Why I love the holidays

No, I haven't broken yet. You will find no Christmas spirit here. I generally hate this time of year because I can't get out of the house without being put in mortal danger by rushing, oblivious shoppers. I enjoy the time I spend with my families and while giving and receiving presents is fun, the food and company are generally preferred by me. Oh, and if the spirit involves spirits, I am doubly in!

One of the best things about being in crafting communities is seeing how other crafters celebrate the holidays. I think this is going down as one of my favorite ideas. And since it involves tigers, I'll definitely be needing one of those.

Pet Lovers Swap

Just received my Craftster swap partner yesterday. Partner is a proud owner of a baby Siamese named Ari. Ari sounds like he has a lot in common with my cat, Honey, so I look forward to crafting for him. She said no wool, unless it's purpose is to be killed by said cat. I'm thinking a Homespun blanket and a few cat toys, maybe bowls if I get antsy.

Most...MOST of the presents I PLANNED on making are complete. I have a whole Rubbermaid bin dedicated to them. I plan on taking pictures this week and posting them on and my Flickr account. I should make a game out of it. Put up a slideshow and make everyone guess.
