According to my date keeper (see the readiness thingy at the bottom of the site), it is less than 21 days until the Big Day. BUT, if you are of a different faith/belief, your holiday time may already be here. What did you do/make? What are you going to do? I would love to know!
I'm trying to finish up what I need to do. Like last year, most of the gifts are handmade. Some people may not appreciate it, but I am doing what I can afford. PLUS, it comes from me, not bought by me. I try to be creative and not super duper simple and uncaring. I don't take the "easy" way out. I put time and effort into each and every thing/item I make.
And if, by chance, you are receiving a gift from me... if you don't like it or don't want it... PLEASE don't tell me. Just accept it. This is the one time in the year I don't want the truth. The truth IS NOT what I want to hear.
This season, no matter your faith or beliefs, is about giving. "... And I give to you a part of me, because you are my friend. It's a mirror of the heart of me. Look inside; see my soul; share my song and it will never end..." (one of my favorite songs from way back in the day - 6th grade glee club... don't judge me!) I can't find the song any where, so if you know it... help me out with the origin, PLEASE!
