my mother, sister and i have been making christmas garland! a little early, i realize, but we apparently want to get a jump on things. we plan on doing a lot of handmade things this holiday season. i'm going to go all out for thanksgiving, attempt to make a centerpiece for the table, place cards, etc. i can't wait! i never would have thought i was the crafty type, but it's come to be something i really enjoy.
