Anyway, gamer plug aside, the holidays are officially upon us. I hope everyone's had a great time so far. With that comes...
Something my crazy family does every few years. And boy, is it crazy. We've done many variations. One year, the first year I believe we were crazy enough to do it - everyone crafted for everyone. Got cool, very thoughtful, original things! However, if you procrastinate like literally everyone in my family - these crafts are hard to pull off.
My mom, when she has a project that looks good at first - but then becomes overly involved - we call them 'Shrinky Dinks' - so essentially, we should be calling it Shrinky Dink Christmas.
One year, we drew names for whom we were crafting. That was a lot easier - but somehow not as fun. And two years ago we were back at crafting (I will officially hunt for the photos of some of the crafts - I "made" ... repurposed... a table for her bathroom a la 'The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland').. Really fun stuff.
Now here's the catch. Where as most has til the 25 to complete their perfect crafts - unless I wish to spend my entire first half of the holiday doing so when I fly home.. I must have mine prepared and shipped by the 15th to ensure proper delivery.
We all love a short time span.
