Day 3 - A Problem Arises

Today we drew names for Secret Santas at my office, and we are supposed to bring in 3 gifts, one each week November 28-December 14, for our secret recipient.

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM.....

How do you bring anyone a gift, let alone 3, if you can't spend any money????? What idiot came up with the bright idea to do this during the holidays?!! Oh wait, that would be me.

I really, REALLY wanted to ask for an exemption on this one, but there is a family somewhere doing this for an entire YEAR and I can't last 3 measly days?????? No, we will work around this. I can make gifts--we will find a way!

Andy says if he didn't get an exemption for epoxy, I don't get one for Christmas gifts. On December 13 I will be buying the man a CASE of epoxy for Christmas. Ho ho ho.....

Ah, christmas! When caught short I normally scrounge around and find something I'm not using. Hey, if all else fails you can give them a mug out of the cupboard! Not that I've done that....

check out craftster.org for lots of great ideas for gifts. I saw a recipe on there for coffee bath salts that sounded divine, and seemed like it used round the house type items. You can do it!

Ahem....

You know you've reached a whole new level of gardening when you receive a wholesale catalog.....
