|Oh no! I'm Overwhelmed!!!|
This year I decided to take a step back and not make any handmade gifts for Christmas. I decided that if I really want to give Aunt Sew a bag I'll surprise her with it in January-- and not feel pressured to have to make it (and 5 others) on a deadline. It's taken so much of the pressure off!Now all that is on my list are projects that I 'want' to do-- not have to do! And because everyone's gifts are already taken care of, it leaves me free to do a little something on the side for my kiddos if I want to.
Of course, the best part is that I have plenty of time left over for hanging out with these tikes.

Anyone else ready to take a stress free handmade holiday pledge this year? Leave a comment below so we don't feel so alone. If there is a lot of interest (um, and by that I mean one other person) I'll make a button to hang on your blog saying that you took the pledge!
