It’s beginning to look a lot like…Christmas?
Yes, you read that right. It’s October 18th and I am wayyyyyyyy behind on Christmas presents already.
I am one of those people who actually like to handmake gifts for my friends and family. (Though I am sure some of my friends/family would rather get a gift card than a handmade dishcloth…)
Normally around this time, I already have at least half of my projects finished. Thing is, if you know me well, you know and already realize that I work very well under pressure. I would almost prefer for it to be that way. While certain areas of my life are outlined and listed like you would find in a tried and true recipe…this aspect of my life (crafts, gifts, Holiday planning, etc…) is the EXACT opposite. Give me a deadline and I’ll meet it, no question. I might be working my @$$ off until the last second (literally…) but I’ll meet it baby!
So in light of needing to get my rear in gear…I made a trip to Hobby Lobby.
I knew it was going to be bad. I went into the store knowing that I wasn’t going to skimp on yarn and decided to pretty much ignore pricing. Ugh.
Here is what happened…
My name is Ashley and I am addicted to yarn.
So I decided I would make a fun little game out of this at least.
If you guess how much I spent in yarn on this ONE trip to Hobby Lobby, you will win a set of handmade dishcloths, or a cozy for your coffee! You must comment on this blog post (not on Facebook, not by sending me an e-mail or message) and the closest guess without going over, wins!!
Ahhhhh….A Day in The Life…
