I took the hand made pledge...

As you can see from the logo on the side bar 'I took the hand made pledge'. The idea is to make present for the forthcoming Christmas season rather than buy them. I'm certainly going to give it a go but I can't promise it'll all be handmade.

Have look and perhaps sign up yourself.

great idea -- but since some of my shopping is already done and laid away, not for me this year.... :-)

Woohoo, I can leave comments on your blog now!
The handmade pledge sounds very interesting. I have good intentions for handmade presents now, but will probably be buying some in a frantic dash the weekend before Christmas!

Oh my, that is a serious commitment. It takes me about a year to make a gift. I suppose I could find smaller things to make. I really like the idea though. Okay, how about I try to make at least one hand made gift this year?

Great idea! I enjoy making and receiving gifts that are handmade. Although far too often, I'm rather slow in deciding on just the right thing to make...

Hello, and nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by and commenting at my blog :o)

I suppose that having promised my kids we could get gerbils this year in lieu of other presents (though we will actually acquire them before Christmas) I can't really go down this route... :)
