If you’re a long-time reader you know it. And if you’re new you’re about to find out. Here it is…I’m a dyed in the wool winter freak. Every tiny bit of the season fills me with excitement practically until I am ready to burst. White chocolate peppermint mochas? Awesome. Fresh, sparkly snow? Hell yes! Crazy oversized scarves in loud, loud colors? Essential. So naturally, it follows that I love Christmas. Mostly because it’s the perfect time of year to share handmade goodies to anyone remotely close to me. Or throw a rockin’ party.
But now that means I am facing a GIANT list of to-dos. And it looks especially huge because we are officially doing an all-handmade Christmas. To tell the truth, I am still really thrilled because I have been trying to get everyone on board for such a thing for a few years. And it worked! Well, for the most part. My husband is exempt because he doesn’t make stuff and doesn’t have the time to make stuff. I am still counting this as a win.
As a lovely reader, you are going to win as well! Here is just a few things I will be doing over the next few months:
- I will be joining in with Sew Mama Sew for another wonderful round of December Giveaway Day.
- I’m bringing back start small. I have a massive amount of work to do. So to get it done, I had better break those tasks into chunks.
- Holiday themed goodies for you. I am envisioning gift tags. We will see what I come up with…
So I guess this means I had better start planning, huh? Time to bust out the binder a pen and a biiiig mug of tea. See you tomorrow for my first step into holiday madness.
