This year our family has decided to do an old-fashioned, handcrafted Christmas. At first it felt pretty challenging, but it also felt very necessary and actually most of our family will be creating their own personal ideas for gifting. We are also working on simplifying the season which is easier when there is not a concentration on shopping. We are all trying to give more with less. This is becoming a really fun family project. There will be more posts later on the subject.
