This is the year of handmade gifts!

This year my family decided to make it a Christmas about giving rather than recieving. We had a family meeting earlier this year and decided not to buy any gifts for anybody over 21. Instead I am going to cover a box and everybody is goibg to put the money that they would have spent on Christmas in the box. The box will then be delivered to our local childrens home.

This means that all the Christmas gifts are going to be handmade this year! I started off eith teachers gifts for my grandchildren. They recieved stationary boxes that I made from a wonderful tutorial by Jackie Topa that I downloaded a long time ago. Can't find the address now, but I will look for it and add it later.
