This Christmas was a little…slimmer…than Christmases in the past. Being unemployed, I had less money to spend on my family and friends. Hopefully, I made up for it in creativity and thoughtfulness.
I gave three Groupons. Cheap? Maybe. But I gave two friends surfing lessons in Charleston, which I thought would be fun, and I gave my mom a groupon for a canvas print. So, still thoughtful, hopefully.
I gave my parents “coupons” for food – while I’m in town visiting, I’m making my Mom some tomato basil soup, and my Dad some eclairs.
I also made a lot of gifts this year, and impressed myself with my ingenuity.
I made my sister this necklace:
I made this necklace for East of the West:
I bought several glass icicles and added pretty beads to them:
I made wine charms for my mom:
And little bean bags for my mom:
Merry Christmas to all, and I’m a Crafty B*tch.
