Handmade Holiday Gifts

Now is the time to get serious if you are REALLY planning on making those holiday gifts.  Here are some quick tips to get started:
1.  Make a list of who you want to make gifts for, consider that there are ONLY 38 DAYS between now and Christmas and remove those that will not fit in this timeframe.

2.  Now make a list of all the supplies you will need for all of your projects, gather the ones you already have (check them off your list) and shop for the rest.

3.  Get out your calendar and write down a realistic deadline for each project considering ALL of the other duties that have to be handled.  Keep this calendar in view between now and Christmas.

4.  Mark off each project as you finish it and adjust your calendar for the remaining projects if necessary (you might have to buy another gift and the sooner you do that the easier it will be).
