Yeah. The 12 Days of Christmas giving begins today!
For those of you that are new to my blog since last December … please know that I LOVE Christmas. I celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ during this season. I strive to find a balance between celebrating this "true meaning" in our home and participating in so many of the secular traditions that I also find FUN and meaningful. I am very much a believer in Santa Claus and I relish the opportunity to create a magical and memorable December for my family. It is in this spirit of celebration and sharing that I bring you twelve days filled with gift giving ideas. I hope you will find use and inspiration in them. I do not gain anything from the recommendations I make and I cannot guarantee the availability or quality of the gifts I choose.
One last thing … the next twelve days are dedicated to women like me (who DO NOT get their cards done in July, who DO NOT shop 75% sales in January for the following year, who DO NOT have their shopping done on December 1st. I suppose I could have just let you assume those things. I greatly admire and aspire to be one of those women, but I AM NOT (yet).
OK. Today is all about digital FUN at the Discovery Store (for under $20) AND … THERE IS A REALLY GOOD ONE DAY SALE ON TODAY!!!!!

To see what I'm doing to track all my HOLIDAY lists!
I used this chipboard album and some new and old Basic Grey, plus other random papers to whip this up in one hour, before we left to Seattle on Thanksgiving. Trust me, if I can do it, so can you! And I'm so tickled with it — in my opinion, having a cute place to tuck and track everything is totally worth the effort.
OK. That's it for today.
Now, before you head off to work on your own lists, take a few minutes to watch this, and think about it. Cathy sent me this link to the Advent Conspiracy and said "you will like this." She was right.
