The problem with having a blog is that there is this pressure to have something profound to say.
Unfortunately I’ve got nothin’.
So I’ll leave you with some glimpses of what I’ve been up to lately. Prepping for Christmas by making some handmade gifts. I’m including links, of course, to the sites where I got the original ideas!
This is an anniversary ornament I made last year for a friend of mine that incorporated her wedding invitation. I’m making another this year for a special couple for Christmas! I got the inspiration and instructions here.
Working on a memorial pendant for my mom that has my Dad’s handwriting on it. This is my first try… not happy with it because it isn’t smooth enough so I’ll be trying another version today. Will keep you updated!
Crocheting up a storm for gifts. Ruffly scarves (instructions here) and owl hats.
Gifties for friends – fuzzy socks and nail polish. Aren’t these the cutest? Free printable tags here.
And last, but not least, just in case you’ve started thinking I’m one of those women who have it all together – crafting handmade gifts, perfectly well-behaved children, and a picture-perfect home – well, think again. Those of you who know me well know that cleaning is always last on my list!
This is what my living room looks like this morning:
Yes, yes, those are dirty clothes on the floor, a mound of knotted yarn under the tree, and books, legos, movies, a tape measure, blankies, and shoes that have not found their true home yet.
Maybe I’d better get off the computer. 😉
