If family members are pestering you for suggestions of things they should get you for Christmas, it’s difficult to say you really want a $15,000 wide-belt Timesaver.
But if you don’t speak up, you’re gonna get a necktie or worse.
Every year I publish a gift guide on my blog at Popular Woodworking Magazine that is comprised of small things that you will find really useful but won’t destroy your daughter’s $20 gift limit. The first five entries are up now.
My daughter Maddy has been stuffing envelopes this afternoon and reports she still has more than 300 sticker sets left. So don’t worry about us running out.
Several customers have included notes that say: If you are out of stickers, it’s no problem. Keep the $5 for your education.
And people say this is a mean world.
If you’d like a set of stickers for your very own, send an SASE and a $5 bill to:
Stick it to the Man
P.O. Box 3284
Columbus, OH 43210
Maddy will take your SASE and put three high-quality vinyl stickers – one of each design – in your envelope and mail it to you immediately. (If you send $10, she’ll send two sets; $15 will get you three sets). These are the nicest die-cut stickers we could find and should even be suitable for outdoor use, according to the manufacturer. The stickers are made in the United States, of course.
This is Maddy’s second job, by the way. She also intubates pigs for a research lab.
By the way, Katy has been making more wax and we have some up in her etsy store now. Check that out here – there’s plenty of time for Christmas delivery.
