Family Balance Sheet

Are you a knitter, crafter or do you know how to use a sewing machine? Maybe you are a crafter/knitter/crocheter with a stash of supplies? My sister in law is a former hair stylist and has given cuts to family members. Gifts must be expensive and store bought—-SAID NO ONE, EVER! There’s outside pressure during Christmas to spend lavishly only to have the recipient not really like the gift or even use it.

Sustainable Gift Giving this Holiday Season

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

My son was delighted with the used sewing machine my mother bought for him. My sister-in-law routinely gives items that she crochets. From photography to woodworking to painting to sewing, you can use your talents to create personal and unique gifts. Now that the holiday season is underway, it’s probably a little difficult to scale back the consumerism.
