Thrifty is my new name


Since you all know how much I like to craft, the following will come as no surprise to you....

The girls over at www.youcanmakethis.com put together a team of 50 people to be thrifty crafter this holiday season. These 50 people will put their creative hats on and come up with cute gift ideas for your Christmas gift list that are affordable. Their goal is to make hand made Christmas gifts for everyone (or as many as possible) on their list and stay under $50.00.

Out of 350 people that entered into the contest, I was chosen to be one of the thrifty under $50 crafters. I was thrilled to hear that I had been picked. Not only do I have a few gift giving ideas in mind, but now you guys get to be part of the fun!

If you are stumped on what to get someone for the holiday season, send me an email and we will see what we can come up with together. I will also be posting some gift giving ideas along with photos of things I am making along the way. I hope you all will find something inspiring to get you in the crafting mood. Everyone loves a hand made heart felt gift!

**I've also taken the handmade pledge. There is a link at the bottom of my blog for more info.**
