I don't know if I checked in this week, but I've made some progress! 4 smalls and 1 1/2 mediums are done! I've been attempting to finish up my half finished stuff so I'll feel like I accomplished more. haha. My larges are saved for last, as I'll actually have to go buy an excess amount of supplies for them (I'm making doubles of both larges for myself ^_^).

Hmmm....I am very curious.  Smiley

I'm doing a 99.99999% crafted Christmas this year! I'm hoping that by making the same (or similar) things for large groups, I can save a lot of money. We'll see about that...

I have mixed results with crafting for Christmas. My side of the family totally love it and love getting handmade. My husband's side of the family would mostly rather have a gift card or something store bought. So for the most part, I now focus my craftiness on those who I think will appreciate it, and just minimize the gift focus for the rest.

I'm also using this swap as a sneaky self-motivator. My partner and I have a ton in common, so pretty much everything I'm making to send I'm making in double and someone in my life is getting the second one. So I'm making progress on my Christmas list while marking off items for her! Sweet!   Cheesy

Weekly check in for me.  Still nothing but a list here but I still have plenty of time.   Ideas and supplies are there just lacking time right now.

Woot! This is so much fun!
Not much crafting here this weekend as I'm prepping classes like crazy, but I've made quite a dent already, so that's alright. Smiley

So I'm making progress on my Christmas list while marking off items for her! Sweet!   Cheesy

I started crafting Christmas gifts to save money and crafted all of our families gifts but little by little I've stopped crafting for those I didn't feel appreciated what I made and now I only craft for certain special people (Spidermom included  Kiss) I don't let it get to me because I make awesome stuff,  Grin. Some people are always going to be Walmart gift people, and we should feel sorry for them te he he.

I always cut and sew more than one of something, the cutting is the pain in the butt so it's great to get a few done in one go, even if I have to stop half way through the extras, I can always whip them out the night before I need them if I'm organised that is  Wink
