if you are doing the 60 crafted and 18 store bought items as suggested....and first send out is Dec 1st....you have 62 days to make 60 things. Look @ it that way and it won't seem so overwhelming. Smiley

To me that actually seems much more overwhelming. I had to calm myself by looking at how much I already completed.

So I didn't get much done this weekend   Embarrassed. But it was my husbands' birthday on Friday and Saturday was completly booked. I hope to get quite a bit done this week and over this weekend. Though how much will actually happen . . .

Anyway
12- 10/12 (Mix of bought and handcrafted)
11- 1/11 (Day is still kind of up in the air. The theme is for sure, but some of the items may change.)
10- 5/10 (Mix of bought and handcrafted)
9- Planned
8- Planned
7- Planned
6- Planned (Should start on soon)
5- Planned (should start on soon, though still missing a few supplies)
4- 2 just need the finishing touches, 2 not started yet
3- Planned
2- Planned
1- Started (still need a few supplies)

looking at it as making 1 item per day for the next 60 days seems more overwhelming....um, ok?!?!? guess we all have different levels of anxiety. some are a bit more high strung when it comes to deadlines.

i'm slowly plugging away but the time at the sewing machine is limited these days, but i sit till it hurts then go do something else till it doesnt and then back again. some of my days have changed though to items i can do semi lying down

Thinking of it that way makes me realize I'm crafting at a faster pace.  Ive got 43 things done and ready to be wrapped.  Which leaves 35 things left to do before the dec. 1st sendout if I send everything at that time.  And I hope to send both packages by the Dec. 1st date.  Just because after Dec. it tends to be a busy month and I will be super busy finishing the last bit of crafting for family.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

So far I have only purchased 3 items, but I might purchase a few more, but most of the package is handmade. 

Progress has been made:

12: making closer to send outs
11: planned, have supplies
10: all planned have all supplies
9: 2/9 Done still planning
8: 1/8 done, still planning
7: 10% done planned, all supplies purchased
6: DONE!
5: DONE!
4: 1/4 done, all planned, have all supplies
3: Started, all planned, may need to buy one supply item
2: planned, may need 1 more supply item
1: 50% done I ran out of one supply item that I need to purchase.

So I am at about one item a day till the end if I don't purchase anything else, which I might.

Still haven't gotten my spreadsheet back, but, I did get most of my day 5 done.  This is so much more fun that I anticipated!
