I tell myself that I'm going to be done shopping and wrapping and baking and and and.....by the first weekend in December so that I can really enjoy the Christmas season, and every year I find myself a few days before Christmas still plugging along with various projects (and often frantically wrapping everything on Christmas Eve)! I will say that this year I did do better than in the past, I had most of the kid's stuff done before December 1st. All would have been good had I not decided to make several things this year! Don't get me wrong, I love crafting, and I think that a handmade gift is better than any that can be given! It's just that I'm a procrastinator, and I have a really hard time focusing on something that isn't in dire danger of missing it's deadline! I am getting better at this, and have been working diligently on a project for Ana for weeks, but the fact still remains that I still have a lot to do! Thank goodness Greg has the rest of this week off! I hope the kids won't miss me too much as I practically move myself above the garage to my craft room! My new goal? Be done everything by lunch time on Thursday so we can enjoy a leisurely after dinner drive light viewing, and a calm, stress free Christmas Eve!
More to come on the homemade/refurbished gifts I've been working on!
