I thought that this year, instead of just buying a bunch of stuff and mailing it off, I’d try to make Christmas presents for people. It’s already September, and I need to get started. I took myself to the craft store to see if I could figure out what in the heck I was going to make.
I came up empty.
I’ve crafted before – when I made this mixed media piece for my mom, these Christmas cards, and last year when I made earrings for the women. But I want to do something I haven’t done, and I have no idea what that could be. I thought about ornaments, because I want to work with the clear glass ones that are so easy to find this time of year, but I’m worried about shipping them.
Then there’s the confidence issue. When I made the cards, I had an idea in my head that was a lot better than they actually turned out. I was disappointed in the results, and not really sure how I could have made them better. So I’m not sure what to do.
I think this might be one of those holidays when I’m completely uninspired to shop, craft, or even decorate.
