I Think I Can, I Think I Can

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.


  1. Those monogram ornaments are so easy to make you can totally do it and not stress yourself out one bit. I made some last year for Dallin's teachers and my sister-in-law.

  2. sounds like an undertaking to me! I want to see one of these....why don't you make me one Deon?? Pleeeease? You will have to tell me about it.

    I'm excited to see this surprise quilt done!!

  3. I LOVE that blog link! Just too, too cute! Are those the monogram ornaments Erin was talking about on that blog? We can do those!! No problemo!! Let's talk :o)

  4. Yes, that's them.... ok, so I need YOUR vinyl machine to make you those!!


A little note from you? Thanks!
