As always, these will be added to the big list.  I add them at the bottom of the relevant categories, if you’re looking for a simple way to scan for updates.

I won’t be adding them immediately, though, since it’s mid-afternoon and I have the house to myself for a few hours.  That happens approximately…well, it happened today.  So I’m going to get busy with my own gifts.  I finished two yesterday and two the day before that, which is good, because I am working on everything in bits and pieces depending on who is around and I was starting to feel like I was working like crazy but never crossing anything off my list.  Whew. To Do list got smaller and I felt better.

    I’m feeling the same way about being very busy with Christmas crafts and not being able to claim a victory of completion for any of them… yet. I WILL finish. (I have to keep chanting that to myself.)

    By the way, I have nominated Handmade Homeschool in the Best Hobby Blog category at Blogger’s Choice Awards. Everyone please pop over and give Poppins our vote!
