Be Creative and Have a Happy Economical Holiday

It might just be me, but who wouldn't appreciate a short story or a painting for Christmas. This year, with the economy challenging us at every turn, perhaps instead of spending a bundle on Christmas, it would be good to put your creativity to work to create a meaningful Christmas gesture as good or better than any store-bought present. Here are a few suggestions.

1. Write a personalized poem for a friend or family member. You'll be surprised how much the recipient will cherish it. It's the gesture that will touch them.
2. Another great present for writers is a homemade journal where the recipient can post special writing creations.
3. Make a list of famous quotes that will be meaningful to the recipient. Put them in a jar on small pieces of paper or list them decoratively on a piece of paper. As a writer I'm always looking for quotes to inspire me. Great gift.
4. Artists, photographers and potters can make just about anything and the recipient will treasure their creations.
5. Many artists are equally talented at producing functional art as they are decorative art. Yarns for scarves and afghans are lovely gifts for northern friends. Quilts and wall hangings, pottery or greeting cards depicting your art are great for everyone.

The economy is not making it easy on anyone. Why make it tougher on yourself by running up a huge bill this Christmas? After all, in any economy the presents that are the most memorable are small, significant creations.
