I’ve had a couple of questions as to what ‘Thrifty Christmas’ is about, so here’s what’s happened…
I was on Twitter the other night chatting to some of my fellow Mummy Bloggers and we were swapping ideas of cheap thrifty Christmas presents to make for family and friends. This year money is tight for most people and we wanted to be able to make nice, simple heartfelt gifts. After about 20 minutes we realised that it might not be a bad idea to pool all the ideas we’d had sweets, flavoured vodkas, chutneys, candles etc
As a result of this brainstorm, I’ve offered to host a ‘Thrifty Christmas’ Carnival from the 9-12th November. That should give you all a month to get ideas together and write some posts and then it’ll give other bloggers time to make the gifts. So have a think, any crafts, recipes, cards, sweets anything you make for family or friends and would like to share with other bloggers. One of my examples is these Tea Cup Candles I made last year for friends and as a teacher’s gift.
I’ll be putting up a Mr Linky on the post, so no need to send me anything just add your link when the Carnival is on.
I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! xx
