This for me is a scary thought. For me it is not 55 shopping days, it is 55 creating days (since I make most of my gifts) and so this is some long hours that I need to put in to be ready for this holiday I love so much. So I made this sign to remind myself, no more projects for myself for awhile..CONCENTRATE ON GIFTS! Not to mention all the hours I need to set aside for decorating. The good thing is I love the Christmas so it will all be a labor of love.
