It's coming...

Christmas is sneaking up on us. It is 2 MONTHS from tomorrow. You heard me...2 months. If you are in charge of shopping, cards, cookies and more you better start to get organized.

I know some people like to send out cards with pictures. Paper Cafe is a great site where you can get different and beautiful ones made. I really like them. Not sure what I'm going to do yet but these are a great option.

They also have many photo-less Christmas card options. I really enjoy simplicity in Christmas cards.

And if you are like us you may have a desire to throw lots of parties. Here are some great invitations.

If I was having a birthday party this year (I'm not...I had 2 last year) these would have to be the invites. It works for non-traditional holiday parties too. Love it.

Hope these give you some ideas to get started planning for my favorite holiday of the year.

Em, I love these cards. I especially like the one with two bulbs and I could the boys picture in each of these. I can not wait to meet Griffin. He looks absolutely adorable. Him and Caden would only be about 5 months apart too. Too bad we don't live closer. Love you! Enjoy the little guy.

Love, Heather

I am so glad to see Christmas on your site!! I love the traditions of getting ready for Christmas and this year I feel as if I am triple gear as I prepare spiritually, mentally and physically while expecting baby #2. I have been wanting to have a reusable Advent Calendar for our home for a couple years and thought I would check out Etsy (since I have now officially - meaning spent money - hooked on the site.) There are a couple of really cute ideas beyond the felt pouch. Check them out. Love the muffin tin idea as well as the drawstring bags.
