Meaningful Holidays

Many of you are already doing the Handmade Holidays Pledge. Good for you! Here are some links that may be helpful to those of you who want to do some hand-making, rather than or in addition to buying handmade.

Craftster challenges you to make 50% of your gifts yourself. (Lots of ideas in there)
Sew, Mama, Sew’s Handmade Holidays Month.
One Hour Craft has super quick and easy ideas

And of course you should support your crafty friends when you can.

Consider giving to charity in the names of your loved ones. You can find an alternative gift fair in your area, or go straight to a charity that's set up for gift giving, such as Heifer.

Finally, I want to see more of you folks posting the holiday wish list meme! I really love it when some need or wish of a friend's happens to match up nicely with an item, service, or resource I can provide. It's selfish of me, I know, but I demand that you people make with the wish lists! I promise I'll get around to posting one of my own soon, so as not to be hypocritical.


ETA:Oh, ferchrissake! No, there is no adult content in this post. Sorry, folks. I accidentally made a change to this journal that should have been made to my fic journal. This whole "adult concepts" thing is ridiculous.

Um, why are there "adult content" warnings all over the place with this post? It looks pretty innocuous to me. I haven't followed all the links, but considering you're talking about crafting and holiday gifts, I'm surprised at the content warnings.

That being said, onto the topic at hand: I am making many of my Christmas gifts this year, and I couldn't be happier about it! :)

That's what I was wondering? What about that was adult content?

what holiday wish list meme? I only buy gifts for my girlfriend and children; the adults on my holiday list get homemade baked goods.

It's been going around for a couple of years, and this will be the 3rd year I've done it. It does not obligate you to get things for people, but only gives others an opportunity to gift you with things (either material or not) that you would like to have in your life. I'll probably post this year's on Monday, but here is the link to last year's if you'd like to see.

You should post one! I want my friends to post lists, so I can try to play Santa if I can *points at bunny claus icon*
