    Default 2013 Homemade Christmas Challenge

    Ok here's the challenge for this year for anyone who wants to join. I am not sure what all I am making yet but I will be doing lots of crochet projects and I am also going to make food to give away such as canning my salsa to give away. What are you planning? Please also post here as you complete these projects.

    I'll join. I started working on a cross-stitch I'd started a few years ago, that I'm planning to give to my daughter. I'd like to get it completed by her birthday (in May) but I don't think that's very realistic, so it will probably be a Christmas gift. I also really want to do a Christmas cross-stitch for daughter # 2. If I can get both of those done by Christmas I will be thrilled! I'll probably buy gifts for everyone else, but I hope that doesn't qualify me from this challenge.

    I may or may not be in.....it seems that my family doesn't seem to appreciate homemade gifts...I did it one year and they were less than thrilled...Although I am proud of my accomplishments when I do, and feel that the gifts mean more because I had to think about that person and what they could actually use or need and suit it to their tastes....I don't know. Depends on how crafty I get during the year. I plan on having a large garden this year and may do some canning of salsas and such that might work...

    I am making gratitude journals for my primary gift to others this year. Fifty two different pages, one for each week. I am really excited about creating and sharing these.

    I know what you mean. I have some family members who like handmade things and other family members act like it's doggie-doo. So I will make gifts, but only for certain people.
