One challenge I do plan to do this year is the Christmas Challenge by The Bluebirds are Nesting. Annabel is an inspiration to me in so many ways. I am so thankful I found her blog. I found her because I was up one night late searching for Laine's Letters (check side bar for a link) for a recipe and I came across her blog. I am ever grateful.
Anyway to learn about the challenge check it our here.
Now, I will follow along to an extent. I will not be making something weekly. This is not in my season of life at the moment with homeschooling. I will try but I have set a Monthly goal instead. to start she has encouraged us to put together a workbook of ideas and inspiration, a list of those we need to have gifts for, and etc.
I am so thankful for this challenge. I spent too much in past years because of not being prepared. Also, because I am limited with certain crafting skills (although willing to try) I may do gift baskets, reused or repurposed items and make them personable and such. Here are links to my projects I plan to do. I would share images but I am not comfortable sharing others images. *Smiles*
I plan to make these Soy Candles from here.
I also plan to make these birdfeeder for my mom and grandmother who are avid birdfeeders and watchers. Check them out here.
Another thing I am so excited to add to this is DIY Painted Dipped Bamboo Utensils. You really have to check these out they are so neat. These would make a great wedding gift or Christmas gift. Check them out here.
One more of my gifts I am so excited to put on my list is Homemade Body Powder and Handmade Powder Puff. I am so excited about this. When I was a little girl my favorite memory when visiting my grandmother is her powder box. I loved taking bath and using the fluffy puff.
I was telling my daughter about this and she was wanting to have some. So, I plan to make these puffs. This is a wonderful step by step youtube video on making the puff's. Check it here.
Are you prepping for future gifts this year?
