It was supposed to blizzard today. In fact, they've been forecasting it since yesterday morning. But, alas, it has passed us by, which makes me sorta sad as I was looking forward to it. I love a good blizzard. What can I say? I'm crazy that way! In spite of the wimpy amount of snowfall, I still decided I was feeling Christmassy and jumped on the handmade Christmas tree ornament bandwagon. What I REALLY wanted to have was gingerbread guys hanging on my tree but I have found it super hard to actually find an inedible gingerbread recipe that seemed like it would work so I settled for dough guys. Maybe I can paint them dark brown? They do look kinda cute anywho.
For those of you in the "handmade Christmas" know - Ava's doll is FINALLY completely cut out and ready to be sewn together. The clothes DO look like clothes and I am feeling far more confident that Ava will actually have a 'do-doll' to open on Christmas day than I have been to date. This is officially the MOST difficult sewing project I have ever undertaken on my own. And, to be honest, sewing the body together freaks me out - what if I ruin her? Ah well, we can only do our best right? As for the rest of my handmade gifts, for the most part they are at least started and should be done with a bare minimum of work. That's the good news. The bad news is that with the number of bare minimums put together, I end up with more of a maximum.
Enjoy your 'snowy' Tuesday!
