The Perfect Gift

perfect gift Often wonder why people make such a big deal out of gift giving.

By the time you quit complaining, you could have made something.

Even if you’re not the handmade type, this may inspire you to change your mind.

Absolutely loved Crunchy Betty and her 40 Hot Homemade Gift Ideas for the Man in your Life … relax … you may be here awhile.

Then there is the TIPJUNKIE with Handmade Gift Ideas ... even though it’s the Christmas list…adapt.

and …

I can think of a hundred ways to adapt the “Older Than Dirt” jar for Valentine’s Day!

It’s the thought that counts and I’m pretty sure that means your thoughts.

Think about it:)

 

The Gift of Giving

There’s something very wrong with giving the same old standby gift every year … that’s how my mother ended up with 156 elephant statues, with their trunks up for good luck and 58 of those little shoes you buy at the card store.

I’ve been on a quest to buy handmade gifts and it made me realize how much access we have to so many talented and creative people.

The best part of purchasing a gift from a small business (whatever the gift may be) is that I’m really giving two gifts and that makes me feel really good!

I have a shop on Etsy and have found myself spending more time there. Such a fun place filled with amazingly talented people … that are so lovely to work with!

Even created a little HOHOHOmemade Etsy treasury list in the spirit of the season.

Last but certainly not least … while I don’t know many of my blog visitors personally … I do want to THANK YOU for stopping by and at times … letting me know that you did!

In the spirit of giving … just comment below or join us on Facebook and I’ll forward you a pdf of my Glass on Glass Mosaic Tile Project, as my holiday gift to you!
