Here at my house, we are in the throes of Christmas preparations. Although it always seems to be a crazy time of year, we are trying our hardest to enjoy ourselves while we prepare. Sometimes wanting to celebrate Christmas in a more simple way makes for other stresses that end up making it feel NOT simple. Really, it's a trade off - one stressor we can't stand for another we are comfortable with. Doing this make the stress seem less like stress. Actually enjoyable. For instance, I really don't like to shop. But I do like to sew and shop at fabric and craft stores. So, this year, I am making gifts for the majority of the people on my list. Any shopping that I want to do is happening online for the most part. I don't mind that as much. And there are so many cool things to see on Etsy!!!
We've all been busy.
Hard at work.
And trying enjoying nearly every minute of it.
