happy love thursday everyone.
i am feeling out of sorts this holiday season. unable to pinpoint just exactly why. lack of snow on the ground seems to be making me as restless as my kids. "how will santa come if there is no snow?!?!" even i seem to feel anxious about this. yesterday with good intentions and a list, hubby and i ventured out into the crowds to get the gifts on santa's list. i really expected to come home happy and done. silly me. nothing was exactly what i had envisioned to buy, so then i have a hard time committing to any of it since it was not what was in my mind's eye.. maybe i am over thinking it all. maybe this restlessness is just permeating everything, who knows? not me. typically i am the girl who has her holiday cards written and stamped by Dec 1st.... where are my cards this year? by the side of my bed. unaddressed. unsent. today i am making a vow to myself to make my list and just do it! cards first. i love getting cards in the mail. i have them hung all over my home from Christmases past, so i have no excuse to put it off any longer. i just feel a little stuck this year.
to get me more in the mood how about a little gift giveaway for one of you? Have you checked out all the great products at Paper Coterie yet? journals, recipe books, cards, calendars, canvases! so many great ideas to create something all your own with... Today I am offering one $50.00 voucher to be used in their shop on anything your heart desires. perhaps a last minute gift for someone else, or go ahead and indulge in something just for you. you totally deserve it!!! (santa told me you were good this year) ;)
just leave a comment here and i will randomly choose 1 winner and announce the winner here on the blog.
here's to getting in the holiday mood.
