December and 2013 Crafty goals

So below were my goals for December...I didn't do so well hence my earlier post of biting off more than I could chew but I did make some progress.

1. Finish family Christmas Stockings.  Nope but I got fairly close...the good news is I still have almost a whole year left to finish them!
2. Finish and send out Christmas CardsThey have been finished...unfortunately still not sent out due to a picture insert stuck in the mail issue :(
3. Make something for Christmas exchange party?  Done!  I feel pretty good about completing this one!  I made two paper garlands and a few paper ornaments.
4. Finish Painting Grandparents Christmas gifts and send out. Nope not even close to finishing but I think my parents and in laws will understand.

5. Work on Christ at Heart's Door. Nope!  The more I look at this and try to work on it the more frustrated I get...I think I will put it away for awhile.

6. I finished 6 new stockings for the Marines in my community!  This wasn't something I had to do but I enjoyed it and am proud that I finished them :D
