Since I became a predominately stay-at-home mom, I’ve done better than expected adjusting to just having Daddy B’s income, but I really struggle with gifts because it isn’t a gift to me if I didn’t somehow get the gift myself… financially. As a result I’ve stressed myself out the past two years making gifts. I love making gifts, but the first year I didn’t have much time because I had a young baby. This year we’re moving and my sewing machine has been put away for a couple months. So it’s December and here I am just starting Christmas gifts. AND we’re moving next week sooooo I probably shouldn’t still have all this fabric out. I bought all the material for these gifts during the summer so I sorta planned ahead at least financially by getting all the fabric during a special sale at Joanns.
Regardless, I finished enough of my gifts that I will be able to set these posts to all go up over the next few days while I’m busy moving all of my things into the new house. Yay! Enjoy!
I did try to add quotes to some of them, but it wasn’t easy to write lots with the fabric pens so I stopped, given the high likelihood of error.
