OK, I love it. I'm in. Now to come up with ideas. I guess that's the hard part .
Oy. I better get to work.
I am trying to get most (or at least, a lot) of my gifts made this month. Last year I waited until December, and I was so busy that I couldn't relax and properly enjoy the holidays. Today I made 4 car rolls for little boys on my list. I put up pix of a couple of them on my blog. I guess I am still "on a roll," lol, because I think I am about to go in there and try to do a pencil roll that will hold a whole set of 24 watercolor pencils. The first one will be for me, but if I make it work right, then I will buy a new box of the Kimberly kind and make another roll for one of my sisters' gift. I might do a paintbrush roll for her instead, if the design i am planning does not work out. And while I have the rainbow fabrics out for the pencil rolls, I will do a crayon roll for fat crayons to put up for my baby's stocking; i think he might be ready for crayons by then.
I am trying to decide if I should wrap these gifts as I make them or just stash them in the chest and wrap them later. Probably should wait on the wrapping.
Rere, how's the basement?
I made six gifts last night! I did four colored pencil rolls, and two for fat crayons, for my baby and a little nephew.
I am thinking if I get most of my gifts made now, then that will leave me with lots of time in December for making chocolates and cookies and other yummy stuff
