Oops . . . I Missed It

So . . . Sew Mama Sew's super-fun much anticipated Giveaway Day has come and gone.  I totally missed out.  I've participated in the last couple as a person giving something away, but it just blew right by me this year.

Ok . . . I became aware of it just after it started and was able to enter a few giveaways here and there (fingers still crossed), but it's way more fun to host, I think.

Anyway, I'm bummed about it.  I was just totally unprepared.  In fact, I'm pretty unprepared for Christmas Day and some (albeit small scale) gift-giving . . . which is creeping up on me ever so stealthily.  It'd be one thing if I just had this notion in my mind that I would make my kids something for Christmas (one thing each . . . let's not get crazy with the Cheese Whiz).  The problem is that I may have possibly mentioned that little notion to Little Miss . . . who is like an elephant.

She never forgets.

So I've got to come up with something quick.  And yes.  It's stressing me out a wee bit.

Oh, sewing inspiration . . . where art thou?  Probably hanging out with *energy*.

I've also got a huge mess of Christmas handmade gifties to do. Each year I think of what I want to make. I start making them. I change my mind. I add projects. I start making them. Then, I get a brainstorm and add more projects. I start making them. Then I realize that we're opening presents in 1 hour and I rush to the sewing machine and frantically finish all of the crap I started and throw them in a gift bag and sit down just in time for the Christmas story to start......

Next year I'll do better. (But every year I say that...!)

Good luck with your sewing!
