I am not one to push the holidays and I cringe when I see holiday decorations and items on sale way, way to early. The exception I make in this department is with the starting of handmade gifts. Handmade gifts are wonderful, personal expressions of love but they do take time and therefore are best started early to avoid the stress of trying to do too much in much too little time.
Last November I gave a little presentation at the library about some of the quick handmade gifts I had made in the past. Being November, with the holiday season creeping up fast, they had to be quick ideas! But seeing as I plan on giving all handmade gifts this year I am starting that extra making right now.
I thought it would be fun to revisit some of those posts and provided links below.
I am still listening to the sounds of nature and our usual tunes as I create. No holiday music until November at the earliest but I am sure it will be playing at my mom's house before the end of this month!
Are you giving handmade this year?
What have you been making?
What is on your play list?
Please do share!
