A Thrifted Christmas: Part 2

December 15, 2009

Tonight I’m racing home to dive headfirst into some thrifty and eco-friendly Christmas projects.  As stated in Part 1, this year I’m striving to create thrifty, eco-friendly, and meaningful handmade cards and gifts for as many people as possible.  

After a failed handmade coaster attempt with my girls in Richmond this past weekend, tonight’s foolproof task will be card making.  Inspired by Katie of Making This Home, I’ve already cut out holiday-esque pictures and words from old magazines and catalogs.  Now all I have to do is design and glue, which has got to be easy-peasy.  Right?

I also need to finish shrinking some wool sweaters in the laundry tonight, so that I can stitch up those fab Felted Sweater Totes in which to wrap large gifts.  It’s gonna be a busy night!

(PS:  For more great “earth-friendly” Christmas ideas, check out Katie’s e-Book, “A Green Christmas.”  Click link on right.)

    Love it! I’ll have to send you pictures of the coasters that I made as Christmas gifts one year. I think almost everyone I knew got coasters for Christmas that year. :D
