I finished another one!

I just finished this page for July! I only have 4 more to go!! I am getting so excited to see this thing when it is all done! I think it will be totally worth the wait. Me and Dusty were talking yesterday about what presents to get what people and I got to thinking, the best presents that I have given or recieved have been made. I just think that they are more personal. Like with my christmas cards. I make them to let people know just how special they are in my life. I could just buy some in the store, but they aren't that personal. I am trying to think of gifts to make for christmas for people. Now I am not the most crafty person, but I would like to try. So if any of you have any good ideas for homemade gifts for mother-in-laws, sister, brothers, friends....whoever, please let me know and I will take them into consideration. With these trying times, money isn't always so available, but I would love to make something for people that isn't that expensive and still says I love you!!

i think you should go into the calendar making business! once again, your page looks great :) i am going to have to think on the ideas and get back to you...but, you are so right about everything you said w/ the homeade gifts and all. and ya, ditto on the money being tight. the gifts from the heart are the best ones anyway!

If you're giving those family pics to like Dusty's mom and stuff, you could embellish a frame with flowers and ribbon. You can cut vinyl with your cricut or just put vinyl stickers on your frame that say something like love or family.
