My husband and I both come from quite large families so Christmas time can be stressful, and draining on the wallet. This year I have three DIY projects I would like to work on.
1. Homemade calendars
Give each family member a calendar. Depending on price, a photo calendar if that is too much then put one together myself. On everyones calendar I will mark all birthdays, anniversaries and important dates. Then I will include a contact page with everyones phone numbers and addresses. I hope to also be able to include labels made into stickers for the families to help mark special occasions that come up that they wish to add, example; sports game, finals, party, vacation etc..
2. Family Recipe Cookbook
I have had this project on my mind for 3 years now, this is the year I will make it happen! I have already typed 90% of the recipes I just need to lay it all out and again find a print service or make them myself…maybe price out a binding machine.
3.Update family VHS tapes to DVD
Take the family home videos and put them on DVD for everyone. Again I have attempted to start this project but for some reason when I copy the videos to my computer the audio does not copy.
