Perfecting The Art Of Procrastination

I really should have been done with my Christmas cards by now, but I've been procrastinating......and procrastinating......and procrastinating.....

In fact, I've taken procrastination to a whole new are all the cards just waiting for the last bit of work to be done....

And here's the "Naughty or Nice" list that we recently updated.....

And yet, I keep finding reasons to NOT sit down and work on them.

So.....they may be late, OR you may have been naughty, but either way you won't know until right before Christmas


  1. WOW! You have a really long list!

  2. Now THIS is a memory!!!! I remember you and my mom working on projects for the Christmas Bazaar and getting your Christmas cards which were always the COOLEST :) So glad my mom told me about your blog! :) So fun! Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Ashley! That's so cool that you remember us working on stuff together....way back in the day!
