When I tell someone that we exchange hand made gifts in our family at Christmas…..they smile.
And look at me as if to say…..bless your heart.
Does anyone really want a handmade gift?
And I smile right back and think…..
….if they only knew.
Because in our family…..we take our handmade gifts seriously.
The year my brother was on a budget.
He made us all nativity sets from acorns.
Last year my sister created this thistle picture for me…..
…..made up completely from the words of my first three months of blog posts.
Can you see why I smile?
And start my gifts in October…..
…..just to keep up.
Do you exchange handmade gifts in your family?
If you do….here’s a few ideas for this year.
