Crazy Christmas Crafting Weekend - Only 4 More Days Left!

So how are everyone's last-minute holiday projects coming along?  We're in the home stretch now :)  Luckily, my remaining projects are more fun than stressful, even though there's only a whopping four more days to finish them all (not including the wrapping I'll have to do later in the week).

There's only one more gift left to buy, one more left to make, one more commission, then maybe some other gifts if I have the time... but those can even wait until next week.  Still, when I'm not coming home and doing a massive amount of reading for my job these days, it's nice to curl up on the couch in front of our tree, watch Christmas movies, and roll around in my yarn.

Speaking of movies, we got Disney's A Christmas Carol OnDemand last night and it's probably one of my favorite versions now (my absolutely favorite being A Muppet Christmas Carol).  If you haven't seen it, you should!  And the soundtrack is amazing, as well.

Back to crafting... here are a couple things I finished over last week and this weekend:

I'm not sure why these photos make those flowers look so huge, but I promise they don't protrude that obnoxiously and are pretty adorable, if I do say so myself!

The basic pattern for the headbands can be found on etsy from Boppy Beanies.  I had drafted my own pattern awhile back using crocheted short rows and was never 100% happy with the design, so I came across this seller who's gracious enough to allow others to sell items made from her pattern.  I made a few changes, like not changing to double-stranded yarn on the last row, and I put a border around them and chose a different flower.

I still have a ton of projects I completed yesterday, but since they are gifts for my family (and they read this thing :P), I won't be posting pictures until after Christmas.  We'll just say that the gifts I made are fantabulous and I'm so excited to give them out!

Enjoy these last few days before Christmas, and don't stress out too much :D
