New Gift Policy
I have been super busy getting little things ready for little people this Christmas. Pete and I made a new strategy for the kids and it has been fun and a little challenging to follow through with. It all started last Christmas morning. We got the kids a pile of gifts. Nothing super crazy expensive, just lots of little stuff that added up to be a lot of STUFF!! As soon as the shred fest was over I was left with a sick feeling that I had wasted a whole bunch of money !
And I wanted to answer a question someone left in the comments last post..what should a new sewer begin with?? I still consider myself new at sewing and knitting. With sewing I started with skirts for the girls and myself. Making something that you can wear is so fun and motivating. I dream about all the possibilities when I look through sewing books. Another tip I would throw in there is to get updated sewing books. Looking at stylish updated sewing patterns is one way for you to find endless ideas to try.
Which brings me to the next dilemma in the 3 gift policy..does hand made gifts from mama count as 1 of the 3?? Such details to be worked out....
