Thrifty Christmas is Coming…

Yes I know it’s August, and no I’m not my mother just yet 🙂

But I’ve been thinking and talking to people on Twitter, and last year I think I did Thrifty Christmas a little too late in October. Some people didn’t have enough time to make all the wonderful goodies (handmade/foodie/crafty ideas) you all suggested. So this year I’ll be launching it on September 17th and I’ll have a dedicated page, with new fancy linkys with images, and badges all ready to go!

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

  2. I have not even started thinking about Christmas yet, that normally happens in the Oct holidays. Just trying to get my son organised to go to university at the moment.
    Look forward to hearing from you in Sept.

    1. LOL! I run a handmade Christmas present idea session. So basically you post something on yours and then pop a link onto mine and share it with everyone 🙂

  3. Wow – I definitely want to join in! I just said to Mr Humdrum if he wants to buy a Mac Book (insert a swear word of your choice somewhere) then he can do, but he won’t be getting a Christmas present. Seriously though we are about to move and would need to economise. Don’t you think we always give too much anyway? -HMx

  4. Oh yay!! I loved it last year! All the ideas inspired me so much I’ve been collecting jars and practising curds & chutneys ready for this year. I can’t wait to see what people will come up with. I’ve challenged myself not to buy anything for family & friends this year so I will need a lot of help!
