T'was the month before Christmas, I'm all in a tizzy
I've things to do! I MUST get busy
Some gifts are made, wrapped and ready to go
But others are not....I've been moving too slow!

The jars for the bath salts came in awhile back
They really are perfect, the salts they just lack
But those I will make some evening real soon
They smell so lovely, they'll make you swoon.

The pjs are cut out, some aprons are too
The yarn that I ordered came in... WOO HOO!
Its GORGEOUS I tell you, it really should be
It cost me a fortune
I'll use it for who?

.....NOT ME!

Well, just to be honest, now, this is the truth,
I bought DOUBLE the yarn for me

....AND you-hoo.

Now, don't turn your nose up, cause you'd do it too
The things she likes, well, I like too!

It will be cozy, it will be warm
It will scream "FASHION, FUNCTION and FORM!"
The others will also like what they get
But SHE will squeal, (on that, I'll bet!)

She says things like 'sweet-ums' and 'baby'
And 'muffins of love' (I swear, she's not crazy)
The things she says, they crack me up....
And she says them all to her horses and pup!

Now, off to my craft room, I'll be sewing soon
Enough with this chit chat.

I keep fluctuating between ambitious gift-making plans and just knocking out a few things for the kids. I always seem to chicken out of giving handmade gifts...

What a wonderful poem -- speaks volumes about my own life right now. I swear, if I get everything done I want or need to, I'll be a blubbering blob in the corner. I always bite off so much more than I can chew -- or even worse, when I get done with something then it's not what I envisioned. Internet shopping and gift cards look better all the time. :)
