As you know, I’m one of the round-up editors for CraftGossip. I try to keep the posts seasonally appropriate (such as feature back to school crafts a few weeks before most kids start school), but this week, I think I pulled the trigger too fast on Halloween craft time! Maybe it’s because I started to see Halloween stuff in Michael’s weeks ago, or that the date for the pumpkin spice latte was circulating around Facebook, but I couldn’t help but post these 10 Halloween Treats for Kids. In August. Gah! Normally I’m the Scrooge, grumbling that it’s always too early for any talk of holiday stuff.
So, in the interest of providing you guys with the stuff you want to see (here and on CraftGossip), is there some kind of unwritten rule for how far ahead of a holiday you should start thinking about prep? When do YOU normally start getting down to business on your fall and winter holiday crafts?
