Christmas Is Coming...

“Christmas is coming. The goose is getting fat. Please to put a penny in the old man’s hat…” I don’t know if the goose is getting fat or not, but Christmas is indeed coming. Now is the time to start working on gifts and home d├ęcor projects. Find yourself in need of ideas? Without sacrificing time with family and/or friends, allot some extra time to spend online visiting magazine websites. These are literally storehouses of information, ideas, tips, tricks, even organizational help.

Here are a few to try: Country Living, Better Homes & Gardens, Midwest Living, and Martha Stewart Living. For scrap booking and card ideas, try visiting the websites of scrap booking and/or paper crafting magazines. Scrapbooking Etc. not only has free sketches for scrapbook pages, but it also has free printables and downloads for paper piecings and other ideas, tutorials too. Hobby Farm Home, Mother Earth News, and Grit websites each feature articles, recipes, and craft ideas galore.

No doubt the websites of many other periodicals also offer downloads, articles, and free printables in a variety of interests and topics. A short time spent perusing a few websites may provide the best ideas and/or gifts you’ve ever found. There is an abundance of talented, creative, and generous people who have shared the treasure of their talents and/or ideas with the entire world online.

Utilizing the free use of computers provided by most libraries, these free online resources provide a wealth of ideas. Just a little note: Hobby Farm Homes has some really yummy looking recipes for homemade doughnuts this month. The weather is getting a chill too it, and doughnuts are so yummy with hot cider on a crisp fall night. I’m just saying…
