so there I was innocently making turkey stock and there it was.
so there I was innocently making turkey noodle soup and there it was.
so there I was innocently stuffing my face with leftover pumpkin spice cookies and there it was.
so there I was innocently lounging away my friday on the couch watching 'diners drive-ins and dives' while drinking tea and cringing at Guy Fieri's awful catchphrases and there it was.
the holiday season is here, people. and for some reason, it seems way earlier than last year.
I have officially bitten off all my nails.
I spent all of Saturday with my best friend shopping for things to make gifts with (meaning we went to the fabric store, antique store and to savers). I did buy a chunk of things yesterday at jo-ann fabrics too. yet I feel so behind! I am in a panic! no decorations up, no completed gifts, some kind of event every weekend until christmas, yikes! why can't I get a couple days of relaxation post thanksgiving before christmas shows up and ruins my laziness er relaxing?
in the spirit of the season, here is one of the gifts I made last year for your DIY pleasure:
to give as a gift: go to salvation army. buy tons of fun knitted sweaters. wash. cut off sleeves. sew one end of sleeve. insert bottle of spiced wine. thread ribbon through sweater or tie one on. hand to recipient. hope they haven't given up drinking.
