The Christmas season sneaked up on me once again.
Y'all, I had been lulled into a false sense of security because I got our Christmas tree up BEFORE THANKSGIVING, something that has never, ever happened in our house. (I mean, it's been a policy of mine not to mix holidays, especially because I feel sorry for Thanksgiving always getting lost in the shuffle and all. But with the late Thanksgiving I gave in, JUST THIS ONCE!) I put the tree up--and not just one, but TWO trees!
I hate to admit it, but it felt GREAT.
"I have so much time," I sang to myself as I rocked gently in my yard swing, dangling my feet and closing my eyes in the late Autumn sun.
To celebrate, I put a sweet sale on my books and posted to Instagram and Facebook. I filled orders and thought about Christmas cookies.
It was lovely, simply lovely.
And then today it hit me: I FORGOT TO POST THE SALE ON MY BLOG.
I FORGOT TO POST THE SALE ON MY BLOG!
My dear blog friends, talk about a major brain toot.
I am so sorry I didn't post it here. I would like to blame the "early Christmas tree extravaganza" but honestly that's not fair to the trees.
And so...just for you, here is YOUR VERY OWN Christmas Sale in my shop:
My favorite thing of all is this Three Book Bundle: Flash, Walking with Henry, and Flash the Donkey Makes New Friends children's book. When you purchase a bundle, you'll receive a darling donkey cookie cutter as a thank you gift from me.
The cookie cutter comes packaged in its own little hoof-stamped gift bag, and the books are tied with twine and a wooden gift tag. All the books are signed and stamped, and can be personalized if you'd like! It would make a fabulous gift for someone you love (or for yourself, I might add.)
I am convinced that no Christmas Cookie collection will be complete without a donkey. For my special Christmas Cookie Cutout recipe, go here.
See how cute????

There are other items in the store as well: a donkey silhouette necklace, my special "Walk on!" necklace, and some frameable prints with some of my favorite sayings. Each is selected to remind you that you are loved and are special.
Be sure and use the code FLASH during checkout to receive a 15% discount on your entire order!
Now that I've come to my senses and realize that Christmas is NOT a long way off, and that sitting in swings whilst blissfully humming away is a poor use of my time, I have catapulted full-on into the preparations.
Let the baking commence!!
Let the gifts I've ordered be delivered by UPS, FEDEX, and the US Postal Service!
And, let's all stay tuned....for a re-launch of my online writing that I am planning for 2020. More about that later....:)
