Jingle all the way!

My blogger friend Barbara asked me if I have my jingle on. Well Barbara, as a matter of fact, I do! I got my jingle on a couple of weeks ago while shopping at a mega craft store and was pulled inexplicibly toward the Christmas aisles. Oh, the glimmer, glitter, glitz and jingle! Oh, the shimmer, shine, sparkle and jingle! I couldn't resist a few bright baubles.

And a jaunty stamp or three........

Last Christmas passed in a going-through-the-motions blur as we waited for my grandson's liver transplant. His state of declining health overshadowed the festivities. He received his gift of life on Dec 30 and we have much to celebrate. I have a feeling my jingle, along with the garlands and the lights and the trees, will be all over the house, inside and out, before Thanksgiving.

Now of course there are some rules to follow in order to keep this search for early signs of emerging Christmas spirit going. Barbara instructed me to ask this question of three of my fellow bloggers, who must in turn ask the question of three of their friends. And as these things go, everyone you ask gets mentioned in a post and linked-to. So tell me, Amy, Tammy and Cindy: Do you all have your jingles on? I really want to know!

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!! I can't wait to post my response to this!

And I love all your glimmer and sparkle! And how Christmas-y it all looks w/out a drop of red!

Is November 8 (this Saturday) too early to start decorating for Christmas??

Hoooray for you, Lisa!! I know it's early, but forget the commercialization issue, this is a WONDERFUL HOLIDAY to celebrate as long as possible, even if you don't spend a penny! And for the artsy/crafty crowd, well, what's NOT to jingle about?? I love the little animations in your post!! XOXO

Oh, Lisa, you're asking the wrong person here. I'm Christmassed out. It's so much darn work and so commercialized. No matter how I try to keep it simple and unplastic, it still bugs the heck out of me.

Just call me Mrs. Scrooge.

We do get together with the kids and have fun but we always have fun when we are with the kids, Christmas or not.

I made sure my kids had wonderful Christmases when they were at home but now that they are gone, I really could care less.

Of course, with our Kylie girl, we go thorugh the motions but it's up to Erin, now, to do most of it.

Sorry to put a damper on things!

Tammy said...

I have my jingle on with making paintings for my family! I am also looking forward to decorating for Christmas. At the moment my house if covered with Thanksgiving/Fall decorations. I have my Christmas decorations in the queue!

This is a fun post and I'll have my list up for you my blog readers in the next few days. I think I'll have to whip up a Christmas picture for that post! Funny I actually sketched one out last night. Guess I'll be busy, busy adding colors to it tonight! Gosh I sure hope I have more than one blog reader. =) Come visit my site and post if you want to be jingled and weren't picked here. =) Ho, Ho, Ho, for now! Merry Jingle!
