One of the things that I love about the holidays is actually doing my holiday crafting right in the thick of the season–I know. Nuts, right?!

Yeah, yeah…I sometimes like to think I will get it all done ahead… Christmas in July and all that yadda yadda…. Aaaaaand… that’s as far as I get. *chuckle*

For some reason, the idea of that kinda takes all the wind outta’ my holiday sails… And, I just can’t bring myself to go that route.

I wanna be sloshin’ nog, with a fire roaring, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on the tele, tree lights twinkling, snow falling, carols reverberating through the house, munchin’ on my mama’s sugar cookies (which happen to be the best ever in the history of the world) while I’m bustin’ out holiday tags, cards, gifty things and whatnot… Good times, good times…!

At any rate, as per my annual tradition  (*cough*cough*–procrastination…), I just made some Christmas 5MQ’s that I adore and figured I’d share.  Cuz, who knows… mebbe a few of you are like me… in the thick of it… ;)

  6. I’m always so happy to hear that other people wait until they’re in the “thick of it” (procrastinators – cough). I just love that card and am trying to think of a good way to do it on my Cricut. Thanks!
