This is an old image...maybe from two years ago or so. I would love to post photos of what I've been up to in terms of "elving," but my iphone is not uploading properly and I've been too busy/lazy to try and solve the problem.
This year, I decided to take the pressure off myself as far as crafting for everyone in our lives. I decided to set a reasonable budget and shop within set boundary. It actually worked out and for the first time I'm not completely stressed. It has felt nice to just enjoy and not rush to complete projects. Truth is, I'm just really exhausted this year. Our lives have been fun-busy...but this mama is tired.
Here are a few links to things I've made for our sweet loved ones so far:
(My first!!!) Arigurumi-Heloise the Hen
chocolate-covered pretzels (teacher gifts)
one of these fabric ornaments
Now the only thing left is some cookie making later in the week.
This Christmas season, I am missing my sweet Grandfather terribly.
The holidays just don't feel the same without him...
