Almost five months to Christmas. That sounds so bad, but time is just flying by. It is not on cruise.
Get crafty even if it is not something you do on a daily basis. Look in children’s magazines, craft books and books that read easy to do!! Why! Why would you want to do that? Because you want to save money on Holiday spending this year, so becoming more #talented#creative and #crafty may be the answer for you .
Your gifts don’t have to be huge just something done by the family, or by the children or by you for someone special in your life. If you are a crafty person, use up some of the craft supplies you have left in your special room. You know the one where all your art and sewing, or crafty supplies are hiding.
Some thoughts to get you thinking :
If you are a knitter, what about mittens and scarves.
How about making a lid gripper. Get some shelf liner. Cut in approx. the size of a hot pad 6″ by 6″. Single crochet or double crochet around the edges and you have a lid gripper. They usually last 1-2 years and then the grip may not be quite as good.
Sewing, just a beginner no problem, just purchase some fabric with a holiday theme. Be sure you get enough fabric to cover your table and hem it. Do double turn so the hem looks nice, and professional.
Use scraps of colored paper from your children’s craft projects, make a kaleidoscope picture, add pictures of your children, put into a frame. Such a wonderful gift.
What about a small scrap book? Don’t buy new, use up what you have.
Be crafty and be frugal this year. Next year you will want to have a budget in place to help you pan ahead.
