Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
Yes, I am getting ready slowly but surely. I'm working on pacing myself with my planning, preperation, shopping, wrapping etc. That way I always have something to look forward too and I don't have that 'done it all already' or 'nothing to do' feeling.
I usually start planning properly and making concrete notes, lists, plans etc around August time, but think about Christmas all year round.
I'll begin my Christmas shopping soon enough and get some packaging goods in as well. Wrapping paper, gift bows, tags, ribbon etc. I picked up some in the January sales, but it's always fun to see what is on offer.
I updated my Christmas organizer last Sunday.....I have already started posting the countdown at work.....and every day that I go into work, someone has erased it!!!! I have my Christmas playlists ready to go...and have been polking through my decorations. Most of my presents have been bought... But not wrapped yet.
I've already bought a few Christmas presents for the kids and some for teachers, dance instructors, etc... I've started looking for new recipes for cookies and appetizers for my cookie party. I've been listening to Christmas music so that really helps put me in the mood. I love getting ready for Christmas.
