Still pretty stressed around here. The worry of Josh's job loss still looms, and I am working lots of hours both at work and sewing to pad our savings account. I am also sewing some custom orders, and making Christmas gifts. I am really hopeful the gifts turn out as great as they are in my head :) I am really excited about them!! I love to make handmade gifts, I wish I didn't have so many other projects right now so I could enjoy them more. My Christmas wish is to have the basement usable in the next 2 weeks so that we can get a christmas tree, since we are not going home (and we have no room in our house currently). with lots of work, from josh, (as i work OT, sew, and make christmas gifts:) so we'll see if it happens or not...:) I am really hoping! (he never reads this)
Anyhow, I have had a small amount of time to do a few other things for my website.
They are available to buy, think GIFT ideas!
