Only 3 months until Christmas!! What to do? Because I plan in advance (because I know I procrastinate) for the holidays, it is time to get on it right now.
I belong to a small group where we exchange handmade presents in December. I think I have a good idea for this year, thanks to some great DIY crafts I have found on the internet. I can’t mention it here because at least one recipient reads my blog. But I am excited about it and have scheduled next weekend to gather supplies and start the process. (such a tease –sorry)
Will probably be having Japanese guests this Xmas again, so should start thinking about that. Last year I made sure I had several little presents from Santa for your guest. Better start shopping early.
I have a large extended family and need to plot and plan gifts for all. I want to come up with something that is useful. Last year I did a type of food gift basket which included breakfast, soup, and dessert. I had so much fun putting it together; thinking everyone liked it.
I am running out of ideas. One year I dehydrated several different fruits, and also made jams and fruit leather snacks. Another year I made mosaic trivets for family. Here are some pictures.
Since I try to have everything done by Thanksgiving, I now only have 2 months. Help Help Help! If anyone has some spectacular ideas for gifts, please let me know ASAP!
