Today is my day to catch up on my half-finished holiday activities, which includes a half-decorated Christmas tree, the other half of my Christmas cards assembled and mailed, the rest of my holiday house decorations pulled out and set up, and the rest of the Christmas presents wrapped and ready to give. Somehow I only managed to get half of all the above accomplished at this point, and now I feel the stress of it weighing me down. I mean – it’s just sad to look at a half-decorated Christmas tree! But, school is over until the new year and I have zero appointments today, so it’s just me, the animals, and Christmas today. Just call me Mrs. Clause.
If you are also feeling the holiday pinch to get everything done, then grab a few minutes for some quick and creative ideas from my fellow craft bloggers.
