Someday soon I’m going to be able to start a blog post without referencing how the move and my new job have led to x, y or z. Today is not that day.
A move across the country is no cheap affair. Add those expenses to all the complications that arise with transplanting oneself (Who thinks to pack their plunger?!) and trying to add a little creature comfort to a new place (My ratty old comforter with a big hole in it might need to be replaced, yeah?), and loading people up with pricey gifts becomes near impossible.
So, this year, I went the grade school route and constructed my family some homemade gifts. The theme? Food and spills. The medium: PITT pens and 5×7 cotton vellum note cards. The result? Doodled gifts!
Real gifts next year, guys. Promise.
