We can do it :D
I took a short vacation from creating and now it's time to get on the" Oh my god it's almost Christmas" band wagon.
Today I'm working on a tiny guinea pig candy shop. Which means I need to come up with very tiny pieces of candy to decorate the walls. And yes I will accomplish this and yes I will post it when it's done.
So far I just have 3 really Christmas items in my shop. A finger-ling snowman, A Christmas Wish fairy hanging from a gold tone stand and 2 tiny Wish fairy ornaments in Christmas sparkling red and green.
Now here's what's in my head hopefully posting next week. If your not familiar with my famous glove dogs, there dogs made from 2 cotton garden or utility gloves. I want to make an elf dog with bells on his little elf shoes, and a dog dressed in a snowman costume. Ambitious yes! but I can do it :o
Then in between my business, of course with the terrible economy, and my husband being an ex mortgage broker, still looking for a job, I'm making lots of Christmas gifts myself.
Yes! you too can be this ambitious. The secret is to take a deep breath, take lots of mini breaks, (Hot chocolate breaks are particularly relaxing ) and most of all be organized. Collect everything you need for whatever project you have in mind. Just put them in little piles and just relax and get started when you find the time. I know it sounds easy, but we have to do what we have to do.
I'll soon be working on a post with some great inexpensive Christmas gift ideas for those with a limited to just about nothing budget. Stay tuned :)
