Then, the kicker !
My sister send me these, telling me she is trying my photoshoot technique outside in the snow :
Now keep in mind, it is December 2nd and I am still thinking about how I wish I could go out and take a dip in the pool in between making stuff for the Etsy shop. (Pool has been taken down since Sept.1). I have bought exactly two gifts so far - one on line and one because I had a coupon to use at the craft store.
I haven't made myself a beautiful advent calendar like I have been wanting to do.
I haven't finished the ornaments I wanted to add to the Etsy shop a week ago.
I haven't brought Christmas decorations up from the basement.
I haven't made Christmas cards.
I haven't even thought about baking.
Not to mention, Tim Holtz is doing his "12 Tags of Christmas" this week with fantastic giveaways everyday and I will miss it all if I go away to to my sister's house two hours north of Montreal where Dial-Up Internet is still the Vogue !
Does all of this stop me from dropping everything and packing my bags up to hit the road to see that Sweet Baby Girl ????
Life is too short and that Baby is growing too fast ! Got to go where my heart takes me.
The real meaning of Christmas for me is sharing love with your family and friends. I figure by heading up there today and sharing the love with that kid (not to mention her mom, her brother, her dad and all the other great people I will see while I am there !), I am actually putting myself out in front in the Christmas race...
Oh, you mean, it is NOT a race ??? My bad !;-)
Talk to you Sunday when I get back from getting the best gifts of the season !
