Do any of you wait until December to come up with ideas of things to make for people for Christmas? I do. I used to obsess over it for months and months - I call those my "Wonder Woman" years. For me, trying to make homemade things for everyone on my list became too overwhelming when my kids were little. I was trying to "keep up" with my very creative friend who had 4 kids under the age of 5 and seemed to do it ALL with such ease. I was not one of those people, and the holidays became very stressful for my whole family. I finally wised up before it was too late and understood my own limits much better. So, I spent many years not making anyone anything. Now that my kids are older, I am again interested in stressing myself out and making things for people. I found this great blog somewhere today (sorry, I don't remember where!!). This blogger pulls ideas from a bunch of other blogs posting about things to make! LOVE it - just what I needed. It seems to all be in one place. Just click on her labels that interest you.
We'll see if I can finish my first-ever quilt in the works for my daughter ( SHHHHH!! Don't tell her - it's a surprise!), and make a few other things as well. If not, I will go to back to plan B.
