More Christmas In July!

If you are a crafter, knitter, crocheter or other artsy person...have you started your holiday gift list? A few years ago, when times and money were short for many people including us, my husband and I decided we would start making all Christmas gifts. We both come from large extended families and we are both givers, so buying a gift (even a small one) made it really challenging on the bank account and our hearts.

During this transition from buying gifts to learning how to create gifts, we discovered a really cool little secret. And I am going to share it with you. The secret is: it's a lot of fun to make the gifts, in fact, it's more fun to create gifts than to buy gifts. I can't promise that all the recipients prefer homemade gifts to store-bought, but I guess that's their issue.

And now, on to this week's Christmas in July ideas!
