I often have good intentions to make more stuff at Christmas. I love to pour over the magazines with their make-a-zillion-things-in -a-jar ideas or DIY fused-glass frames an the like. Unfortunately, not only do I lack any real artistic talent, but I am awesome at leaving things until the last minute. Creativity needs time (to allow for the multitude of mega-mistakes I make) and to let the project work into something worthwhile. I am a more non-perfectionist-off-the-cuff type personality. That doesn't make most things look worthy of wrapping and sharing. I am working on that.
There are 43 days until Christmas. My goal: to make something worth sharing with someone I care about for Christmas. I want to have more than commercial things under the tree. Will it work? I hope so. Ask me on December 24th while I frantically set fire to a scupture in the garage. The tea wreath is looking better and better. Could I alter it to hold mini-bar bottles of spirits? Hmmmm.
What do you create for your holiday? Are you trying something new? Do share, I'd love to hear (and be jealous) of your creations.
