Homemade for the Holidays

In these tight economic times, the Holiday Season can feel like more of stress than usual. My family and I have always created homemade gifts for for our extended family and friends. Alec ( my son ) usually has hand made gifts for his grandparents, aunts and uncles. This past year he made birdhouses and before that he decorated beer mugs.

This year we are making more gifts than ever. My wife Sheri, prepared a number of homemade treats and gifts last night, while I wrapped them in recycled grocery bags.

You too, can save money and give a truly unique gift this holiday season… It’s not too late.
