Kicking My Feet Up
December is here and crafting for the holidays appears to be in full swing, which leads me to what I'm making for the holidays this year - absolutely nothing.
No quilts. No clothes. No food. No cards.
Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
And it's all because, really, I just don't feel like it.
I despise making anything under a deadline and my belief is that if starting something now is going to make me into a stressed out, crazy woman down the line, then I say "forget it." Everything I make I want made with as much love and joy and patience as possible and staying up until three in the morning the night before to get something done just does not bring out those qualities in me. It's far more likely that my projects would be filled with annoyance and loathing and that's really not what I want to give people for the holidays.
And so this year I'm kicking my feet up and buying things made by other people for the loved ones in my life. And you know what? I am completely at peace with my decision.
