I always try and finish my christmas shopping before December. I am pretty good at getting the bulk of it done by mid-November and pick up a few last minute things in December. I don't like malls near christmas. I think that this year I started shopping earlier than any other year. My favourite place to shop this year is on Etsy. It is a great online world where artisans can sell their work all over the world. It is like going to a craft show without the massive crowds. I have already purchased a few things and am looking almost daily for other gift options. I am also planning on making a few things this year. We pulled out the sewing machine over the weekend, I think I finally understand how to use it properly with all of it's selections. I have a nice selection of fabrics that I have been collecting over the past little while with the idea of making some things for Ollie. My big project that I would love to do soon is a new carrier. I will practice on smaller projects for now and work my way up to that one. I hope to finish my shopping and crafting a few weeks before so I can focus on decorating the house for our first christmas as a family in our new house.
