I happen to be one of those people who gets totally emotionally invested in whatever is upcoming, and when it's over, I crash hard. This year we're going on vacation for Christmas, so coming home will be even tougher, and then my "baby" is going to turn one (bittersweet) and then there's the rest of the cold crappy winter to get through. I thought it would be nice to have a "care package" or something like that to craft, and then one to open. But I don't want to have to even think about it until after the New Year, because deadlines hanging over my head are a real downer as well Smiley
What do you think?

that is a cute idea - like a mug with tea or something and some crafted coasters?

Yeah, something like that would totally make my day. Or a new purse, fuzzy sweater/hat/scarf, "welcome spring" decorations (if a bit early), cocoa, etc.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

This might be just the ticket for me.  I'm always worried about that lull right after Christmas, when there's nothing.

sounds like a good idea!
even as a child, I remember liking the day before Christmas
*much* more than the day after!

This sounds cool. It can be a Fill Mug Swap. I was in one. It was cool. It was basically you get a mug. Have the persons favorite coffee,tea or hot chocolate and craft a couple of small items to go with it.  How does that sound?
