I know that Christmas may not be on your mind right now because we still have Thanksgiving to get through. However, if you really want to be organized now is the time to start thinking about Christmas cards. If this is something you like to do I would start to think about what kind of card you will send, what will be the picture, etc. Do you need to hire a photographer or take the kids somewhere to get their picture taken? A friend of mine has a great stationery company and she can design your Christmas card for you. If you order now you can get 15% off the cards and free shipping. I think she if offering this until November 15th. Another idea would be to offer someone personalized stationery as a gift. I love her designs! Check out her website at www.daninotes.com.
I am now a stay at home mom but in my former life I was a French teacher--I have my B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. (next step to Ph.D. in French literature). I love teaching and miss it but in the meantime I am enjoying operating a part-time home organizing and design business. Contact me for more info if you are interested!
