My New Year Plan

Every year around Christmas I think of all the things I would like to make for my friends and family. But often, I talk myself out of actually giving the gift because I am afraid that they will feel awkward when I give them a gift and they don't have anything for me. Do you ever feel like that. For example: I was planning to make a cookie tray for my one friend and didn't get it done. It was 2:30 am and I thought to myself "I need to make up one for ....." but I was tired and didn't do anymore......What happened the next morning?...she gave me a cookie tray. Bummer. I felt so bad that I didn't really enjoy receiving the gift...Don't get me wrong-I thanked her a bunch. But inside I was mad at myself...DO ya know what I mean? So I was visiting http://sewnwithgrace.blogspot.com/ and she was planning to make something for Christmas every month so that the few month before Christmas wouldn't be so stressful. Sounded great to me but I think my plan is going to be to focus on birthdays all year long. That way I won't feel awkward when they don't have anything for me..It won't be my birthday...Problem solved. So tonight I got started.

I went thru and wrote down everyone so I won't leave anyone out. Some will just get a simple birthday card.

Others will get a notepad. I am planning on using things I already have...as much as possible. I got to looking at my stampin stash and thought that might be a good place to start.

I put some of their initials on the front cover.
I am happy how the first bunch are coming along. I am not sure what else I will decide to make. It won't all be the same thing. This is just the start. Just thought I would share what I was up to tonight. What were you working on?

The egg count is....

If anyone is wondering, the egg count for our little birdies is up to 4 this afternoon. Oh my.

I am off to do something creative.....I am not sure what that will be....but I am hopeful that I just might do something with the rest of this evening other than eat. Cross your fingers for me. lol.

Have fun with whatever you are doing tonight. Lisa
