Holiday Gift Making!
So we have officially kicked off the holiday season! And although I confess I did partake in some Black Friday shopping, I am determined to find inexpensive ways to provide excellent gifts for family and friends. So on the eve of Turkey Day (more commonly known as Thanksgiving) I was surfing for deals and found a coupon code for an online printing company and thought wow, I will get some things for really cheap here. Well, I found some t-shirts that the Catching Fire fans in my life would love, but when I did the math, 3 t shirts totaled over $75 and that did not include shipping! Solution: I stopped by Wal Mart and picked up some t shirts and an inkjet fabric transfer kit. I am attempting to these myself folks. And the best part will be that I will spend less than $40 and will have 6 t shirts when I am finished. Printing the transfers was easy once I decided on a design and loaded the free template provided by Avery labels. I am not sure that I will be able to show a picture of the finished products before Christmas, since some of those folks on that list visit this site, but I will share after they have been given as gifts.
This is just the start of my month long prep for Christmas and finding less expensive ways to provide great gifts. Hoping to add even more, and possibly give some inspiration to others. Happy Holidays and let the gift making begin! :)
