Christmas shopping

Tomorrow I'm going to start my Christmas shopping. I'm usually pretty much done by now so it's a bit stressful just starting now. I don't have too much to buy which is nice but I'm stuck on what to get for gifts. My mother has mentioned in the past that she likes mothers rings, so thaty may be a nice gift for her. I like handmade of course so I'll check out the craft shows first and see what I can find. The last two years I bought Ma and Pa a nice photo/picture in a frame, so I can't do that again! I'm stuck on my sister as well. I won't have to worry too much about Troy I don't think since we have spent so much on our house we aren't expecting anything. We'll see!

Kenya Farm

Alright. I've been writing a lot about the Kenya Farm project that I'm working on at the moment and I've started a separate blog just for the farm and everything that's going on with that. Check it out here: Kenya It looks like some pieces are coming together and I'm excited about what this is all going to look like very soon. I have some cards available for those who want to donate to the project in someone's name for the holiday season. I should be receiving them in the mail soon and will post a photo of them when I receive them, I'm very excited about that! More soon!

gift shopping

I've been starting to think about Christmas. Usually this time by now I'm done my shopping but I haven't even starte this year, been so busy with lots of stuff... new jobs, house, charity stuff :) I like shopping online and found some great retirement gifts for the foodie. Perfect gifts for people who love food! It's nice to get and give treats like these sometimes! I don't know how creative my gifts will be this year, but I'll try to do something unqiue for people! I'm going to try and hit up a craft show or two but it's tricky now that I work on Saturday's. I'll post an update on that soon.
