Lately I've been doing a lot of thinking about Christmas! I just can't wait!
Since this last year I have been doing a lot of sewing, creating, and following so many wonderfully inspiring sewing/crafting blogs, I am going to try to make all my gifts this year!!
I am going to try to only use fabric I already have to make my sewing projects. For example, I am going to make some makeup pouches, hotpad and dish-rag sets, and other small items for women.
The issue is going to be deciding on what to make for men, like my dad and brothers. I haven't the slightest clue! I am hoping I find some inspiration on my favorite blogs soon!
I'm also going to make some goodies this year to give out, such as peppermint bark, chocolate dipped pretzels, sugar cookies, and whatever else I decide on!
Lastly, I'm going to be doing something for myself, a December Art Journal! I got the idea from Ashley, over at The Creative Place! I love this blog so much!! She always has the best crafts!! Anyway, its basically a "scrappy" journal where you can record your daily doings, the month of December. A couple months ago, I had ordered a found papers pack from The Creative Place etsy shop. This journal will finally give me a chance to use the lovely papers she included! I will definitely try and post pictures when I finally get started on it!
Anywho, as I get going on my holiday projects and gifts, I will do my best to keep everyone informed!
