Christmas Magic

I absolutely love Christmas. Every year, I want to give at least one handmade gift to everyone I know. And, every year, on Christmas Eve I am either (a) regretting the fact that I didn't do it (b) burning the midnight oil to finish a project or, most likely (c) all of the above. So, this year, I'm starting earlier! There are almost three months until Christmas and I have to be able to get at least a few projects done between now and then.

I don't usually get the Christmas bug until Thanksgiving and by then it is too late to start crafting (for me at least). So, wish me luck, and, share your best homemade gift ideas with me! (By the way--my friend Sandy is my role model on this front. She always makes beautiful ornaments, scrapbooks, quilts, etc., etc., etc. She has great ideas--so I'm hoping she'll share a few).

Oh--and--if any of you are eager to stock up on your holiday wrapping supplies, Evan's preschool is having its annual gift wrap fundraiser. I'm buying my share, but I thought I'd put it out there in case anyone is interested! Click here if you want to check it out. You can order magazines and candy, too, if you're so inclined!

I've been trying thinking of ideas for you! I will let you know as soon as I find something good. But you are motivating me too, I need to get started on my ornaments so I'm not still working on them the day before-or the morning of!
