After the Fact

There are a few things I want to do for next Christmas that I didn't get a chance to do this year.

Firstly, I want to make a yarn garland. There's a specific garland I'm going to emmulate, and it's the one that Kmart sells under their Martha Stewart Sugarplum line for Christmas. I've wanted it for the past three years, only realizing this year that I could do it by myself for much cheaper and with a bigger sense of gratification. I want to do it next year. I've already got some of the poms made - this year they were strictly for decoration.

I want to make a garland or an ornament with the cards we recieved this year to hang next year. Maybe I'll make a garland for next year and an ornament after next Christmas? Something. They were all so pretty and it felt so nice to get them, I think it would be nice to have a momento of some sort. Maybe start a tradition.

I want to do a gingerbread house. That's pretty self-explanitory.

I want to go carolling with a group that does it up north. I know the guy who runs it, so I'll get on the list for next year.

I also want to keep making Christmas ornaments for people every year, because this year it was really fun and I already came across some ideas for next.

I want to make things with salt dough and some things with paper-mache. There are so many cute things out there (ornaments, etc) that can be done with these. The sky is literally the limit.

I want to make more crochet snowflake ornaments. I've got one that I made this year, but maybe I could make one per year or something? Something.

Don't worry, I've already got something lined up with my cousin Michelle for Valentine's Day, too. ;)
