Only a handful of days left!
Every year, crafters everywhere knock themselves out trying to crank out Christmas gifts. It's the kind of thing that probably seemed like a great idea in October. But by now, things are coming down to the wire, and tensions are rising.
How many days are left? Multiply that by the number of hours you can craft in a night. Don't forget to add extra time for weekends. Oops, now you have given over your weekends to this project. It never ends!
Giving someone a handmade gift is a truly unique experience. It's so rewarding, as a crafter, to see something that you made get wrapped up as a pretty present and handed to someone. The love and time and care you put into their present makes it truly special.
The smart crafter puts together a list of people she knows will appreciate a handmade gift. Everyone else just gets store-bought stuff. (Or Amazon gift cards. You can't go wrong with Amazon gift cards.)
And hey, if you decide that no one on your list is worth putting yourself through all that? No one will fault you if you buy them all gifts! If you factor in the cost of your time, it's probably cheaper that way, too.
Soldier on, crafters! I know you can do it! Or quit now, and enjoy the next few weeks stress-free. Either way, you rock!
