FROM THE PUBLISHER
Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day shenanigans of life, isn’t it? It feels like I just put the last of my straggler holiday decorations away and I need to get them out again. Sheesh. You know what I mean. I swear a holiday kitchen towel just recently went through the wash. I know I can’t be the only one who feels like this year moved at warp speed.
WITH A CAPITAL EM
My name is Emily and I’m a control freak.
(Everyone now – Hello, Emily).
I wish that admitting this problem really was the first step to solving it, but the truth is I think with more than 30 years of control freak behavior under my belt, changing is going to require a lot more than 12 steps.
FOR PETE'S TAKE
The ending to the original saying is drop. Shop until you drop. That is not the case these days and hasn’t been since Al Gore invented the Internet and retailers populated it with websites we can go broke on. When I was a kid my Christmas started with the arrival of the Sears catalog. Yes, I’m that old.
With the holidays in full swing, who has time for making crafts? We are busy shopping and trying to get those last-minute gifts for family and friends.
This month I wanted a craft that would be quick, easy and something fun my little elf could help with too.
