Graduations, Weddings and Baby Showers.

If you are like us, every weekend in the month of June is consumed with Weddings, graduations, or baby showers. We have at least one thing every weekend! It can be a little overwhelming. The gift giving can get to be rather expensive too. I do have a suggestion...

Shop Etsy. I have a cousin that was in a hunting accident a couple years ago. He was shot in the pelvis while hauling out his deer. It's a long story. Anyway, He now occupies himself with woodworking and does some really unique and beautiful pieces at very reasonable prices. He makes the old fashioned flasks, like the civil war soldiers used, out of a singlepiece of hardwood and lines them with beeswax. He makes 3-D puzzles, and very unique jewelry boxes out of different woods. They have multiple drawers and are really neat. They would make great gifts for a graduate or a wedding couple. See . This is how Ken now supports himself.

While you are there, don't forget to look at . They are a homeschooling family of 11 children and sewing baby clothes, aprons and other things is how they pay their electric bill. They will sew adult dresses on request. I have had them do sewing for our tall girls, who can't find clothes that fit in the department stores.

It is always nice to get really nice things and support some families that work hard.
