Every year I tell myself that "next year I am going to start my Christmas shopping/gift making in July." Well, it's technically still July! ; )
This year I would like to:
- complete at least one painting that I will use for Christmas cards
- complete at least one baby quilt/blanket (I would really like to be able to give one to a family friend and one to the local Save-A-Life organization
- pour and paint plastercraft to give to the members of a women's ministry at church
- make my traditional fabric gift bags (I fill these with small gifts like teas, lotions, handmade ornaments, etc. for family and friends)
These are the things I'd really like to complete this year. Anyone else use their creative talents for gift giving? Who has actually started on things for Christmas? Please feel free to share your tips and ideas.
I see that this site has been updated so that I may be able to post photos of my crafts as I complete them. I hope to try that out! I have been extremely busy this year editing a book and volunteering. I am going to try to set aside some time for my crafts and get a headstart on Christmas this year.
Until next time ... Happy Crafting
