    Mary, I think that I need to get back on track too. Looking at the spruce up sheets may be the motivation that I need.

    I would like to re-start my Christmas gift crafting mojo! Have hit a lull myself! I'm also going to try and make a concerted effort to pick up at least one thing from Meijer each week while there for groceries that is for Christmas - stocking stuffer, something for a gift basket, whatever. Little by little it all comes together!

    I wish we had a Hobby Lobby closer but the closest one is about 30 to 40 minutes away depending on traffic.

    Ours is quite close here in VA but when we move to WA, it will be about 30 to 40 minutes for me too.

    AJ, I always try and use the weekly grocery shop to pick up a few things towards Christmas, whether it be some food for the freezer or a stocking filler or two. As you said, little by little it all helps.

    I'm starting to get the Christmas bug again - I do not know why exactly - but once it gets HOT again - I just instinctively want to play Christmas music, look at my Christmas books and craft, craft, craft on gifts! :)

    I started on a Holiday Spruce up list for the outside of the house. Using Christmas as my motivator is making a difference on my attitude with the mundane things. I noticed that our garage doors and the area around it needed a bit of a soap and water. Just envisioning the Christmas wreaths flanking the cleaned up garage doors made me smile. :D

    I want to take our front door off the hinges so I can repaint it and the door frame before we decorate for fall/halloween. I never really paid attention to the garage door but now I think I will ... Thanks for suggestion

    Holiday_Mom, I also need to do this. I will be hanging a garland off my garage door this year and it will look lovely with a nice clean door behind it. I will add it to the spruce up list.

    Hi everyone;
    Christmas has been the last thing on my mind as I have been working well over 40 hours a week for the past 3 months. Grateful for the opportunity but it leaves no time for anything else at the moment. I finally had a day off yesterday and was totally overjoyed when I walked into Hobby Lobby and saw the Christmas decorations going up and the smell of fall flanking the first 4 aisles. That truly made me happy from the inside out. Of course my first thought was this forum and how I couldn't wait to share my excitement with people who love to celebrate the holidays as much as I do. Then it was like an avalanche of lists flowing through my head to prepare. LOL It was all the motivation I needed. Now I'm trying to figure out how to arrange work around Christmas because after all, priorities are important. LOL

    I do hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.
