Homemade Christmas ~ A Few Gift Ideas

Since we are attempting to do an entirely homemade Christmas (except for the kiddies) I have decided to give the following to many of the recipents on my list. These are by far the easiest things I have ever made and can be totally customized! They were so easy to make in fact, I have decided to add them to my craft booth in November!

Christmas To Dos....

So, I am starting a new job on the 11th. Which means my time working on crafts is going to become much more limited. However, DH has promised me the time I need to do Christmas. We shall see.

My goal for this week is to get as much done as possible...I'm laughing as I type this. No, seriously, I want to get as much paperwork and first round of attempts at projects done by Friday, so I can "Celebrate Me" on Saturday.

One other thing I am struggling to do is master grocery lists. I'm hoping I can develop a game plan for stocking away in the coming months, so as to not have a huge grocery bill in November and December.

My notebook is still unfinished. I know what my problem is...I am a perfectionist. That's why FlyLady never worked for me. Hopefully, that too can be marked off my list this week.

Still so much to do...

Christmas in July has ended, yet I still find myself with so much left to do. I did get a good bit the way of paperwork anyway. There are many projects I intended to begin, but have not. That's the story of everyone's life though right?

Here is one quick and easy project I did manage to take a stab at. While attempting to stamp the last two letters, the "Munchkins" decided they needed to help. I also made a matching pen. (not pictured)

In the next few days I hope to get some altered notebooks completed, as well as a stab at some luggage tags. We shall see....
