I know it may only still be October but I’m already thinking of 2014.
I still have a few gifts to finish for Christmas 2013 but I already have them worked out its just a matter of getting in and making them. My brain is forward thinking and is already working out the 2014 Birthday Gift List. I want to start my 2014 gifts as soon as I finish this years gifts as my first gift is due at the start of January. I like to be a bit organised and have written down what I wish to make so I have time to look through my many books and magazines for the perfect pattern. Workshop ideas in my mind. I do craft on impulse at times but I’m also one who likes to know ahead of time what I’m going to make.
So far my 2014 birthday count is
Jan – 1 gift
Feb – 2 gifts
Mar – 4 gifts
Apr – 1 gift
May – 1 gift
Jun – 2 gifts
Jul – 1 gift
Sep – 2 gifts
Nov – 1 gift
Dec – 1 gift
Then there is Christmas which I won’t look at til about March next year (yes that early)
Each gift might contain 1 item or several depending what I make. I tend to make complex items for Birthday gifts as I have more time to work on them where as for Christmas I like some really simple gifts as I have so many to do.
