Back in March and April, when we thought life might be back to “normal” by now and before I got hit by the furlough, I was thinking I would be very very busy at work this fall. I had my regular programs that normally run in October and November. Then I had five programs that should have run in the spring and were postponing until autumn as well. In an effort to not be crazy, I thought maybe I should ramp up my holiday projects, so I wouldn’t have them hanging over me if I was insane at work.
Luckily I had already identified my theme for 2020; this is probably a good idea because at this point I might be choosing toilet paper to represent this bummer of a year! So I ordered a few supplies that I needed and got down to work. First I did the Ukrainian eggs (two weeks), then I worked on my Solstice cards (three weeks).
Then I got furloughed and could have put everything else off but decided to forge ahead. The last big project is my calendar. I get a download from one of my favorite craft companies and then decorate each page, add pretty papers and eyelets. The pretty papers turned out to be a problem. By the time I was ready to work on the calendars, all the craft shops around here had closed their doors . I tried to find papers online but it was just impossible to search out everything I needed. I just had to wait until I could get the paper in person.
Any projects that you’re ahead of schedule on this year?
