|Our Christmas gift list, not including baked goods|
Every Christmas, my husband (C) and I strike out to make gifts for our two families (14 people total + my best friend). We usually don't begin until the beginning of December, and upon announcing our plan to said families the following takes place...
1 C's mom declares the idea brilliant and says everyone should make gifts or spend a maximum of $20.00 per person.
2 Overwhelmed in the Christmas spirit, C's Mom goes on a research rampage in finding the perfect family gift. This always results in an attempt to purchase a heifer.
3 The heifer purchase attempt is met with an upheaval of contempt. Family members (mine included) overthrow the homemade Christmas plan and spend too much money- though the gifts are always lovely.
4 C and I run out of time and energy to finish homemade gifts and end up purchasing copious amounts of crap for everyone from big-box stores.
In attempt to avoid the aforementioned scenario, C and I are documenting our homemade Christmas project through this blog. We've compiled a list of gifts to make, tracked down tutorials, and developed a branding scheme (because we're nerds). Due to the secretive nature of Christmas presents, for the time being this blog will remain anonymous.
FYI... I know the look of our blog leaves something to be desired, C will be using his mad design skills to update this blog in the upcoming weeks. Please be patient with us.
Here we go...
