christmas is coming

it's not that long now until christmas,
especially if you are planning on making gifts for friends and family

i'm thinking:

1. linen fold over clutches
2. christmas bunting
3. a dolly or two, of course
4. lemon butter
5. peppermint bark

i'm not sure what else

what are you thinking of making for the ones you love this christmas?
