Holiday Planning Part 1

Tis the Season to be baking, crafting and everything in between.  This year for the Christmas Season I've started off strong!  I hit the stores on Black Friday and took advantage of the sales to get a bunch of gifts (toys, clothes and DVDs) for my nieces and nephews.  I printed out a great checklist, courtey of my sister's BFF, Martha Stewart which I highly recommend.  While I'm not on track 100% with the checklist its given me a great starting point in so much that I have already started addressing my Christmas Cards.  Its December 1st and I'm doing Christmas Card!  Totally unheard of for me; I'm so proud of myself. :) 

Tonight the wrapping station will be setup so that I can get my wrapping grove on which will help me to make sure I'm on target with my gifts and prevent a Christmas Eve shopping mad rush.

Also, my Sister-in-law (SIL) is planning a cookie swap that I shall be participating in.  I can't wait, what should I make?  Chocolate reverse cookies?  Brownies?  Thumbprint cookies? 

Now I just need an idea for a crafty garland for my mantle.  Any ideas?
