200 days to Christmas

200  days to Christmas! (I know, my mum is swearing at me right now!)

If you've been reading here for a while now, you'll know that last year I ran a series of blog posts called "100 days to Christmas"

My idea was to countdown to Christmas with memories, gift ideas, crafts, and inspiration. Check out my guest post at Daily Life - Bits and Pieces yesterday, about last year's project.

But last year I wasn't as organised as I thought I was. I relied too much on pinterest, and not enough on actually DOing anything to make Christmas different to previous years. (Yes, the kids had an awesome day, the grown ups had an awesome day, but it wasn't "different" to other years, it was just the same-old-same-old)

So I'm doing it again in 2012. (Because I have so much spare time on my hands.)

And this year, instead of just asking here if people want to guest post, I'm going to get over my fear of making the first move, and email people to ask if they want to be part of this project. (Proactive me!)

I'm going to stick loosely to my current blog schedule - less pinterest more do on Mondays, words on Wednesday, 5 on Friday, Saturday recipes and Sunday quotable quotes, and see what themes evolve over the next 100 days of planning posts (yes, my house is about to start looking like Christmas!)

If you would like to guest post, please email me {}
