handmade jingle bells

I’m always amazed how fast Christmas is over. There is such an enormous build up: two months I counted this year with decorations appearing in craft stores before Halloween. Even with all of that time, it’s amazing how busy everyone is right up until Christmas Eve.

Then everything comes to an abrupt end. The lights will stay up until New Year’s Day, but the music is gone from the radio, decorations are on clearance and the craft stores are all focused on Valentine’s Day.

Well, I’m not ready for candy hearts. I’ll be getting back into gear with some handmade gifts that I couldn’t blog about until after they had been given. I also have a couple tutorials. Don’t put away those jingle bells yet!

    Your title just about had me in a panic! LOL!

    I would like to note a certain hobby store had Christmas decorations in JUNE!!! So we don’t have too long to wait.

    Thanks for the alert and I can’t wait to see what you post!

    It’s so true, what you said. There’s so much buildup, and then boom, it’s over…. I can’t bring myself to put away Christmas decorations quite yet. Maybe later this week.
