Do you do anything to combat the commercialism of the holidays?

In some ways, I hate this time of year. I loathe the energy, the stress of it all.

I want to focus more on a better way of celebrating these holidays. As for gifts, I like to make something because I don't want people or kids to have the expectation of something expensive, because I need to save money, and also that I think the homemade stuff is more special, genuine, and more thoughtful. Oh yeah, and did I mention I have to be cheap? Sometimes I've noticed that when I don't have money, I feel less stress about those things that require money, that aren't necessities.

christmas shopping does drain the hell outta ya.

just becuz i've been at the receiving end of your gift giving. i can personally say, the gifts you've given me, all but one were homemade. and i would never get rid of them...and i've loved each and every one of them. mainly, cuz YOU made it for ME.

just wish you could show me your crafty ways :)
