Christmas with my family (well grandma, parents and my partner) is tomorrow, and then we have Christmas with my partner's family the next day,...

I am still wrapping presents, sealing a wood-burned and painted peice,
Considering starting a new wood-burned piece i meant to have done,
Going to try to save one painted project i started that hasn't gone so well...

Yep, and the only thing keeping me going is caffeine (both pills and coffee) yet now I'm starting to nod off... oh dear.

Also want to re-try making my dad Carmel corn (i messed up last nights batch... *Do not put extra baking soda in**... not even if it looks like correct measurement went in as a clump and won't mix in.. adding extra messes up the texture big time.

And i want to make a healing salve or at least mix for my mom using my comfrey oil.

I wonder how much of this i will manage to finish as i am not feeling so hot while trying to work away at all this.

DIY Gifts

I have been working away like mad this week on a couple DIY gifts for people. I should have started then ages ago but with outside looking an feeling like early fall rather that winter like it should be here  in ontario I never felt in the Christmas sprite so gifts didn't come to mind till I looked at the calendar horrified that Christmas was less than a week away. Because of all this I have photos to share of my work, only teasers this moment as I am still overwhelmed by what I still need to do (an not all in photos is even done.
