Less to Spend on Gifts This Holiday Season?

Craft & Lifestyle Expert, Terri O's Low-Cost, Do-It-Yourself Gift Ideas

Elmwood Park, NJ--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - With the tightening economy, higher gas and food prices, for many there may be less to spend on gifts this year. But you don't have to spend a lot of money to show someone how much you love them -- that's why families are turning to craft projects as a unique and personalized low-cost solution.

In fact, last year, 56% of crafting households used completed craft projects as gifts, 32% for home décor, and 25% for holiday decorating. This number will continue to rise, as the tightening economy puts a strain on the financial situations of many families.

From online scrapbooking to jewelry making and beading, Terri O has ideas for it all.
