11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Ideas for "Assembly Line" Gifts?? on: August 22, 2007 08:10:53 AM
Last year my friend and I had the same idea... We're grad students and we wanted something fairly easy, cheap, personal and yet still appropriate for family, bosses, and coworkers. We made gifts in a jar. Soups, cookies, and hot coco. You can get glass jars at the $ store even if you look hard enough. I recommend doing one or two soups though. We did 3 soups, 1 cookie and 1 drink and even though it was a good assembly line process, it was kinda confusing. I'm going to repeat it this year and just do 2 soups. We added everything up and it turns out to be much less than $10 a jar. Don't buy the books, if you don't want to. You can find all the soup recipes on AllRecipes.com.

I'm glad I'm not the only one already planning christmas! My friends here think I'm nuts. I try to do as much homemade as possible. Here's what I got planned so far:

Mom: painted photo frame with shells, a wooden box in the shape of a book titling it "There and back again, a daughter's tale" and decoupage-ing memory stuff on the inside

Dad: an advent calender inspired by burstandbloom https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=132553.0 with all gifts being shrinky dink ornaments to go onto a small tree.

Not much, but I've already spent a ton at Michael's! Sheesh.

Oh! This is my first post too! Woo!
