Knitting to Make Holiday Gifts

I like to knit during the holiday season as an easy and affordable way to make last-minute gifts and stocking stuffers. Knitting always allows me to come up with creative ways to please every person in my family. For the teenagers, who like unusual and bright clothing accessories, I knit them socks with bright stripes on them and colorful stocking caps.

I find that knitting relaxes me and gives me a way to pursue the creative side of me. For gifts for my husband, I often knit him thick gloves he can wear when he is cleaning the snow off of the drive way or large, baggy sweaters in his favorite colors. When I am not knitting, I like to watch my satellite tv specials and enjoy the variety of shows. This gives my hands a chance to relax from knitting and before long, I am back to creating more gifts! I also like to knit Christmas tree ornaments and decorations for friends, neighbors, and extended family members. They treasure the homemade gift and I enjoy making them.

I appreciate the guest post, Jewel Rodgers

Impromptu New Year's Eve party

**A party can be a good general gift you can give to a group of people without having to worry about little gifts for everybody.**

Last year it was about noon on New Year's Eve and I decided that I was going to throw a party that night. I called a few of my friends and told them to bring over their families for it, along with some refreshments. I was afraid that it was just going to be our family because it was so last minute, but it was actually one of the best New Year's parties that I've ever attended! It was so nice to not have to have been worrying about this for days before the actual party and stressing out about finding recipes for it and stuff like that. I've thrown parties where it's been like that before, which definitely took away from the fun that we had in the end.

Well I was thinking about how much fun that was and when I wad doing that I came across this website and after I read through it a little bit, I signed our household up for one of the packages I found on there.

I'm actually thinking about doing an impromptu New Year's Eve partyagain, but I don't think that we will. I doubt that I could make it that successful two years in a row.

Going Skiing Near You

**Some gifts can't come in physical form like objects but a well thought gift like a ski trip can be fun filled and sure;y has a personal touch. Ideal for couple, friends or the whole family. **

Skiing is an important winter sport or recreational activity. Skiing and snowboarding can be found in many places. If you are going skiing in the Wausau, Wisconsin area then Granite Peak Ski area is the perfect choice for you to pick.

Granite Ski park is locate at the Rib Mountain state park and they feature seventy four runs, and seven lifts. They offer their visitors lessons as well as accomodation, and ski packages. For an adult to go skiing all day at Granite Peak it's $28.00 a day, and for children ages six to twelve and seniors over sixty five it's only $22.00 a day. The skiing season at Granite Peak usually starts December 13, but it does start earlier such as this year depending on the weather, and usually ends around March 20th. Granite Peak also offers night skiing from 4pm to 9pm. Granite Peak is in Wausau Wisconsin at the Rib Mountain State Park.

Skiing with your friends, or even your family is an enjoyable experience, but you will need to make sure that you make the proper precautions before you go out to the ski hill. You will want to make sure that you have turned everything off, and you will want to make sure that you set your home security alarm from before you leave the house to have the most enjoyable experience.
