I think I am more excited for this Christmas than any other in the past. For one the kids are understanding the season, well at least Kira is. I love the music I get to play. I am so excited about my gifts this year. I am making our Christmas cards and all of our gifts this year. We really do not have a huge gift list like some people, so I I do not think it is too much. I am making dish towels for immediate family and friends. For all of the teachers and therapists which is an extensive list, I am making ornaments. I am making place mats and napkins for one of our gift exchange gifts and a set of ornaments for the other. I am making cozy pj's for Eric and the rugrats. I would also like to make a doll or something for them as well, so they have two or three gifts max from us.
I am so happy because all of my towels are pinned and ready to sew the last seam.
I wrote our Christmas card letter and have all of my addresses in my computer, ready to print.
I have finished five of the ten ornaments.
Next on my list
- Finish seams on towels
- Print Christmas cards and labels
- Decorate our Christmas Cards
- Finish all the ornaments for teachers
- Take our family picture this Saturday
- Sew pajamas for the kids and Eric' s gift
- Sew Place mats and napkins for the Gift Exchange
- Sew more ornaments for the other Gift Exchange gift
I feel better having made a list because all of these projects were running around in my head. I think I am being very adventurous but realistic too. I will document each gift and blog about it. I may even tutorial it....hmm
Now I am not so good at the wordiness of the tutorials I have seen, so I will take tons of pictures to pick up the slack where I fail.
I did not mean to but my list looks like a tree, hehe!
