Homemade Gifts and Cards

The day after Thanksgiving, we started decorating for Christmas.  This year, we are reusing decorations from previous years.

Also started to make Christmas gifts and cards.

Cards:  I like to draw Christmas images free-hand, but for variety, I am also trying these ideas out:  Fingerprint Christmas lights card and Copy Cat cards

Gifts:  Everyone likes this banana bread recipe, and I like to make a few batches as hostess gifts.  Moisturizing salves make good gifts as well; you can customize the scent according to your recipient’s preference.

I included a couple of links below that can help with keeping things simple this Christmas.

  1. I was recently reminded of the importance of making some homemade gifts. They are more personal, and as one person said to me over the weekend, when you make a gift for someone, they appreciate it a lot more.
