I don’t want to scare anyone but Christmas is just over 100 days away.

My mind is racing with all the things I want to make.  If you want to share ideas of what you are making please send me and e-mail. So I will start the first day of our handmade gift extravaganza off with a printable gift organizer.  I hope you will find it helpful.

2008 Handmade Holiday Planner

Each year I try to think of meaningful useful gifts that I can make.  Many times it just doesn’t work out.  I always say I will start in January —well that didn’t work this year. So now I am starting in September.   Will you join me?
