Wow, is it already the end of October? How did that happen?! I have been busy busy busy trying to get my crafting done for the holidays, just to look at the calendar today and realize that I am nowhere close to being finished! Why is it that I decide on January 1st to have a handmade holiday this year, but then am unable to really get going until 2 months before the holiday…2 months…really?!
I guess part of the problem is that I seem to have crazy priorities, like making sure that my food is local, and made from scratch. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for me to be able to sit back and knit. Add to that my crazy children, and it ends up being a jungle!
My goal over the next several weeks is to do something somewhat crafty every day. Even if it is just knitting a few rows in one of my many work in progress knitting projects. My hope is that if I continue to do a little bit every day, I will be where I want to be by the week before Christmas, which is the week that we celebrate with Matt’s family.
Do you have any tips? Anyone want to come and be a mother’s helper for ummm…six or seven weeks? Typically I would ask my mom to help out, but she is not around during the week due to working, so I am left by my lonesome…hmmm…what to do!
