Take back the holidays!


For my holiday presents, I always make one present and buy one present for my family. I do it because I think it’s more special and also so that I feel a sense of ownership over the holidays, so that it doesn’t feel as commercial to me. Many people talk about all the holidays as being Hallmark holidays. It doesn’t have to be a Hallmark holiday. It can be your holiday. I encourage everyone to take back the holidays for themselves and make something for someone, even if it’s one thing. Here is an idea for you, make a book! Here is a great online guide to creating or reinforcing books. You can buy these supplies at many art or craft stores like Michael’s, Dick Blick or if you are in NYC at any point, get them from New York Central Art Supply.
