It's past midnight and I have NO idea why I'm still awake... I was watching Corinne's Re:Create videos on about.com (check them out here) for a while. I really miss the old Threadbanger. Oh well, I can always go back and watch the archives :)
Anyway, I had a thought... Christmas is 30 days away... Has anyone else had this realization?!?! What the crap!!!! I still have sooo much work to do! I'm low-key freaking out... I just want to have all my projects/gifts ready this year. That's all I really want...
I'm going to have to turn myself into a one-woman crochet sweatshop for the next few weeks... I have 15 out of 20 projects done... What have I been frittering about doing?
Handmade Holidays List
 2 drop in the pond afghans (1 complete)
 3 scarves with initials (2 in progress)
 3 pairs of slippers (1 complete)
 2 hats (1 complete)
 1 hat/scarf set
 1 set of mason jar cozies (1 complete - 1 in progress)
[x] 1 set of luminaries
 1 set of bow & butterfly hair clips (in progress - need clips)
 5 undecided gifts
Ok... I feel like I've been working non-stop of crochet things and haven't done anything... ugh! I was ahead of the game when I first started this in SEPTEMBER! What the crap!!! Calm down... I can do this. I can finish these projects in time. My friends and family WILL get their gifts for Christmas and not Valentine's or St. Patrick's day...
Alright. That was quite a quiet meltdown I just had... I guess tomorrow and Tuesday I'll work on finishing the second drop in the pond afghan and the hair clips. I need to break out my calendar and seriously schedule out my crafting time and goals so that I can complete this.
Plus, if I ever really want to run a shop myself, I have to get better at starting/chugging out/finishing pieces in a timely manner. I really want to do the shop thing. But that's totally a dream right now. A star on the horizon.
Good night all. If you have any tips of getting things done, please let me know and if you have any encouragement for this crafty life, lay it on me :) Peace.
