I'm not referring to not getting the things that you want- I'm just referring to the profound feeling of emptiness of my hands. I don't have any pressure on me to finish anything nor do I have a list of things pressing down on me yet do be done. Anyone else feel this way?

Now what should I do with all my time?

I think I'm starting on birthday and Christmas lists for the upcoming year. I'm slow and need the extra time.

I'm not yet, but sort of wish I was. I had to move on from Christmas directly into sons birthday party this weekend. I tend to make most decorations and such so I've been extremely busy this week. I'm actually exhausted now and am looking forward to empty hands for a minute.

I always get depressed after Christmas, this year was no different. I did start a pair of socks though, that seems to help a bit ;-) Last year I had a ton of unfinished projects, but I actually finished them all this year. I should just start knitting some washclothes for birthdays and next Christmas while it's dark and I can't do anything else!

Me!I have a project to do but it's house related and I'm feeling totally overwhelmed by it.So that's not helping.

There is a craft swap going on right now.Check it out.I signed up and I'm hoping that will help.
