With just 11 days until Christmas (is that right?!), we are in full holiday mode. There has been decorating and tree trimming, a couple of shopping excursions, and some crafts made. Naturally there is a lot more I’d like to create and make before the big day, but I’m taking care to not let my expectations run away from me. I want to enjoy this time, not try to cram so much into the days that by the time Christmas arrives I am a harried wreck.
A few of the things on my crafty holiday wish list:
I’d like to make and decorate sugar cookies. There are still a couple of knitted gifts on the needles, and I think of new projects on a near-daily basis. I saw this tutorial on making vintage paper medallions and can’t get it out of my head. Then there’s a slew of sweet felt decorations (garland, wreaths, ornaments) I’d like to try.
Then there’s all the domestic stuff that also needs attention. We’re hosting Christmas this year, so naturally I need to think about meals and making beds and all of the other details having house guests entails. Something will inevitably slip through the cracks, and I accept this. But I’m still going to try to get as many fun and tasty projects accomplished as I can in the next 11 days (while remaining peaceful and never breaking a sweat–wink wink). How about you?
