21 Days to a Simple Christmas: Day 9 & Update

Join the 21 Days to a Simple Christmas Challenge

It’s Day 9 of the 21 Days to a Simple Christmas Challenge!

If you decided to send Christmas cards yesterday, today’s the day to get to work on them. Design the card, write the letter, or buy your cards.

Also, organize your Christmas address list, make sure you have stamps and address labels, and anyone you need to to get their address or an updated address. (We keep a running address spreadsheet on the computer with all our s in it and try to update it throughout the year so that there’s not a mad scramble for addresses at the last minute.)

Day 9 Project & Update

1. Read chapter 5 from Celebrating & Savoring a Simple Christmas if you didn’t get a chance to read it yet. (Did you sign up for your free copy yet? If not, click here and fill out the form to be emailed a copy.)

2. Finish your Christmas cards within the next 48 hours.

3. Address, stamp, and mail your Christmas cards no later than Saturday.

My Update: Since we’ve opted to simplify and not send cards this year, I get to skip today’s project. 🙂

    I will be working on my Christmas newsletter today. I’m hoping to be able to get it done and printed if my printer will cooperate with me. It’s dying a slow death but I’m trying to use up the ink before it totally kicks the bucket.

    Here’s my post for today,
