Recently I was getting a little worried I wouldn't be able to achieve my $100 Christmas plans. I wrote down who I needed to buy for, what I had on hand, what I wanted to make and where I needed to spend money.
I had wrapping paper, tape, cards, a few gifts and lots of craft items to make presents but felt I needed to spend something or maybe my gifts wouldn't be appreciated.
To give you an idea I have about 16 nieces and nephews, parents on both sides of the family, my husband, kids and a few other little gifts to give.
I have already made baubles for my nieces, nephews and my daughters which you can check out by clicking here.
I have my Oma's present, a puzzle from my present box.
I have my little brothers present. I got a hair product free with clippers we bought earlier in the year, which happens to be the one he uses and worth $20.
My little sister is now done with some things she will like. I can't say, as she occasionally reads this!
I am in love with pinterest. I have found so many great ideas from it and the images link to tutorials so it is easy to make them. I have created so many boards, but the main ones I am using for inspiration are For My Daughters and Gift Ideas and Getting Crafty
I have so many ideas, it is hard choosing what to do.
I am thinking pillow case dresses, head bands, hair clips and ties for my daughters. Some headbands and things for my nieces, felt Santa's for my nephews. I realise there is only 2 months to Christmas so I need to get cracking!
Oh, another thing for my daughters is a signed photo from their favourite Disney character. We wrote letters the there day and I found some stamps I had from when one of my friends lived in the USA and we wrote (yes, snail mail!) so I am using them to post the letters. Did you know if you write a letter to your favourite Disney Character they will send a signed photo back? Write to Walt Disney World
