Well. It's over. All done. Finite. Sigh... I always have mixed feelings at the end of gift it. For one, I LOVE giving THE perfect gift, which means I LOVE hand-making gifts. Which means I can use all the ideas I can get.
On the other hand, it's been a whole month. And there're other things to show you.
On the other hand, it's really nice to know what I'll be posting about ahead of time and not scrambling around like... well, like normal.
That's three hands. I guess I'll stop there.
