It will soon be Christmas. Are you groaning at the thought? Are you well on your way in the planning and shopping stakes? Have you finished all of your gifts and can now sit back, put your feet up and relax? Or maybe you do not give gifts at all?
For me Christmas is not about the receiving of gifts but about the giving and sharing. It is not about battling crowds, fighting for car parks, spending time in queues or listening to shopping centre carols on repeat.
For me it is all about taking the time to make things that I know will be enjoyed. Things made with love. Where the recipient will know that I care about them enough to spend time making something for them. Not necessarily something with a high dollar value, but definitely something with a high love value.
So each Wednesday from now until Christmas I will be blogging about a gift idea that can be made at home and I would love it if you would join in each week with your own contribution to "A Home Made Christmas".
I am sure that there are great projects to make, goodies to make, bake and bottle and ideas that you all have to share. I look forward to reading all about the things you make and being inspired by your ideas.
Cherry Chutney which is a great addition to any Christmas meal.
So get your thinking caps on and dig out those old favourites for your Wednesday posts.
What ideas can you share to create a home made Christmas?
