A Few Of My Favorite Things...Postponed!!

As I mentioned, this past weekend "Big Daddy" and I went and did a few of my favorite things. Craft Fairs, craft fairs and more craft fairs. So, I wanted to show you all a few of the things I picked up...

UGGHHH!!! Never mind, I wanted to share a few pics of the things I got at the craft fairs this weekend. But for some reason, Blogger won't cooperate with me and let me upload (or is it download!?!? LOL!!) images.

Oh well, maybe this would be a good opportunity for us to share a few money saving tips. I know in these trying times, we all are being effected financially. And as the saying goes..."ever little bit helps!!" right!?!?! So, I was just wondering how you all have cut back!?!?

I was searching the internet on my lunch today at work and came acrossed this tip which I think is perfect for the upcoming Christmas season...

Make your own gifts instead of buying stuff from the store. You can make food mixes, candles, bread, cookies, soap, and all kinds of other things at home quite easily and inexpensively. These make spectacular gifts for others because they involve your homemade touch, plus quite often they’re consumable, meaning they don’t wind up filling someone’s closet with junk. Even better – include a personal handwritten note with the gift. This will make it even more special than anything you could possibly buy down at the mall, plus it saves you money.

If any of you have any homemade gift giving ideas that you would like to share...I would L♥VE to see or hear about them!!

Hugs!! Carrie♥

this is a great idea. i wish everyone felt that way. i am always afraid they will think it is some lame gift. i suppose it depends on who the gift is for.
