Hey friends! I swear, weren’t we just here yesterday, me chatting on about something, you just wanting to see those dollars earned? It’s that time of year where I swear I blink and lose a week. I honestly thought it would be different this year. After all, summer was approximately 300 months long. This year, in fact, surely has been 30 months long, yet the month of December is zipping on past.
I’ve started wrapping Santa’s Christmas gifts. I’m playing with fire, I know, but I refuse to put the kid to bed and then spend the next 3- 3 1/2 hours this Christmas Eve putting together, wrapping, setting up, etc. Nope, this year it’s going to be a relaxed night, even if it kills me! Luckily with a small kiddo, her snooping is very much limited- not only has it not really occurred to her to go searching for presents, she’s also not able to get into the closet to mess! I’ve got a big ole tote in our bedroom closet that is housing the gifts, a bag with the stocking stuffers is put together and I’m doing my best to get all the family gifts wrapped this week so it’s just baking, fun and Santa gifts from here on out.
I’ve got a few more crafts to get out- I’ve got two orders to finish, two to ship and then I’m working solely on family gifts after that! I love to make home things. Is it cheaper? Ehhh, sometimes. I can definitely tell you the quality is there. The personalization is there. The time and effort is definitely there! Just today I spent an hour actually making two gifts (and that doesn’t include the time I spent designing it), but I can guarantee tears when the recipients open them, so it makes it all worth the effort!
