What I Got & Gave for Christmas

Hey greenies, I thought you might like to take a look at the gifts I got and gave for Christmas this past year.  Obviously I'm a few weeks late for Christmas, but my family got  stomach bug over the holidays and it thrown off my schedule a bit, but nonetheless, here's the list of some of the gifts I got and gave this year.

Also, you may notice my blog format is going to be a little shorter in the future, more like a "cliff notes" version of the video that goes with the post and that's because I kind of feel like I'm doing double work with posts and videos. Saying all that I need to say in the video and then typing it all over again in the post and editing all the pictures. It's really draining my blog/video editing time. So although I love writing, I feel like I need to cut back on something so I can create more content more often, and to me, it's my blog posts that I would like to cut back on. So hopefully you'll enjoy this shorter format while still being able to see pictures and all the information in the weekly video. Thanks for understanding.

Anyways, back to that list:

First up, here's what I GAVE others for Christmas:

SewCool Sewing Machine (for Avery)
