I hope your holidays were full of joy and peace.
Although it goes against the creative aspirations of this blog, my goal this year was to NOT make any gifts, thus eliminating much of the stress. And I'm happy to say it mostly worked. I had my shopping completed a full week before and had even wrapped about 3/4 of them before Xmas eve. It might not seem a lot to you all, but for me, it was quite shocking. Did it mean I went to bed before 3am Christmas eve? Not a chance. But still.
I did relax my rule a bit to make some cute fabric star ornaments.
There were more, but I sent them away. They are from this tutorial and are pretty easy. You could easily be make some from magazines/papers as well. They reminded me of those gum wrapper chains we made as kids.
And these cuties were for Aurora's class party. It's so fun to have time to decorate cookies all fancy. I always run out of time for our parties...
Anyway, now that the new year is upon us, it's time for me to try to get stuff done. Last year by this time I had already completed a new quilt top. This year, not so much. But, hey, there's plenty of time... :)
