Happy Blogaversary to YOU!
I try to start in July for Christmas cards. Everyone starts talking about Christmas in July, so I TRY to start or at least think about my cards. Thanks for a chance.

I used to shop all year round for gifts, but when it came to crafts, I was always last minute. I would have something in mind by September but then something else caught my eye in late November so I would always be scrambling in December so this year I'm checking the SCS galleries for ideas so I can start early.

I find a little and often is the way to go. Perhaps start a Christmas card once and week and by the end of January you'll have four! Do that for the rest of the year and you'll have quite a collection :) Obviously if you do two Christmas cards a week you'll have double the amount come Christmas holiday season! etc.

Thanks for your generousity with your blog candy, I'll link you to mine.

Wow I just saw that you have 10 posts & I'm trying to play catch up today because we have been away for 2 days. You have been busy girl!

Happy Blogaversary Teri!!!

I always got ahead of the game by buying my gifts all year long whenever I saw something of interest for someone I give a gift to, this is how I always use to finish my shopping by Thanksgiving. Now I can't seem to get it together anymore.

I try to start making my crafts as soon after I get an idea as possible. Since I usually make something for several people I can make them assembly line fashion, which speeds things up.

Since I start signing up for some Christmas Card Challenges. I have about 15 cards so far. For shopping I try to buy stuff on sale and check who would need it or safe it for later and figure out who I should give it too. Thanks for another chance to win.

Congratulations on your Blogaversary Teri! I wish that "I" could give some advice on getting ahead for holiday cards. *lol* But, I do have to admit that participating in various blog challenges helps me to get ahead with my holiday card stash.
hugs

My advice would be to start early by organizing a "to do" list. I try to plan ahead and do a little each month. Doesn't always work out...but at least I make an effort! lol! laura j.

Happy blogaversary, Teri. Sorry, no advice for getting holiday preps under control. I've been trying (and failing) for way too many years. But I love the holidays and love all the things I do to decorate and celebrate. Is it too early to put up the tree? Judie
