The Joys of Christmas

Well its been awhile since I have posted so I figured I would write a bit...

Christmas is fast approaching. And what better way to say "I love you" to family and friends

then giving the gift of handmade items, right? HAHA! I never in my life thought that making

things for these people would be so difficult. It is bad enough when you have so many family

members and friends to make for, but toss in a bunch of picky ones and you're sure to be

screaming BAH HUMBUG!!!

I am one of the lucky "poor" people who can barely afford to buy Christmas gifts for my own

family, let alone the rest of the country. So I figure I would make everyone something. And of

course as soon as I suggest something like this, I immediately got an attitude, because the

majority of my family, as well as my bf's, are loaded. So they can go splurge and still have a

bunch of money to spare.

The kicker? I have not started one single thing for anyone, except for a stocking for my 2 year

old daughter, which is crocheted. I haven't really knitted much in quite sometime. I have been

working a lot, and when I get home I just grab my hook and yarn and go from there.

I got my house somewhat decorated for Christmas. My tree is up and my porch and entry way

are done. This is the earliest I have ever decorated. I figure I have 2 more paychecks before

Christmas, so I will probably just get my children what they want and go tell the rest of my

family where to go. Heck I might even give detailed instructions.
