Holiday Gift Giving – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

This time of year is stressful for a lot of people, so I asked my readers to share their blog posts about holiday gift giving. It looks like everyone’s already getting into the holiday spirit, because this is one of our biggest Carnivals ever! Much appreciation to Wrap iT for sponsoring this edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival.

I’m pleased to introduce three first-time participants:

I’m also excited to announce that Christine Salberg has become a Star Blogger with Teaching Children About Holiday Gift Giving, and that Hazel Thornton is now a Superstar Blogger, with her post Wish List Etiquette!

Please get to know Katherine, Hilda, Lisa, Christine and Hazel by reading their posts, leaving comments, and/or connecting with them on social media.

A former professional organizer, I’m now a Web Designer and Care Plan Specialist. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
