I'm Up For The Challenge

I've made up my mind today that I'm up for the challenge. Actually...it's my own challenge and craziness. After a lot of thought.. I've decided to make everyone on my Christmas list a gift this year. I'm not kidding! I'm pretty excited about this and I hope to really feel the spirit of gift giving this Christmas. This will not be an easy task. I estimate around 20 special people I'll be giving a gift to ranging from the ages 6 months to 83 years. I'm thinking the teenagers will be the most difficult to make something for that they will actually like but I'm up for the challenge. From my own little Santa's workshop I'll keep you posted on my progress and I hope to share with you little snippets of some of the gifts I make. After all I don't want to ruin any surprises! For sure after Christmas...I'll share with you each and every gift. I know it'll be a special journey from start to finish.
The fabric below is for an apron that I plan on sewing for myself to wear for my crafty days I've got planned. You know you have to dress for success. I've got a lot of work ahead so I better get to it. Have a lovely day! ~amy

Wow, that is an ambitious project! I wouldn't know where to being. Love the fabric for your apron, won't you just feel like one of Santa's elves tee hee! How was your daughter's concert. Hope you had a good weekend. Tried to get to the antique store this weekend, but the weather was horrendous (not that I'm complaining about the rain!) so will try later this week. Kathy

Wow! I'm impressed! I know you can do it! I make altered composition books that teenagers all seem to love, boys and girls! Heck, the adults that have seen them love them too. I'm sure you could easily make them journals. Can't wait to see what all you do! :)
