holidazzle 2015 / elizabethcraneswartz.com there's only two weeks left until christmas and I'm probably more organized right now than usual but it feels like early november which is messing me up. I've holidazzled the house, watched my favorite movies (for the record: elf, love actually and national lampoon's christmas vacation) and I rotate through my holiday music preset channels in my car but when it's 65* in december it's real hard to get in the holiday spirit.

also, we have no christmas card photo yet so once again my cards will be a little late in the mail. I remember the days when I had these out the week after thanksgiving but that was when my only issue was keeping the kids clean and happy long enough to get a picture. now I have to wrestle with exam schedules and state lines.

oh! it may be quiet here on the blog but you can find me elsewhere - my sweet friend amanda spent all last week hosting a really great #sharethemeaning series on her blog. do yourself a favor and go check out all the fabulous women profiled and enter the five daily giveaways! also, I'm up next on my friend jaime's annual 'what's in my stocking series' if you're looking for some fun stocking stuffer ideas.

UPDATE: card art '15 is IN THE BOOKS (or more accurately, in the mail)
