Holidays Already??

Today was awesome, I got my groove back after being sick for the past few days.  We got off the couch and away from the TV and got things done!  We painted a section of the wall in the basement with chalkboard paint, we did laundry, we got new fabric, we raked leaves and layed in them in all their wet, muddy glory.

Then I saw some Etsy sellers getting their shops ready for the holidays and it hit me--it's the middle of October!  If I want to make sure to get my holiday stuff ready before, say, the middle of December, I have to start thinking of it now!  Luckily today I was super motivated to get stuff done.  After five or so days of being sick and taking care of a snot nosed Ingrid, it felt good to get up and be productive.

So, I made lists.  I love lists.  I love checking things off lists.  I love throwing lists away because everything is done.  One thing on my list--cut out ornaments.  Check!  I cut out six sets of three different ornaments, total factory line style.  It was fun to have them lined up and see how felt and scisscors make cute things.

I sat and watched 30 Rock tonight and sewed, finishing up seven of the eighteen I have cut out.  Not bad.  Certainly better than the work I've gotten done in the past week, which would be...nothing.  And with the new fabric we got (from the Joann remnant section again, seriously the most dangerous part of the store for me!!) I have lists of what needs to be made.  The shop will be stocked, so if you have any babies or new mums to buy gifts for, check it out!!

I love those photos of Ingrid playing outside! I'm glad you're feeling better, too.

And I'm not allowed anywhere near the JoAnn remnant section...
