A Handmade Christmas

This is the year of the seriously tightened budget in our household. Since we’re now well into October I’m in full “what are we doing about Christmas” mode.
Enter a well-timed epiphany.
How about a handmade Christmas? After all, I do make jewelry. I have some basic wire working skills. I can sometimes sew a straight line.
But can I make meaningful gifts that don’t look like a pre-K Sunday School project? We’ll see.
Heading over to Pinterest now to start my idea board. I’ll update weekly as I try to make this work.
Have you ever done a totally handmade Christmas? How did it work out? Where did you come up with ideas? Was it less costly than buying gifts?

  1. I use Pinterest all the time for DIY ideas. This year for Christmas, I’m going to make doggy wine glasses. I actually found the pic on Facebook, but now that I have the idea in my head, I’ll wander over to Pinterest to fine-tune the ideas. I’m really trying to cut back on expenses, so hopefully this Pinterest-mas helps to save money.

      Oh, I love the idea of doggy wine glasses! Definitely Pinterest rocks. I have to time myself on Pinterest though or I get lost in all the great ideas. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting.
