I blame TV for my early festive spirit this year. Yesterday I caught about 20 minutes of what I would call a new holiday classic, The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black. I just love this movie, and was sad when I had to leave to take my son to a Halloween party (while watching a Christmas movie, see my dilemma!).
Now, if you're like me, you're just now starting on the ol' Christmas list, and if there is anythingon there that needs to be handmade/sewn, like there is on mine, then it's definitely time to start thinking Christmas-y thoughts. Actually, let's admit it. I'm already behind, and I haven't even started! November is awfully late in the year to be starting gifts. But I'll just put some of my favorite Christmas movies in the DVD player, and get to work.
Home Alone is next on my list! "I can't make ornaments out of the old fish hooks, with dry worm guts stuck on them!"
