only a week til Xmas!

Are you ready? Shopping done? Everything all wrapped up with a bow on top?
I'm close. Picking up a couple more things today and waiting on packages...hope they get here in time!

Plus I have to get my Secret Santa Writer a gift with the Help the Elf project brought to you by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi over at the Bookshelf Muse We reveal our recipients on 12/19!

There are so many generous writers out there giving stuff away and encouraging us to do the same...

If you are looking for a gift to give or get, make sure you check out Angela & Gwen's Holiday Indie Giveaway

Brinda Berry is giving away a book trailer! If you don't have a book ready for that, it would be a great gift for one of your friends who might need one!

And don't forget, David P King is giving away a blog makeover to celebrate his 800+ followers on 12/20!

And lastly, if you're struggling with what to get your writer friends, Chuck Wendig has a nifty, or is that naughty? list of 25 gifts to get a writer for Xmas.

Shopping is just about done. Now I just need to get into the holiday spirit but that's been a tad more difficult this year... I think I need to eat more chocolate. (;

I have just a couple more things to buy but I am almost done and I am very calm, but then I did start the shopping back in September.

I have one more to get!

Working at the mall this last weekend was absolute chaos, and I know it's only going to get better from here :P

I bought some stocking stuffers today but I haven't even started shopping yet.
I always wait until the last minute.

Great info, Tara!
