We did a little survey in my facebook group about what you would all love to have for Christmas if money was no object, and we will compile those into a blog post so that you can accidentally on purpose forward it to your loved ones ready for them to buy you a great gift.

But the number one thing that everyone wants is time off to sew/knit/craft.

Just some time where we can be selfish and shut off and forget that people need feeding and laundry needs doing and the gas man is coming and Flo next door needs her lawn mowing. Time off for ourselves, for our sanity, and for the sake of our creative skills.

So we thought we'd help. We can't come over and babysit or bring you meals, or do your laundry. But we have created some vouchers for you to print off and present to your family members when you just simply need a break to sew.

My first birthday after I had my daughter, my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday. Aside from being able to use the bathroom without an audience, the one thing I wanted was time off to sew. He printed and laminated some little vouchers that I could use for a whole day's sewing while he took time off work to be a dad/cleaner/chef. Funny enough, I used those vouchers then they never reappeared.... I'll ask him about them later!

These vouchers can work in two ways, you can present your family with them when you want to craft, or you can give them the sheet and tell them to give you a voucher whenever they're able.
