I have decreed that this will be the last year that I use manufactured Christmas dishes.  I have talked about making my own Christmas plates for quite a while, but I haven’t done it.  The dilemma is that I don’t know what I want the dishes to look like.  So, I have promised to donate my current Christmas dishes to Grifton Mission Ministries after this season.  That way, I don’t have any back-up plates for next year.  I hope this will help me to focus my ideas and follow through on my commitment.
