Homemade Holiday

      With the holidays just around the corner and the shopping season about to kick into high gear, I find myself once again looking for the perfect gifts for family and friends.  While I try to find something unique to each individual every year, I'm finding it harder and harder to get excited about buying the latest gizmo or gadget. This year I've been leaning toward handmade custom gifts that compliment each recipient.

     While out shopping earlier in the week with a good friend, I showed her a picture of a gift I had in mind and she absolutely loved it! She then asked if I would make her one. Of course I agreed! So a few days later I got everything out and started crafting away and my husband asks if I would make one for his grandma too. Easy enough and by now I've worked out a lot of the kinks! I get about 2/3 of the way through my current masterpiece for my bestie and my sweet husband says, "That looks really good! You should sell those as gifts." Brilliant idea, right!  So as I craft these fabulous gifts I will be adding them to the project section of my blog. They will all be custom with whatever combination meets your needs (assuming I can find it and it is within my skill set). Feel free to check out the project page to see if I can lighten your shopping load...I will be adding more as I go. Also I will be offering Pink Friday for the second year for anyone looking to score a deal on their Mary Kay essentials. 

     Wishing you all the best as we begin another holiday season! Try not to lose perspective on the true meaning of the seasons in all the hustle and bustle!
