the giving season is coming

isn't she pretty??? I can't remember where I found her now... I am sure on some blog or another that I adore! I may use the image for to/from tags for the holiday season. It is fast approaching this year and with the current financial state of the world, it is going to be a very handmade christmas. Can I tell you what joy that brings me. Now I love presents and stuff just as much as the next girl! But I my favorite thing of all is a handmade present. One that shows that the giver really put some thought into who the receiver is and what they are about. Lucky for me I have surrounded myself with a group of friends and family that are amazingly talented!

I am planning on doing a lot of knitting and soap making for people this year so I had better get started. What are you planning on making?

many years ago my father-in-law suggested just such a handmade christmas. looks like I will finally get my wish!

I insisted upon a 'handmade holiday' a couple of years ago when pressies were getting a little out of hand. The home/hand made gifts are always so amazing and truly unique to each person. I'd better get thinking too...
