We all know the signs that accompany the changing of seasons; darkness encroaching upon the light earlier and earlier each day, coats and mittens being needed for excursions when only weeks before they would have deemed unthinkable and, most telling of all, the acute awareness of holiday traditions poised and waiting for us just around the corner.
For some, the ushering in of winter and all its splendor is a welcome rite of passage, marking the closing of yet another year and signaling a time to give thanks and reflect. For others, however, the holidays can signify something admittedly less cheerful- shopping excursions to densely packed retailers, gift lists that rival our to-do lists in scope and length and schedules that rapidly become more robust than any Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham. So, for those of you who approach the holiday season with as much trepidation as you do excitement, rest assured that you are not alone.
We at AccuCut know that this season, despite its inherent beauty and gaiety, can bring with it its fair share of stressors and demands. So to ease the load this year, we’ve created a Holiday Idea Book; however, you can think of it as your holly, jolly survival guide. Within it you’ll find ideas for crafts to dazzle and impress your loved ones. With projects ranging from albums and ornaments to table settings and cards, you’ll be inspired to put that personal touch back into your holiday gifts. Your friends and family will be impressed by your crafty prowess and you just might be able to bypass the malls altogether.
So kick up your heels, grab some hot cocoa, start perusing our Holiday Idea Book and enjoy. After all, it really is the most wonderful time of the year, or at least, with our help, it can be.
