As the holidays approach, I've decided that both for my cards and for the majority of my gifts, I'm going to make my best efforts to use as much of what I already have on hand and supplement everything with a smattering of thrifted treasures. Of course, I'll save lots of money, but it's also a lot more fun for me to dream up individual gifts and yes, I do love a project!
For inspiration, I grabbed the 1970's Farm Journal Christmas Book that my sister gave me last Christmas and 1985's McCall's Cookie Collection that I found lying on the street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. When I started rummaging through my drawers in search of something to mark my favorite pages, I discovered a little sign that I might be on the right mission: the cheery, tree-shaped Post-It Notes that you can see attached to the pages above.
While I'm still in my planning stages, I can assure that these guys will make an appearance somewhere, and of course, there will be lots of glitter! Lots!
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
