Oh Man, do I love to make Holiday gifts....I hardly ever give anything not handmade anymore..... This is for a couple of reasons....
#1 For a fraction of the cost I can make something equally as beautiful if not more beautiful then something bought
#2 I like to give something from the heart
#3 I just flat out like to have any excuse to make stuff!!
But this year is overwhelming me.....I just have too many people to make for....and we are sooo broke this year....San Diego is killing us.....so I can't even run out and just pick up Starbucks cards or something....I've got to push through and get it done....
Derek has been gone for 31 days (nope not counting at all....) and so I have been doing double duty.....oh wait, triple duty with the kids and house....and not doing the greatest job at all. But, complaining aside......he comes back tomorrow and hopefully I can get it all done and he'll cheerfully support my Christmas Crafting all nighters.....or possibly pitch in and help me...oh no, never mind....he's not very crafty..... so maybe he'll massage my shoulders and bring me wine while I work..... Gosh, where's the elves when you need them??
