Woe is Me!

It's Christmas...already? Well, not yet, but nearly! Wasn't it JUST, the other day? Ugh!
Ok...don't get me wrong! I like Christmas as much as the next (sane) person but there's so much pressure to find the right gift for everyone. And yes I am aware that I am indeed solely putting all that pressure upon myself. No one is expecting greatness or some huge extravagant thing under the tree. However, if I am buying presents I want it to be something useful, wanted, needed, etc. by that person. There's nothing worse than the look of dread on another person's face when they've opened your gift. The look that says to you 'What was she thinking? SMILE and say thank you, like you mean it, I can always pawn it off on someone else later.'

What?? Haven't you done that?? No, me neither! Never! Honest...

Oh...or when someone else already gave them the same gift, which they've already opened before yours. I mean...yes, two baskets of bath products are great and it will probably last them until next Christmas, but is that really what we want? Uniqueness and originality is what we are all striving for. Aren't we? I want you to LOVE my present!! When someone asks 'Was Santa good to you?", one of the first things you think of is the present I gave you cause you love it so much!! :D

Alas, there are less than two months left before that big day arrives. I have started my shopping, I bought two presents so far. But it seems I have the equivalent to writers' block, but for shoppers...shoppers' block? Erm, no. Anyways, whatever it is, I have it. And I know in my heart that what I should be doing is making my presents, since I claim I'm all crafty and shit (pardon my, erm... well, it's not french). Thing is, between you and I, I'm a closet crafter. I have all the supplies in the world and I only craft by myself, for myself. I'm really not confident enough to get out there and show my stuff to the world, craft speak, not my STUFF stuff. :P

But a friend just asked me to make her some Christmas cards....oh my! And as I hate to disappoint, I said yes. I went out and bought what I needed. Now I just have to get started. I've wanted to start an Etsy store for such a long time but can't get the confidence or motivation to do it. Blah!

Anywho, that's my dilemmas lately! Closet craftiness and Christmas woes. lol

 'Just me being silly' :)

So, how do YOU choose the perfect gift?
