Thinking ahead…

I can’t believe it’s almost ::gulp:: September! It’s almost pumpkin spice frappuchino time, football season, cooler weather and well, time (for me) to start thinking about the holidays.

I can’t help it. I really can’t. I love the holiday season in an unhealthy obsessive way. Hubs will jokingly put on Elf at random times, and when I hear the opening credits, I can’t get the song out of my head for a solid 2 days. Heck, now it’s in my head. Ahh Buddy the Elf! :)

Since I am now sewing, I really really want to stay true to one of my 101 goals.

I can’t believe I have less than a year to complete those goals, too! Eek!

Goal #6:  buy handmade or make all Christmas gifts for family and friends one year

It’s terribly ambitious, I know, but I think I can actually swing this. Not giving away who gets what, but here are some tutorials/ideas.

Crayon Roll
Laptop Sleeve

Garden Tote
Garden Tool Belt
Make-Up Pouch
Camera Strap Cover
Simple Scarf

I have TONS of fabric to use after my spree and about 4 months to do this. **I think I can, I think I can….**

Are you thinking about the holidays already?



  1. You read my mind! I was just thinking about the possibility of making homemade gifts for Christmas this year. Thanks for more ideas! (I can’t wait to watch Elf either :-) )

  2. oh i love autumn, can’t wait for it to roll around and for the holiday season to begin. the change in the starbucks menu will definitely single that.

  3. I made gifts for my nieces/nephews last year. I was thinking about expanding on that this year and making for more people, but I’m not sure what I want to do. For the last few years, I’ve kicked around all of my Christmas shopping on etsy. Buying for the women and kids wouldn’t be so bad, but WOW is it hard to buy homemade stuff for the guys in my life. Maybe I’ll try a little harder to find suitable gifts on there this year.
