Tis' The Season

I just randomly finished power cleaning the house. It all started with wiping the counter down. Soon I was doing the dishes, vacuuming and organizing. It felt GOOD! I brought some venison steak (deer....yes) from the freezer downstairs and letting it defrost for tonight. I might be going to Z's house and staying the night. The plan for tomorrow is to go to Starbucks and read prior to therapy, eat something, then job hunt more. US Cellular has not gotten back to me yet, but they told me no later than Monday. I'll go and bug them tomorrow if I have to. I also need to make a list of things I want to get(make) friends/family for Christmas this year. I'M BROKE. For real. I've usually always been well supplied in the money department due to a job, or last year when I had won on a scratch ticket ($5000, lasted a little over a year, prob only worked 4 months of that year being employed) 

So this year I need to bring out my creative side, which I lack in. Could make cookies, make jewelery with my limited supply, or make scarfs...but I don't remember how to crochet. 

Do you have any good ideas for home made Holiday gifts? 


  1. If you are into scrapbooking, that can be a nice gift. Photo collages, a nice framed photo are also something many appreciate.

    I know a few years ago, I was into making soap and putting nice essential oils in them.

    I find gifts with personal touches are very meaningful. It can be something simple with a beautiful message, a handwritten card, just something special, anything like that.

  2. Thank you for the ideas, the framed photo one is a great idea=)
