Working Within The Budget


With the Christmas season so quickly approaching, I am putting much thought into gifts that won't break the bank. For friends and neighbors I usually whip up some homemade cookies and such, to be delivered in decorative tins. I enjoy the baking and don't mind putting the time in. The catch is that the ingredients wind up getting mighty pricey. So I have been searching for something a little more pocket friendly that will still spread the Christmas cheer that I feel in in my heart. It has to be something made with my own hands, to show how much individual caring went into each gift.

After thinking and searching, and searching and thinking, a friend sent me an e-mail with the perfect idea. This gift fits all the criteria. Thoughtful, inexpensive and handmade. So without further ado, this my friends is what you will be recieving from me this year.



Update on the Ad Clicking Campaign: Grand Total is up to $127.45! Thanks for the clicks.

Hey, I'm Jewish. Do you think you can make those with a Hanukkah theme? That'd be awesome. :)

RhondaLue said...

Sweet...can mine be extra thick? lol

Momisodes said...

ROFL!!!

We're on an extra tight budget this year.

Perhaps pantyliners will suffice.

Michelle said...

Ummm, please tell me those weren't what I thought they were. Please.

Tom said...

I'd need them in extra-wide.

Mike said...

They'd be a hit at my house with four women here...

Weaselmomma said...

@ Melisa ~ I think I can put something together for ya!

@ Rhonda ~ I plan to use the Super so that they can help you clean up spills w/o bending over.

@ Momisodes ~ For comfort I would go with full size.

@ Michelle ~ Oh yes they are.

Yikes, I seriously hope I'm not included on your Christmas gift exchange list...lol!

Figure out how to make them with tampons and I'm so in...;)

Weaselmomma said...

@ Chris ~ Neither do I(went through the same ordeal), but they make for great and absorbent slippers, lol.

@Melissa ~ Wow, first I have to make special ones for the Jews and now special ones for Tampax girls too, lol.

@ Tara ~ I hope yours are cozy.

Weaselmomma said...

Re: your last comment

EEEEW!

Weaselmomma said...

@ Paula ~ Welcome and link away!

@ NukeDad ~ For you, absolutely!

@ Melisa ~ Try not to think about it too long.

Big Bad Daddy said...

Aren't those things expensive?

Weaselmomma said...

@ Big Bad ~ I am totally going with generics!

Nap Warden said...

Oh, I already have a pair;)

Cheffie-Mom said...

Very creative!! LOL! I'm going to borrow this idea (:

Bad Momma said...

You could make matching earrings with tampons!

I have a box or 2 I can contribute!
I also am willing to donate a box of thin pads. (perhaps travel slippers?)

Very crafty!

Weaselmomma said...

@ Bad Momma ~ You're hilarious! That's awesome funny stuff.

terri said...

Can you make me a pair with wings?

Laura said...

I was just thinking (after I got up off the floor!) that maybe some with wings would be even warmer & cozier!!

OhCaptain said...

Um. I... Um...

I got nothin'

Rick said...

Ummm... take me off your list. This is one of those cases where it's the thought that really does count.

Mrs4444 said...

LOVE those! I think I will make some of these for my MIL; she will totally fall for it! One thing I have done this year (so far) is to make a header for my sister's blog, and if I do say so myself; it's fantastic! :) Four hours, though...yikes.

The Microblogologist said...

Hmmm, I think me, NukeDad and Bad Momma, and BusyDad are at the most risk given we are all Flat WeaselMomma participants and so she has our addresses...

Ashley said...

lol, I've seen these before but not decorated for Christmas. Can you die them blue? Or green? Or...gold...with sparkles? :D
