Holiday 2013 To-Do List

Thanksgiving is only a little over a week away and Christmas is right around the corner.  I think I better get my to-do list made and hopefully I can get all the projects I am planning done in time for the holidays. 

I hope to have a few projects done in time to distribute them around Thanksgiving or shortly after.
  • Christmas Banners with holiday greetings like "BE MERRY", "JOY", "PEACE"  and "NOEL".
  • I want to make another Advent Calendar and I think my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Board will be just the right tool for the job.  I am deciding between small envelopes filled with activities or small envelopes that can hold treats.  Maybe I will make it a combination of the two.
  • Finishing up my Christmas cards.  I bought an amazing card kit made by Anna Griffin and it has enough to make 60 homemade cards.   I think I have made 10 so far. 
This year, I am trying to think about what is most important about the holidays and I want make as many gifts as I can.  I have a few great ideas for homemade Christmas gifts. 
  • I am up-cycling some metal Tazo tea tins to hold handmade card sets.  Lucky for me, I have a good friend who has been collecting these tins so I should have enough for five sets.
  •  I am a pretty novice crocheter, but I found the cutest pattern for an infinity scarf on  Puff Scarf Instructions
  • Christmas cookies - I want to do a day of baking and I am compiling a list of my holiday favorites to make this year.  So far, lime melt-aways, macaroons, and some sort of chocolate cookie are on the list.  Time to break out my Martha Stewart Holiday Cookies magazines for inspiration.
I would love to hear what items are on your holiday to-do lists.  I will be sure to post photos of the items I am working on.
Thanks for reading!
