Gearing Up For Holly Jolly Week!

Hello my friends. Is everyone 3 lbs. heavier like me after eating all this food for the past 3 days? Please say yes! Even if it's just to make me feel better! LOL!
I'm really excited about Holly Jolly week coming up. I thought I better give you a run down so you can mark your calendars and prepare your posts to join in the fun.
But no matter what we do, let's keep in mind why we even celebrate. None of this means anything if we don't remember that Jesus came to this earth to be born of a virgin and to be raised up to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.

Okay let's break down the week!

Monday: Quick Christmas crafts for us busy women. I made some cute ornament crafts that I want to share with you and show you how to make yourself.

Tuesday: More crafts. I couldn't put them all in one post. But I didn't want to leave them out.

Wednesday: Link up your favorite Christmas Cookie Recipe!

Thursday: Here I'm going to share my favorite Christmas Music, Books, Websites etc. and I want you to post yours and link up too.

Friday: For this weeks Friday Funnies, I want you to post a Christmas Themed funny.

And guess what? I'm having a fantastic giveaway. What is it? Well you will have to wait till next week to find out. I'll post what the giveaway is the day before Holly Jolly Week starts and how you can enter.
Trust me it's going to be good!
Please feel free to grab the button and spread the word. Just link it up to this post!

Oh and fair warning! This is when my OCD is at it's worst! LOL! So be on the lookout for some silly posts about my Seasonal OCD problem! Hee! Hee! Click here if you weren't with me last year so I can bring you up to speed!



  1. Oh man..I can try but I am not making any promises...I for sure can do the Christmas Cookie Recipe!!!

    Have a great day!

  2. Kim,

    Only YOU have room for an extra 3 lbs. sheesh!

    Holly Jolly week sounds fun AS USUAL :) can't wait!!

  3. I can't wait to see everyones ideas.
    You and me and our OCD. Gotta love it.

  4. It's December 1st! Woo-Hoo!...oh, not yet? Well, almost...good enough for me...the decorations are going up anyhow! :)

  5. Sounds like so much fun my friend! And yes, I gained weight over Thanksgiving - ugh.

    Can't wait to see all your crafty ideas! Big crafting-is-hard-work-that-requires-large-quantities-of-chocolate hugs to you! :)

    Have a lovely Monday!

  6. I love seeing and hearing about everyone's ideas! This sounds like a great idea.

  7. This is a great idea and sounds like fun.

  8. Just what I need to get in the mood! Idano why, but I just can't seem to wrap my pea-brain around CHRISTmas this year. Too much elsewise going on. Maybe I'll take an hour a day during HJW and just focus on IT... or, more to the point, UNfocus on all this other stuff. Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. 8-}

    Love ya loads, sweet thang!
    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  9. This is a grand idea! Can't wait to see what everyone has to contribute!

  10. You only gained 3 pounds?? ;D

    I'm looking forward to seeing the ornaments and crafts. I try to make ornaments every year so you might have an idea for me. :)

  11. WOW! I just learned a tip from Nancy Wilson (wife of Douglas Wilson, one of my favorite authors). Anyway....a tip for speed sewing.....eat chocolate and drink coffee while sewing.....I immediately thought of you!!

  12. I can't wait to hear what you have up your sleeve for crafts and everything next week. :D Would love to do more crafting! I'm more crafty in the kitchen..

  13. too bad I am so not crafty. jeje

    Sounds like so much fun. Your Christmasy blog totally inspired me to change my blog background. I am working on it this week. ;) Hope it turns out as nice as yours.

    I may join you for a Christmas Cook recipe. I am doing badly on following memes these days. A lot of Christmas Crunching over on the fitness blog. ;)

    A Big Holly Jolly hug,
    Dani Joy
