click hereI’m pretty sure this is how it always begins. The day after Halloween, my mind starts rambling in a different direction, with the realization that, for the most part, the holidays are upon us.
Maybe it’s my excuse for crafting and baking. Maybe it’s the Christmas decorations in all the stores. Or maybe it’s the calendar in my mind that say: 24 days until Thanksgiving, which means 25 days until the season’s first batch of Nuts and Bolts. That’s barely more than three weeks away! Then a mere four more weeks and it’s Christmas!
I swear, time never went by this fast when I was little. (Insert slight panic here.) Which is one of the reasons for this post. There’s no reason we can’t plan things out and avoid last-minute chaos. No reason we shouldn’t be able to really enjoy the holidays.
As I’m sure you remember, last year we brought you Craftdown to Christmas, and I’m thinking it’s not too soon to reprise those posts with some new and super-cool crafts, gifts, decorations and the like.
Yes, yes, I know. We have to get through Thanksgiving, too. So expect a few ideas to make Turkey Day a great one as well.
At this point, I humbly ask for your feedback. If you’ve got a great craft, appetizer, decoration or gift idea, let us know and we’ll feature you here on Coffee Break. But why stop there? We’d love to know about your favorite holiday traditions – your tricks for keeping the holidays stress-free! Bring it on!
No better time to start than the present! The most wonderful time of the year will be here before we know it!
