Crafty Friends, Help!

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.

I just dont even know where to begin.

I am trying to make all of my Christmas presents this year, to save money, and in my heart its a tradition I would like to carry on. I think it gives more meaning, more value, more connection.

But my list seems never-ending, of people at least. But for some reason I am having the hardest time deciding what I actually want to make for each person. I thought I had it figured out, but I dont.

And the days are counting down.

I think my problem is that I want to do everything for everyone. Its so hard to stick to one simple thing for each person.

Do you feel this way?

What are some of the projects you guys are making for friends and family this holiday?

I could definately use some inspiration.

I would say what I have already made or planning to make, but I cant give any of my presents away or it may spoil a few surprises!

On a lighter note: we went grocery shopping yesterday, and just for buying my usual pasta, which was already on my list, I got a 32 oz tube of chocolate chip cookie dough for FREE!

I dont know if you know what size the 32 oz one is, but its the BIG one!

I wanted to break out in full blown happy dance soooo bad!

I plan on eating half of it raw and baking the other half, good idea?

James tells me I cant do that!

But I want to sooo bad!
