Christmas Challenge

When my parents were in town we had a chance to talk face to face about all sorts of things, including Christmas gifts. I'm from a big family, not Duggar big, but big enough, and in recent years the amount of stuff we exchange over the holidays has gotten a bit overwhelming.

My folks have been talking about drawing names and focusing on handmade items for a while and this year we've decided to finally give it a shot.


So here are the rules

Gifts can be any or all of the following:
-handmade by yourself
-handmade by someone else
-vintage / thrifted / second hand
-regifted


I'm really excited about this.  I'm going to try to apply the rules to all the gifts I give this year.

This is the part where I chime in and say "Bah Humbug": Bah Humbug.

Love that. This year we all donated our money to my cousin's work (a boy's home in inner city Guatemala). One year, my brother and I had a contest to see who could gift the ugliest piece of clothing. That was fun, too.
