    Hi, I am glad I found this forum. I Love Christmas and would love to join in on this challenge. I am gonna make bath salts and milk baths in jars, I am also saving to make a blue jean denim quilt for my nephews made from old blue jeans. I will also be making small scrapbooks and scrapbook calendars for the family . Hope i can stick to this challenge.

    Great ideas kimnkell - I like the idea too of checking Christmas gifts off the list on a regular basis!! We always encourage pictures of everything you do!!

    Just like Santa - making a list and checking it twice! Can't wait to finish these socks so I can make a check mark!

    We wrap with reusable cloth gift bags -- so I just drop the present in a bag, add a tag, and it's good.

    Shellie the bath salts are sooo easy. Put some epsom salts in a baggie add a few drops of coloring and a few drops of essential oil then zip up the baggie and squeeze the bath between your hands. You will see the coloring start to sink in the salts. Keep working the bag until all the salt is colored. Then it's done! I fill pretty jars that I pick up at garage sales or thrift stores, add a ribbon and voila .... done.

    Bath Salts make beautiful gifts. You can make different colors and layer them into the jars as well. I made green , white and red layered jars as gifts this past year. Too bad I didn't take pics...
