The holidays can be pretty stressful on people. What to cook? What to wear? When to get together with 2 different families and if they get divorced that can easily multiply to 8 different families, dealing with THAT family member...UGH!!!!!! So every year, I usually start my Christmas shopping in August. I have been able to get away with this since my kids are small and they pretty much love anything. We do draw names on my side of the family and I make them draw names in July or August. I know, they always roll their eyes at me too!!! It really does take an added stresser off of you as the holidays get closer though.....trust me!!!
So, this weeks question is: Have you even started your Holiday Shopping?
Check out more fun over at An Island Life.

I've picked up a few things but I try not to start too soon just to fight clutter building up since we live in an apartment.

Yep. About a 1/4 of the way done for my kids & mostly done for extended family. I blame my sis & sil. They are both big into planning whereas I'm usually not so much.

I started a little over a month ago! I just pick things up when I see them on sale.

Prior to today I had bought a few items here and there. Today while out we accomplished gifts for Chanukah for both of my nephews. Now I just need to make sure it is ok to get my niece a Cabbage Patch Kid.

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
