My confession

There will be no homemade Christmas this year. Oh, I might make a few items to give out here or there. And the more I think about it, the more I think about adding.
But, it's December 10. I have almost nothing done. My sewing room: a mess. Time: non existent. Patience: gone.
All of that means no homemade Christmas.

But you know what? I'm okay with that! I've done some shopping this year through lots of great little stores - on etsy, e-bay, on-line, etc, that I otherwise wouldn't have reason to shop from. I'm trying to get as much as possible from small places and also trying to buy other people's handmade items LOL! Don't get me wrong, some things will come from amazon or target or other such places - but I'm buying what I can from small businesses, and well, that sort of feels good to me!

I tried to have an etsy store. I know how awesome it is to get an order. And I've had good luck finding things I want to buy that are in my price range this year. And that feels so good!!

However, if you are still doing a handmade Christmas, give me an update! And also go visit my handmade Christmas group where there are ideas and pictures and links and lots of other good stuff!!

And well, I'm thinking next year I'll do better. Mostly because I just bought a new sewing machine that I am mostly loving (still trying to get to know her and we fought for a bit at first!)

Anyway, I hope everyone else is having a wonderful holiday season! We finally decorated the house today (that's how far behind I am = I usually do it after thanksgiving!) And tomorrow my darling son turns 3!! Yikes! Time sure is flying =)

  1. That's okay, Brandie! You don't have to do it all! I can't tell you how many great ideas I come up with that I never manage to follow through on.

    And I, for one, would totally be shopping on Etsy if I had the cash and people on my list who would truly appreciate it.


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
