Get Real(istic)

This can't possibly be true. It's really only nine days until Christmas? I certainly planned on being like Santa's elves and working steadily all year long on my gifts for Christmas, but here it is, December 16th, and the last-minute rush is on. Handmade. That's what I'm doing this year. And is there anyone else out there who likes the word handmade so much better than homemade? The lights on the tree, the music playing softly, some hot chocolate with a candy cane in it. Ahhh...

But I think I better take my Santa hat off the sewing machine and get to work.

We'll do anything to avoid getting at what we really 'should' be doing, won't we? Blogging, taking photos, blogging.... ;-)

Oh yeah... what am I doing here???

Haha we were glad to see you, even if it meant you were procrastinating! And your hat looks kind of cute posed there on your sewing machine!

Isn't it crazy the grand ideas we have for handmade (and yes, it's better than homemade) gifts in June? Then come to find out it's a week before Christmas and the projects still aren't completed? And then right after Christmas we say, "This year I'm going to start in JANUARY!" and then another year rolls around and we haven't ??? what are we thinking? (or is it just me that has these crazy ambitious thoughts???)
