It's time to start thinking about Christmas.
I know. I know. But it's already October.
If you're making gifts, it's time to get busy. And it's still early enough that you can buy one gift a pay and not toss this Christmas on the credit card. We've paid cash for our Christmas for the past nine years. It's a great feeling. Trust me!
Here's some of the DIY gifts I'm planning on this year:
For the boys and my little nieces and nephews:
|Super Hero capes|
|Hot Cocoa Mix|
|Ruffle scarf - in blue & gold for school colors.|
|I have some great fabric in brown & green for this, plus a matching warming rice bag.|
I have to say, I'm most excited about my mother in laws present, but since she's the only one who actually reads my blog, it will have to remain a secret. I'll take a picture of it for you to show after Christmas - if it turns out right.
I also have my homemade vanilla that has turned out great! Ronnie & I are also thinking about making some pints of apple pie moonshine with the alcohol we have left over from the vanilla for gifts this year. There is nothing better with some honey as a hot toddy when you're feeling bad.
There's still plenty of time to get started on any crafts you want to make for Christmas! It's a great way to bulk up your gift for very little money. Most of these projects will be done in the evenings while we're watching TV or just hanging out. If I feel really productive, I could knock out most of these in one afternoon.
If you want to make any of these projects, you can find the original links by checking out my Pinterest boards here and here.
So, are you making anything this year?
