You obviously don't know my mother-in-law!Originally Posted by Jewelsy
I love to make presents too, but some years I'm shorter on time than I am on money--this year particularly.
For the above mentioned M.I.L., I once did some scrapbook pages for her, so that she just had to put the pictures in, and she liked that pretty well. I've done some portraits of people's kids, always very appreciated--parents are suckers for that kind of thing, heh heh heh. And I've done the hot chocolate mix in a big mug or mason jar. My recipe for hot chocolate: 1 box of Quick, one box of dry milk, one jar of creamer, and two cups of powdered sugar. Makes enough to give to quite a few people. And it looks adorable in a mason jar, with peppermints on top. I like to decorate it with a snowman's head made from a styrofoam ball, with a felt hat and nose...etc.
Now I wish I had time to go be creative! *big sigh*
