Have you reached this point in your holiday schedule?
Feel like just sitting down and crying?  For such a joyful
season, it comes with a lot of stress and drama, doesn't it?
 
At this late stage of the game, it's a little ridiculous to say, "Just simplify."
 
 
But heartfelt crafts or kitchen baked items are
some of the best gifts to give and receive. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
LOVE this idea - bake brownies in cookie
cutters and give them as part of your gift. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You don't have to be an accomplished artist
to create darling hand-painted mason jars.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
What precious luminaries!
 
  
 
 
Need a little inspiration for
repurposing your wine bottle corks?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Have a special occasion you want to remember?  Hang the cork from
that bottle of vino or champagne with the date and location on it. 
 
 
 
Take a deep breath and exhale slowly.  And remember, it's
about the joy of togetherness, not the amount your gifts cost.
