Have a Very Homemade Christmas

Yes, it is that time of year again! No matter what religion you are, or what celebration you take part in the holidays can be a stressful time. Especially when you are broke (as most of us are). We are cutting how much we normally spend this year. 1. I don't it to spend. 2. It's not necessary.

Do me a favor... look back on the holidays or Christmases past and tell me what you remember. You may remember a toy or two that you REALLY wanted, but over years and years of gifts most people remember that they saw their family every year. That there was always lots of food and goodies. Children remember the memories you make, not what they get because that is not what the season is about.

We are making all of our ornaments this year. Between Google and Pinterest I have found LOADS of cheap and easy tutorials. So not only are we decorating the tree, but we are going to spend time together making the decorations. I will be posting these with links as we go along, hopefully.

I am lucky that so people love my daughter and are able and generous enough to buy for her. She is going to get loads of presents. So I am not getting her as many as usual, and many of the presents she is getting from me are going to be homemade. This does not make them any less special, if anything it makes them more special.

Spend less, make new memories! The holidays don't have to be stressful!
