My Christmas Shopping has officially begun.
I finally faced the facts. Christmas is indeed coming and time is not slowing down. Rats.
Now that the facts have been faced, I now have to determine what gifts to buy everyone.
On a budget, no less. So, I am hoping that my favorite pasttime, that is, tinkering with crafts of all sorts, will pay off.
I found my inspiration this year in Martha Stewart's Holiday Handmade Gifts, on the stands now.
Homemade goodies of all sorts. I hope that there will be something for everyone. We'll see!
Here is what I want to make, so far:
Candles in unique vessels
Sweets - truffles and cookies
I can't give away all my secrets, since a particular gift-recipient may be reading, but suffice it to say that I should be keeping myself busy on the weekends!
Does anyone else have plans to make some handmade gifts this Christmas?
