We have officially surpassed the Christmas threshold that is December 1st and now it's time to dive headfirst into complete holiday madness. Who's with me?!? If you're reading this, there's a good chance you made it through the craft show extravaganza that hits Regina every November and now you've got your stockings hiked up in preparation for tinsel, tiny boxed chocolates, and tons of presents!!
Or maybe you're like me and haven't even started your Christmas shopping yet, that's okay too. There's plenty of holiday madness to go around. Speaking of that, I've put together a few ideas that will help get you in the mood for gift giving, celebrating, and all things Christmas-y.
