Out of Time Mom

Bringing the best of the web to you.

Rudolph Day- March

When you don’t have a lot of money, putting your time into crafting a gift can be more appreciated than if you just threw the cash out for a gift. People understand the time and thought you put into a craft item, whether it’s knitting, needle point, painting, jewelry making, or whatever it is that you are able to create for your gift. I like doing counted cross stitch. I’m not very fast at it, but I like doing it, and I have a great appreciation for the craft. If you’re not familiar with cross stitch, you can get more info here at Wikipedia.

As I’m not very fast at cross stitch, I decided to get an early start on the gift for my mom. Unfortunately, I picked a craft that was much larger than I thought it was. It may be that I give it to her half done this year and finish it up next!  Look at all of that thread!

I can’t show you what the finished product will look like, because occasionally my mom reads my blog, but trust me, Christmas morning it will be proudly displayed. I may actually go door to door to show it off if I get it done by then!

Now is a good time to get your crafting ideas going. Be sure to start your gift list too, so as you shop, you know what you’ve bought already. You have started shopping already, right?.. ah, umm, anyway, at least start your crafts, that will give you time to power shop before.

Do you have any crafts started or that you’re planning to do for gifts this year?

    Wow! I was just recently thinking about how it’s almost April, so that means that Christmas is like….only a couple weeks away! (Considering how time flies). I am a huge procrastinator, so thanks for the nudge 🙂
