A question has been asked about homemade gifts. I read the question about homemade gifts on the list to be about cookies and candies, stuff like that.  But do you think it also applies to things like ceramics, or woodworkings?  Tapestries, pottery, crafty creative things?  If you said NO on the homemade gifts question, would you still be open to things like that?  Just reaching out for opinions.  FWIW, my opinion is I would LOVE to get something handmade.

I also took the question to mean baked goodies.  I'm sure things non-edible would be fine.  IMHO

I would. I took it to mean food type items as well. Something handmade is extra special in my book.

I received by SS box today, and, I couldn't be happier!  It was absolutely filled with wonderful gifts (all of which I already opened).  I am a compulsive list maker and there were no less than three different calendars, boards and note pads that I can use for this, plus pumpkin latte mix, hot chocolate, socks, a soft throw, and, more!  Thank you very much to my SS, and, I wish you and your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

Sounds like the fun has begun..... I need to get mine finished but think there is something I have to wait to get on BF from a specialty shop. So hopefully by next weekend I can be finished.

My spreadsheet is filling in with tracking numbers. That's great!  

 

On the other hand, every time I get a new tracking number it reminds me how behind I am in my own SS shopping.  :sidesplit

Got started on my SS shopping last night... Or rather - finally actually moved beyond list phase into purchase phase. lol :)


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

I bought my ornaments today. I'll get them boxed up and hopefully in the mail Monday.  I try to get the ornaments out before Thanksgiving, but all of a sudden Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! LOL

If you've posted that you've received your gift, I have linked your post to your name in the original post. I did not know I could do this last year, LOL.   SO, if someone's name is underlined in the original post, you can click on their name and go to the post showing they've received.

 

Please be sure to let us know when you receive your package, even if you are going to wait to open it.
