Not only have I not started, but I do most of it on-line & do lots of gift cards (unless it's for the kids). I hate shopping these days. We usually do it the first week of December & then finish it up by the end of the 2nd week. I am not smart like those who start in the summer months. Maybe one day I'll be smarter & do that.

I have not started holiday shopping! I prob wont until november. I can't get myself to start shopping right now. I think it is just crazy that there is Christmas stuff up at the stores already. I went shopping for my moms birthday on a monday, september 29th and there were fall stuff up at the stores and then at friday when I went back to the same store (Kohls by the way) they had Christmas stuff up. I couldn't believe it...all at like 40-50% off to. I ALMOST I mean ALMOST started buying but told myself NO! its not even Thanksgiving yet!!

Nope I haven't started yet. We are trying to figure out if we can swing the money to go to MN over the break so I am kind-of waiting for that. If we do then Christmas will not be big here. I will get the kids something little and Kal and I haven't done Christmas for eachother in like 4 years. Both of our families live up there and they go all out for Christmas so I know that they will not be going without anything. So we should know in the next month if we will be able to make it if not I will start then.

Thank you ~* Helen *~ for the best all about me siggie! You are absolutely fabulous!

I start whenever someone mentions something they'd like to have anytime throughout the year but I won't finish until mid-December. LOL Whenever someone says "I wish I had ____" or "That is such a neat thing! I really like that!" If I know it's something they won't get for themselves, I will go back and get it and tuck it away. I also make a lot of gifts. I do stained glass work and am making the girls each a special glass piece. So, for the rest of the year, I will be staying up later and later to get these done. If I think of it, I'll post some pictures as I finish them up!
(the nice thing about doing it my way is that if I forget someone's b-day or something, I already have a present ready!)
