    It's never too early. I almost got caught short just before Christmas Eve...... quilting my little heart out.
    I'm finding with special season project.....START them the season (or two) prior. Then you don't need to panic, just drink wine and eat chocolates and baking and kick back and enjoy.
    I've already started a line up of Christmas FSL ornaments for 2014.
    Sometimes I wake up Grumpy!
    Other times I just let HIM sleep.

      I made a few of these up after Christmas up to the final finishing and have them set aside to work on this summer. They're simple and so pretty when done.

          It's really cute, but I'm wondering if he is stealing from this gal.

            I start almost immediately after Christmas for the next year.
            First, I go to the stores and purchase Christmas Wrap for the next year ( I hand make all the gift tags to go with the Christmas Wrap ) .
            I then sit down, write out the names of the people I am going to buy for / make things for ( mostly make things for ) and then add up how much it's roughly going to cost. Then in January, I take 1/10 % of whatever I have budgeted for the gifts, and put it in an envelope in my purse for the next 10 MONTHS ( a couple of years ago, I opened a separate checking / saving account with a debit card so that I could have the cash readily available to me. ) This way, if I see something on SUPER SUPER sale ( I don't make all the gifts, as I have family and friends that like sweaters, linens etc ) I purchase it, take it home, wrap it, and put a white "sticky tag" on the package, ( about where I would put a bow later on ) and I WRITE the name of the person the gift is for, and what's inside the box. I then have a place in the house for a BIG box to put this stuff in ( under the basement stairs I have a closet I can lock ) When Christmas Eve comes, I get all the gifts out of the closet, and take a magic marker and draw "thru" the info on the tag, and then put a BOW on top of that tag, and place a GIFT Tag underneath the bow......

            Each year I make 4-5 gifts for that LAST MINUTE person who I have possibly forgot to make something or buy for ( a new friend etc. or sometimes my kids ask for a gift for someone too )

            When my kids were small, I would wait until when the "new" toys came out to buy their 2-3 new items they wished for.....that's the only gifts I have to wrap close to Christmas. This way, my kids got a lot more for their Christmas, because I was budgeting the entire year for it.

            I have done this for years, and it works like a charm for me. This way I have time to make out my Christmas Cards and do my baking too.
            It might not work for everyone, but it works for me ......

            Oh....I forgot to mention I have a small Rubbermaid container that I put all the receipts in from the items I have purchased, although thru the years, I have never had anyone asked to return something !
