I appreciate home made or home grown Christmas Gifts, preferably ones that I can eat so that I do not add to the clutter in my home.

I am trying to get rid of a quarter century of clutter and the biggest item is paper. There is growing pile of business bookeeping, the old kind that uses columnar pads etc, before we got computerised.  All handwritten in my then fairly neat writing. Balanced each month, itemised and so forth. 

I now have the paperwork filed away by year, ready to dispose of it when the year comes around. Then there are the years before that I had stored  in boxes here and there.

So what is this to do with Christmas? rendeer

I have stacks of paper, I have a very good paper trimmer, and I have a number of small tins stashed away and I have some time.

I have started to make UNIQUE HAND-MADE SCRATCH PAPER. Suitable for shopping lists, telephone notes etc.

Started by measuring the inside of the boxes and then cutting the paper to size, making sure that the reverse side does not have any info that should not be there then wrapping them in paper pieces. Each container will have an assortment of different sizes thereby making full use of the paper.

My little message to my friends is to tell them that  every piece of paper is unique, and that I have spent many hours and years making them. Since 1997 if they get a vintage piece.  I hope they appreciate my little gifts.  Each little piece of paper will have different numbers on them, no two alike.

I doubt I will ever do this again.

Yesterday I attended a Craft Fair and visited my friend Marg who had a table there. and I was able to give her the first tin of "JANICE'S HAND MADE SCRATCH PAPER"  with each piece being unique.

Her first reaction was "Just what I want beside my telephone" and her further reaction when I told her that all it cost  was 25 cents for the container from the thrift store and 25 years of work was priceless.

I will only give these "expensive gifts"  to my friends who appreciate the work that it took in doing one's business accounts the old-fashioned way of hand-written ledger sheets.
