Merry SITSmas!!!



Sparklee.com - http://www.sparklee.com

A SITSmas Carol

I've decked my blog with boughs of holly...
Fa la la la la la la la la...
Would be the season to be jolly...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

Since I don't have too much money...
Fa la la la la la la la la...
I must learn to be more frugal...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

'Stead of shopping I must make stuff...
Fa la la la la la la la la...
Rather than get in lots of debt...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

Follow me in merry measure...
Fa la la la la la la la la...
While I bust out the tape measure...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

Join me in this yule tide pleasure...
Fa la la la la la la la la...
And be sure that you remember...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

The true meaning of this season...
Fa la la la la la la la la...
More than gifts and stress and shopping...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

Okay that song was lame, I'll admit it, but I am having issues with not being able to buy the gifts I want to for my family and friends... What do you SITS gals do when the cash flow is low but you want to give something thoughtful to family and friends for the holidays (besides entering SITS give aways for $200 Target gift cards)?

38 wishes granted:

I love your bling-ed out Christmas tree. Gorgeous, daaaahling! :) Thanks for linking me on your blog - how awesome is THAT? I'm also loving your Christmas tunes.

I'm sad about having to cut back this Christmas, too. What I'm planning to do is a lot of photo gifts. Things like framing a picture of the baby or getting something made like a photo mug, calendar, etc. I'm getting lots of email offers from sites like vistaprint, snapfish, etc.

I hope you figure out some things that you're happy with. Sometimes the cheaper, home made things are more of a hit than anything you can buy at the store.

Love your jingle..I think a lot of people are having to cut back this year. Maybe this is a good thing...we can all remember what this season is really about

Merry SITSmas

I understand the need to get everyone everything they want for Christmas but it truly is the thought, not the gift, that counts. I've gone through some very hard times and decided that it only ruins the holidays when I worry about the quality of gifts that I am giving.

Besides making something, sentimental gifts are wonderful. Have a family holiday picture taken at Walmart or someplace like that. They usually are very inexpensive. You can then buy frames at the dollar store and decorate them to personalize them.

Also cut out a lot of the adults. Focus on the kids. And regardless of what you give or get, it's more about celebrating the love of your family and the joy of being together during the holiday season. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

We're not doing gifts this year--we're all just going to see Cirque du Soleil in the spring and calling it even.

Annie said...

Cute blog! I visited every blog yesterday and stayed up late to get them all, only to find you added to the list this morning! Sorry I missed you yesterday. Merry SITSmas to you!

Your blog is adorable. Merry SITSmas!

Christa said...

Christmas isn't about pricey gifts, as you know, it's about sharing the love. I think homemade presents are the best anyway. It show you took the time to give part of yourself, not just your wallet.

I'm also concerned about gift giving this year but, it will all work out for the best.

Merry Christa-mas, oops, or SITSmas as it were.

we've had to cut back with christmas, too, and as our kids get older it's tougher not to buy them the things they want. but we have each other our families, friends, health and i think those are pretty great gifts. merry SITSmas to you and yours :)

You are so sweet! Thanks for the linky love, fellow Sacto girl.

When funds are low, you MAKE something by hand. It's more meaningful because it takes time and effort, and it's made with love.

Rachel Ann said...

Merry SITSmas! Have a very, happy December!

I found ya! I was told that you were out here, floating about the blogosphere somewhere.

Terra said...

I liked the song! I love making new words for old things! Cash flow and gifts? A great question...have you tried Etsy? Handmade gifts at low prices? Framed photos, small felt stockings filled with christmas goodies and tied at the top with a bow?

The Junkin' Yaya said...

Well, being a lady of over 50....I know that my grown children have this dilema and your loved ones would like the following:

- a hand-written note of how much they mean to you

- pictures!!!!

That about does it...see how easy us oldie but goodies can be pleased? xo...deb
