Red and green
I found this perfect red leaf this morning on the way to the mailbox and decided that if I could pick up a fully green leaf to scan with it, the resulting scan might be a fun image for my Christmas blog. And I think it is!
I've pretty much reached the conclusion that I won't try to make many handmade gifts this Christmas, but that I will plan to make them for birthdays instead for 2017, at least. Life is not slowing down and I don't really see that happening for the foreseeable future, so I'll simply try to finish up a few handmade things I've started, and go from there. I still love crafting for Christmas and I may make a few simple decor items, but it's very hard to find crafting time right now.
On Rudolph Day we were traveling back from our lakeside getaway (see my regular blog for details) and made a couple of stops. I didn't need to get out of the car for the last one, so I used the time Mr. T was gone to take a look at my Christmas notebook. I'd brought it along with me on our getaway but hadn't had a moment to peruse it. I decided I need to make some simple timelines for the several unfinished gifts. I'll also plan to make a baking list soon and figure out what I am doing for kitchen gifts and maybe choose an ornament or two to make. Keeping it simple and real this year!
