You know, I’m really thankful that I have the talents I do. Because of the economy things are really tight for us right now and I’m not able to buy every one in my family Christmas gifts. So, I’m going to make them. I know, I know, CHRISTmas is right around the corner and there’s not much time left. I have seen some of the gifts that many of you are making and I applaud you all. I have been so inspired by you. The gifts I’ve chosen to make are simple; a set of coasters for mom and dad, a lazy susan for my wife, and napkin holders for my sisters. I’ve started both the lazy susan and the coasters and now must start thinking about the napkin holders. The designs for these projects are realtively simple, nothing nearly as ornate as what I’ve seen some of you produce. My skills just aren’t there yet. All the same, I’m going to enjoy making these gifts and even though they are simple I’m sure they’ll be useful. Thanks for reading, take care.
