Wow. I had no idea it had been this long since I posted last. Time really gets away from me at the end of the year. I've been busily working away at all of the Christmas gifts I want to give this year. And I'm happy to report that I only have one left to finish. I really want to have it finished by Sunday night, if possible. Hopefully I can do it. Next week is super full of baking chores.
I'm hoping to get some pictures of the finished gifts during naptime today. If I can manage it, I'll slowly start posting a few of the ones that aren't spoilers. (Which means, you'll mostly just get to see the things I made for the few people I know for sure never look at my blog. Which means, my girls and my nieces and nephew. Pretty sure he never looks here, although I think his mom occasionally does.)
I'm thinking next year, I need to start on the Christmas gifts in January, because July was apparently not early enough. If it was, I'd have been finished by now. :/ This is particularly true since this year's projects were all fairly small-ish. Next year, I have several much bigger and more involved projects I would like to make for certain of my relatives. Yipes! So, basically, the day after Christmas, I'm thinking I should probably start some serious planning...
There's also the matter of several extremely neglected UFO's lingering downstairs. I'm getting sort of sick of having them nag at me every time I walk by them. I think I need to make an effort to get at least one or two of them finished next year. :(
Wow. My year is already full (and more than a bit hopeless looking) and it isn't even January yet. :)
Hopefully, I'll get some pictures up here soon. I know posts without pictures are incredibly boring. :) And between the sweeties I'll be whipping up in the kitchen this next week, and the snaps of a few Christmas gifts, I should have plenty to show for the next week or so.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a couple of shots from our doomed Christmas card photo shoot. The little one just did not want to cooperate. At all.
Sadly, the ones we had to use for the card weren't that much better than these. But at least she wasn't actually screaming in those...
And... that reminds me- I need to get those cards addressed and in the mail!!
