IS NOT ON MY SIDE

How is it that I can start making Halloween themed items for my shop in July and still not have candy in the house on October 31st? Or that I can make Thanksgiving items starting in August and 2 weeks before still not have my menu down? Before I know it Christmas will be here and I'll be shopping on the 24th. Again. Every year I say I'll start Christmas shopping early. I'll be done by September, for sure. You'll see. And then it's the week before and I'm freaking out. Well, not this time. I will be done by December 15th or there will be no gifts. Period. (yeah, right.)



My biggest problem is that I need to send gifts in the mail now that I live down here in the south. I know that, in myhead, but I never realize how little time I really have when I factor in transit time. My poor sister in law got her birthday gift about 2 weeks late because it got lost on my desk for a week. *sigh* I need help. I will mail my niece's birthday gift today. I will. You'll see.



It's been a while since I posted (surprise!) so here are some pictures of what's been going on:
