Cricut Man was out of town this weekend and in addition to working at commencement I spent a few hours getting my life a little more organized.
I curled up with a cup of coffee and my DayTimer one morrning and and started taking stock of all the ideas and project notes I've been accumulating. Found a resolution that I think I've made every year for the last 20 years to start Christmas projects in the summer. Even though last year I started in October (which was really good for me), it still didn't seem like enough time to get to all the things I wanted to get to.
So I'm backing it up and little and declaring a start date of JUNE 1st!!! Which after flipping through my DayTimer I'm realizing is right around the corner! I guess the lingering cold and late spring we've had has lulled me into thinking it's still April.
Here's where I'm going to start. . . .I have probably 12 old Folgers coffee cans in a shopping bag waiting to be turned into Christmas goodie containers. This is a prototype I made a few years ago and like so many of my other projects, got pushed to the side to make way for a more urgent project.
I bought enough paper and stickers at Memory Lane a few years ago to make 10-12 more. At the time I was going to use them to hold goodies for my team at the office. A lot has changed since then - specifically I'm working with a whole new team of people in a completely different office - so maybe they'll be the lucky recipients this year. That is if I can keep this resolution. 6 months and 1 week until Christmas. Ready, Set. . . .Go!
