Filling The Shop

I have been working hard to get things listed in my Etsy shop for the holiday season.


Every year I tell myself that I'm going to have all my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving and without fail I get a few presents early and get everything else at the last minute.   Are you one of those fabulously organized people that have everything done early or are you a horrible procrastinator like me?
