A Public Service Announcement

Friendly Reminder
Oh my. I do believe I've already started to feel that holiday panic creep up on me despite still having a good week and a half left. How are you feeling so far? Have you finished up most of your shopping/projects/baking, etc? Any of it?

xoxo,
Rachel

I still have a mountain of gifts to buy and things to do before Christmas! And can' start any of it until finals are over this week. Definitely feeling the stress!

Tammy said...

Love this announcement. Loads and piles of things to do. Stuck on the couch most of the time at 37 weeks pregnant, but it'll get done! And it will be fun.

Rubyellen said...

I always forget how much there is to do! But tonight we are going out in the cold to look at Christmas lights in the city. SO fun. And I am DYING over those little teensy trees' on otp of your chalkboard! Be Still My Heart!

For the first time ever, I was DONE with gift-buying the first week of December. Love the stress-free holiday time. Of course, all the stress will come back next week when I'm working, baking, and wrapping all the last-minute gifts my husband buys!

Missy said...

I am all done, even down to the chocolates and alcohol! I just need a turkey! I'm soo excited for Christmas!

10 days?! are you serious?

J. Tyrus Williams said...

I will be celebrating Valentines Day with gifts this year instead of Christmas due to lack of time, energy and funds.

Kristen @ ladybug-blessings.com said...

ahh too much to do!!

rachelinaustin said...

Working 12 hours days is really imposing on my shopping time. I hope I don't have to be that person shopping on Christmas Eve!!

The stress is building with each day!

Artsy Momma said...

Shopping is done (yay!) As for baking and creating I gave myself the year off so I am done. I am feeling kind of lost as everyone else is rushing around me. I am going to try and enjoy it though, this is a first for me!

harmonybatham said...

all done! I LOVE Christmas and I like to get it all done early so I can enjoy it:)

Blondie said...

I can't believe it!!! Where does the time go? I have been done shopping, wrapped, and cards sent, but still feel the pressure and I don't even know about what!!! Kori xoxo

I'm so behind this year ... little things like teachers' gifts, food for early holiday parties this weekend, and craft/gifts to finish up are TOTALLY sneaking up on me. ;)

Brooke said...

Not gonna lie, I kinda love you and hate you for announcing that! I have so much left to do. In the immortal words of Charlie Brown, " Ugghh." xo

♥ A. said...

Ok NOW I'm nervous too!

~Valentina~ said...

Thanks for the sweet reminder... I'm still working in some gifts... hopefully everything will be ready before Christmas day!

AJ said...

Thanks for the PSA! I'm making gifts like crazy right now. I'm doing all handmade this year - it's a lot of work! I'll probably be knitting as my hubby drives us to my parents' house >_<

Bonnie said...

I haven't done anything but put up the tree. I can't believe Christmas is coming so soon. I have about a million gifts to make and hopefully not many to buy. Christmas totally snuck up on me.

lingering daydreams said...

It is funny how a lot of little things is actually like one BIG thing. Yeah... the stress is starting hit....

Love how you staged the announcement, super cute!

I love the the holiday season, even when it starts feeling crazy.

Jam said...

Presents are wrapped and under the tree.... good thing since I'm having a baby tomorrow!

Stephanie said...

Why-oh-why did you have to tell us that we have (less than) 10 days left? I like being in denial...

Lyssalove said...

wow! 10 days... that just doesn't seem right!! I'll be cutting close this year with shopping and wrapping... and all!

Desiree Fawn said...

I still have quite a bit of sewing that I'd like to get done, and a few gifts to buy, but we're going SMALL this year because we have to buy a car, and that's alright with me <3

amelie522 said...

well, i'm not done with shopping yet, but i don't have much left to buy so i'm not super stressed about it. BUT my baby is now almost one week overdue, and i want him out before christmas...or all his wonderful first christmas garb will be all for naught! and, i just want to see his beautiful face. we want our ezra before santa gets here!

Danae said...

Just 10 days?!
I have a lot of things to do before Christmas...!

my best friend jules said...

I know! Xmas is approaching so very fast this year! I just started my own Xmas shopping yesterday, and luckily found most of them! ...but I'm so looking forward to the food shopping part! Yummy stuff awaits! :)

I thought I was done my baking until 13-year-old fingers found their way into the cookie tins stashed in the freezer and the belly attached to those singers slowly filled with chocolate chip cookies and scotchies ~sigh~ so back to the kitchen for me this weekend.

Molly said...

Oy, Christmas is so close! Still have to finish up presents and get my husband and myself packed for our two weeks of traveling! Thanks for the sweet reminder :)

I still have everything left to do! A single case of head lice hit our home so I've been knee deep in laundry, giving baths & vacuuming furniture. The only thing I've done so far is cut the material for a bag I'm making my daughter. I'm definitely feeling the pressure.

julia said...

Don't remind me... I was so proud when I had 2 presents at the end of November already - still only have these two though....

miss thrash said...

sadly no, ive barely started any of my projects, or baking

Skooks said...

I've got 2 softies to make (from scratch . . . no pattern pieces cut yet!) and maybe a few pairs of diy babylegs to whip out before the 22nd. Oh my. What am I doing on the internet!

George said...

Egads! Your post just gave me a little of that holiday panic you were talking about! But in a good way! I can't believe it's almost here! Yikes!

done nothing yet. just moved and all the boxes arrived today. felt like xmas, though. i got a huge box with all my shoes :D (after one month without them i really missed them).
and the little lady got a box full of toys. now that she's almost one year she realizes what toys are and she keeps hugging each one of them! (she got the box 5 hours ago...)

Glocal Girl said...

What a great countdown board you have! I JUST finished up the last of my christmas shopping today... AH and on a SUNDAY! The worst.

Good luck finishing up!

Happy holidays from snowy Holland!!
