Homemade Holidays: Week 1

I have written many posts on gifts that I have made and given. I love making the gifts that I give for many reasons. For starters, they are unique and not something that you can run to your local box store to pick up. I also find that I can give more bang for my buck. Since I am putting in the labor all I need to pay for are my supplies. Finally, I love to create and gift giving is a way for me to flex my creative muscles. Over the next several weeks I will be sharing with you gifts that I made and have not yet featured on my blog. This week, I will post a collection of gifts that I have already shared but thought with the Holidays approaching you may want to be reminded of them again. Please come back Wednesdays in November to see what I have to share with you!
