I have to admit the holidays have me a bit nervous this year. I'm not in my typical holiday spirit but I am really trying. What has me nervous? Well money, the sheer number of gifts I need to make and my lack of creativity among other things. The world is a bit different this year (for everyone - another person I know lost their job yesterday) and I want to work past the challenges and get to the good stuff - the celebration, the joy, the sharing, the gratitude - but like I said, I am struggling. So, I am going to look at this similarly to how I approach other challenges in my life, I am going to come up with a plan.
I call it my Frugal Yet Fabulous Holidays plan. It ties together my need to watch my pennies and my desire to have a wonderful time preparing for and experiencing the holidays with my hope to be a better more consistent poster on my blog. Expect posts on everything from my December grocery challenge, to how I am going to use supplies that I have on had to make and package gifts (yay for my craft supply and fabric stash), to finding holiday inspiration (and just plain old inspiration) in the every day. I think I have a lot of good things planned - and if you have any ideas along the way please share, I would love to hear about them.
