1161  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Mini 12 Days of Christmas 2015 (sign up 7-26-17 to 8-10-15; s/o 11-23-15) on: September 17, 2015 09:02:48 AM
 I plan out the next Christmas every January. I make a list of the people I will need to buy for and break them up into groups then assign them a month to buy for them in. I do the kids last since they normally have so many new things come out right before the season. This helps me a lot because I don't have the stress and headache of a bunch of money going out all at once.

 Very sweet quilt! I love that bird fabric. So cute. Looks extra snuggly!

 About five years ago I had a HUGE Christmas. Since then I have had both sets of grandparents pass away and I got divorced so the number that I buy for has plummeted. We no longer exchange gifts with my Dads side due to distance and agreed to only do the kids on my Moms side (which my Aunt has declared I have none of since the divorce Embarrassed) to save on money.
 Admittedly, this does save me a LOT of money and frees up my house from all the filler junk that accumulates after the holidays. 
 I tend to go big on my immediate family. I love gift giving and shop all year. I make a point to give my sister at least one homemade gift. When we exchanged gifts with my fave Aunt she always gave us the most amazing homemade gifts. My sister would complain after Christmas about them. My Mom and I decided we enjoyed watching her open the cheap crap and then have to put on a fake happy face so we always make her something. Cheesy Two years she learned how to knit so she could make us all scarves as revenge. We loved them. Only then did she see the joy and effort put into making something for Christmas. Now she actually appreciates, or at least she says she does. LOL!

 I have five cats and I haven't run into the no pets rule very often. Granted I don't donate a bunch but I have done it a few times in the past. Craftster has a great link to some wonderful charities that you might want to check out. Days for Girls is a wonderful one and I know you sew. You could just make sure your items are washed before sending due to the animals. Best of luck!  Grin

 Also agree. If it was for random giving than you could say your friend had a bad day/week/month and you gave them something. Then basically everything would be a giver prize. I like that it is specifically for charity.  Cool

 On the quilt... I like the idea of the logos in the corners. There are also a lot of super hero fabrics out right now. I know I saw a bunch of Batman and Wonder Woman at JoAnn's recently. If you find your husbands favorite character you could do a boarder in their fabric. Awesome find though! I am excited to see what you end up making! Cheesy

  Bunny1kenobi Luckily my 12 Days partner doesnt come around these parts soI am just posting up. LOL! Wonderful raven project. I like that the main part is black to keep it looking cleaner longer. Christmas is very good and your project is GREAT! I love that! VERY pretty skirt! I really like that. It looks very sweet and romantic.

  RockingBearRanch Cute little ornament. What is it made out of?

 I worried about loosing and misplacing things too. I put a box on my shelf and have been putting everything in there. So far that is working.
