Quick Christmas Craft

I don't like giving money at holidays and birthday - I think it's really impersonal. I spend a lot of time thinking about gifts to make or give people I care about - but money is really just boring.

What do you give the kid that LOVES money? Well, money of course. My challenge this year was how to package up money for my nephew - and I thought about it for at least a month.

This is what I came up with.

At first he wasn't sure how to get the money out -- or how I got the money in there! I think he's figured it out by now! You could do the same thing with a gift card - or tiny gift that would fit in the slot in the center. He loved the idea, and he can put a couple of favorite pictures in there now that the money is gone.

Hope you had a great Christmas!! I told my husband that next year we are going to volunteer at a soup kitchen on Christmas eve or day - so we can give back to the community to those less fortunate - and for our son to realize what a great life he has. So we can all realize how blessed we are.

Anyway, moving right along....now that the hubbub of Christmas is over - the tree and all decorations down -- it's time to think about the New Year. Resolutions. Plans. Wishes. All that we want to accomplish in the year....oh, my head hurts!

Well, thanks for stopping by - HAPPY NEW year!
