I had been wanting to keeps a regular schedule here. I figured out why I haven't been.
We're sharing this computer, and not just as a computer, but as our tv too. So when J is home (or awake), I don't like to sit here and type away.
I'll keep at it, and post when I can.
I don't have a planned menu, and I didn't troll the internet much this week.
I Am working on Christmas presents.
Last night I made home made Lip blam. I'll post a tutorial soon!
I'm making pajamas, out of sheets!
I'm making packs of 3 greeting cards for my extended family.
Coasters. and I potted some plants.
We're not buying anything this year. I *had* vowed not to buy any materials either, but that didn't happen. I have spent (much) less than $100 though.
My Assistant Store Manager's family has a rule for Christmas presents. No cash, gift cards or anything homemade. I kinda get the cash thing. But eventually you run out of *stuff* to buy, and everyone end up with junk they don't need. MIL is like that. I get a big gift bag of stuff. 99% of it I don't need, or even want.
I totally understand the want to give. That is why I make things. I can't afford to buy. And I *would* if I had the money. I'd be going to local stores, and local craft shows, and buying things that are fun, and that I know people will like. My favorite story to tell about last years haul, was my 9 bars of soap. And the fact that that's all I remember about it...it makes me sad.
