Make it a Handmade Holiday and Win $200 in PayPal Cash!

I vowed to make this a handmade holiday again this year. I plan to make all of my gifts, or support artisan shops who sell handmade goods. It’s pretty simple given how many fabulous things there are on Etsy and at local craft shows, plus as you know I love to make gifts.

It doesn’t mean, however, that this is a cost saving strategy. It can be if you buy your supplies in bulk or have sourced out some great deals. But in many cases handmade goods are more expensive than mass-produced-in-China stuff. Or mass produced anywhere really, you get the drift. Handmade can mean quality materials purchased locally and loads of time (and love) going into each piece. This makes them perfect gifts, a little craft therapy for you and bundles of thoughtfulness for your giftees.

    I will be doing a homemade Christmas out of necessity (unemployed for 6 months). I find I am looking forward to being really creative at using only items I already have on hand. $200 would go a long way to buying some nice interview clothes. I have been in the tech field so long, I only have mostly casual to very casual clothes and sandals.

    I love handmade gifts … both to give and receive. I would spend the $200 on things for the garden … more plants or more decorations or more bird feeders …

    The options are endless with a paypal bonus like this, just having it available to use would be a gift in itself. So often I find ideas that I would love to act on but are unable due to lack of funds for pleasure. I love crafting, all things outdoors, gardening, learning new skills, homemade goodness and simple things. Our farm could use some sprucing up and I would probably start with it. That way it would be a daily pleasure lifter.

    I would use it toward some beautiful displays for our air plants – for Christmas gifts for our friends and family!
