Holiday Crafting 2017!!

Well its about that time again-

Time to plan, time to create, time to either have the holiday frazzle or the holiday relaxation??

Are you making gifts, buying gifts, both?

I tend to make things all year then look at my inventory and go from there. This year I made blankets and shawls (no scarves). Ive decided to cut WAY BACK on gift giving and spend more time doing things, going to events and having experiences with kiddo. Thats the plan right now anyway.

What are you making? Do you have a long list or a short list or no list?

I am working on tea cosies for the teacher presents this year. (I posted the fairy house one I did earlier this year in the project tracker thread.)I discovered that DD1's teacher's wife would love one so I decided to do them for all the teachers. So that means i need to do three. I done the main part of the first one. I'll do the other two and then do the decorations all at once I think. It's too depressing to completely finish one and then have to start from scratch again.

I'm going to make Christmas dresses for the Australian Girl dolls and, probably, the Lottie dolls as well. So that four dresses.

Other than that, I'm not sure. I've been pinning felt Christmas decorations on Pinterest so I might do some of those...

Hi there,
Not much crafting happening this year for the holiday season, but I plan on making a couple of dresses for DD's doll, and I'll probably help the kids make something for their teachers and the grandparents. I'd love to have a holiday where all of the gifts are handmade, but I'm glad to be at a place with realistic expectations for myself.
