I Know You Don't Want to Hear This

...but the holidays will be here before you know it.

Some of you may want to make gifts this year. The personal touch is always welcomed.
I'm going to mention a few of our fantastic craft books--we have a gazillion more:

Alexander, Karla. Stack the Deck! Crazy Quilts in 4 Easy Steps. [746.46 ALE]

Barry, Jennifer. Fun with Family Photos: Crafts.Keepsakes.Gifts. [745.593 BAR]

Baskett, Mickey. Wonderful Wire Works: An Easy Decorative Craft. [745.56 BAS]

Just Gifts: Favorite Patterns to Knit and Crochet. [746.43 LIO]

Lyons, Charlotte. Between Friends: Craft Projects to Share. [745.5 LYO]

Mauriello, Barbara. Making Memory Boxes: Box Projects to Make, Give, and Keep. [745.593 MAU]

Wilson, Janet. The Search Press Book of Traditional Papercrafts: Parchement Craft, Stencil Embossing, Paper Pricking, Quilling. [745.54 WIL]

The rationale behind starting now is:

  • You've got plenty of time.
  • You don't have the added pressures of getting the house cleaned for the holidays, making cookies for your annual cookie exchange, school winter concerts that you can't possibly miss (you can, but your kids will hold it against you forever).
  • If your crafting skills aren't quite up to par, and your end result isn't what you hoped it would be, you still have time to hit the stores and buy something!
