I've been quiet lately. A cold has slowed me down and I'm waiting patiently for that creative energy to return and bring me up again. I bought presents online instead of going to the mall or making them. I may have time for a few handmade gifts but this year I'm really striving for a relaxing, no stress holiday. I didn't want to put pressure on myself by creating a list of must make presents. I spent a good chunk of the morning on the computer and all the red and green and plaids and bells has sparked my creativity. Maybe a good nights sleep, some Christmas carols and hot chocolate milk will wake me from this slumber and stir up some craftiness. I'm ready for it.
