If you're giving handmade Christmas gifts this year, get started now. For quilters, crafters and even cooks, it's time to get a jump start on the holidays. Make your gift list, order supplies and make a plan of action.
Warm weather helps paint dry faster, plus ventilation for inside projects won't be a problem. Buy a quart of paint before committing to several gallons. Paint a piece of foam board and move it around to see how it looks at different times of day.
