No idle hands here, my machine has been humming along, turning out aprons of all kinds, quilt blocks for a baby blanket and my craft room is so festive with all things merry and bright, all laying about! I love this time of the year, but it can get overwhelming at times, so please pace yourself! I'm trying to keep my Etsy shop full plus make some Christmas gifts too so I know how stressful the holidays can become. I make a daily to do list, trying to accomplish one project at least per day. This satisfies my creative urges and allows time to do some baking and decorating the house for Christmas, which I do in stages so I won't get stressed or worn out! Keeping it simple helps too, and this year, I'm switching it up and decorating more simply but still give the grandkids that wow factor they love!
It's all over too soon, so start early and make it last longer! The cheer is in the air, the sights and sounds of Christmas are everywhere and you will find me in my craft room, sewing or crafting with coffee close by and thoughts of simple goods filling the house with Christmas! Handmade is from the heart, spread some holiday cheer and share that special sewing with a loved one or two! Who's making Christmas gifts this year?
