Its 100 Days until Christmas, do you know where your list is?

Yep that’s right, only 100 days until Christmas! Can you believe it? I always thought that Christmas took forever to get here, as a kid. Now its like I blink and its here again. Dragging out that dang tree, putting up lights, wrapping presents and oh my the lists upon lists.

This year I’m wanting to implement a few new traditions for my family. I’ll be sharing those as we get a little closer to Christmas. If you have any traditions that are unique to your family, please let me know and I’d love to have you guest post.

I’m loving SpringPad for lists and things, and I’m sure you will too to clip things from the internet for Christmas presents and decorating ideas.

As for decorating, I want a new tree. Maybe more than one tree, because really I have room for them. I want this year to be a great holiday for everyone, and not to reflect back to past years that went to heck in a handbasket.

This year I think I’d like to have a vintage Tree
, a traditional Tree
with handmade ornaments, and maybe a Feather Tree
. I hope to make a lot of things this year for decorations like using this embroidery transfer on some cute towels, and just have fun with everything. I think that if the house is a joyful place, then it will raise my spirits.

One thing that’s for sure, is that I’m in the planning stages already. I’m writing my lists and checking it twice, gonna find out who’s naughty or nice!
