Handmade Gifts

As the holiday gift season approaches, most of us begin  thinking about gift giving.  One of the most meaningful gifts is a handmade gift.  A handmade gift has a part of the artist's heart in it.  It is a planned and thought-out idea created from the artist's mind into an original creation. Handmade gifts are kept by the receiver and valued as treasures from the giver, whether the gift is jewelry or other original handmade wares.  This season, pause and slow down long enough to choose a handcrafted gift to fit the receiver instead of just mindlessly picking up SOMETHING to give as a gift!
