One of the things I usually do is shop the after-Christmas sales. Last December I stopped by Hobby Lobby to pick up some wrapping paper for this Christmas, when I spotted this kit on clearance as well.
I kind of walked by it a few times, debating whether or not I should buy it. (It was either half off or more I can’t remember now.) For one thing, I wasn’t sure if I would finish it in time for Christmas! For another, my husband is usually the one who does the lights and decor for Christmas…I usually just hang the ornaments on the trees!
In the end, I decided to go ahead and buy it. I enjoy crafting and I love having handwork to do on the evenings we watch television. (I can’t sit still and only watch something. I feel like I’m wasting time.)
It’s coming along together a lot faster than I anticipated, so maybe it will actually be done and I can hang it up in the house come Christmas!
