Giving ya all a fair warning.....

I've changed my deadline.... 

The last two years I have tried and tried and TRIED to have my Christmas done by Dec. 1!  BUT... to no avail... my family just DOES NOT CO-OPERATE!  SO... I'll show them! YES I WILL!  I'm changing my deadline and by-gully - I'm gonna make it happen!!! (and if for some reason, it doesn't happen ... say like HOSPITAL visits, surgeries, etc... well, then I'm just throwin in the rag!  That would be 3 strikes and I LOOSE!!!) .... But... I'm not going down without a fight that's for certain!!!! 

So.... My new deadline is OCT. 31, 2012!!!!  YEP! Halloween day!!!! Christmas WILL be done!  So that during November, I will concentrate on baking, candy making, decorating etc.... and then... THEN everything will be DONE by THANKSGIVING!  And I can sit back... and R-E-L-A-X!  (I'm so gonna do it!!!) 

If you are wondering what I mean by "CHRISTMAS WILL BE DONE"... that is.... ALL my gifts will be made and ready to wrap!  And... if they aren't made... then they just aren't going to go! In fact, I'm really striving to have all my WOOD projects done by August - that way I can do them outside, when it is warm and not freeze my tooshy off.... although... for thinking I froze it off this last month... no worries, it's still there... have no fear... and probably larger than before as well!  DANG!!!! 

I'm also starting with a whole new "Make Christmas Count" Countdown schedule.... and I'll try and be much better at sharing that with you each month.... well, better than the last two years anyway.... I always start out with great ideas great ambitions, (or maybe I'm the only one that thinks that ) and then my "ambition" gets tired of me and goes on vacation...... (and just another warning... if that happens this year... I'm going with it, so don't bother looking for me.... :) I hope it goes somewhere warm, sunny and beautiful! hmmmmm..... ) 

So.... if you want to jump on the band wagon SLEIGH for 2012.... GET READY!!!! It's gonna be a fun ride!!!!  And I can't wait! I better get my act in gear! 

Thanks to all of you for making 2011 super fun!!!!  I've learned so much from ALL of you!!!!  Even though I would log out feeling a bit "inadequate".... you all gave me some inspiration....

I can't wait to see what 2012 holds!  All you talented people.... I surely hope you don't mind a very talented COPY-CAT-ER!!!! I'm really good at that!  So, what cha waiting for!?!?!?!?!  
I'm ready - let's get a move on it!!!! 

(BOP on over the O'forcraftsakes and you can see what I froze my tooshy for!) 
Well... that is if you really care....
