Reminder – Handmade Gifts!

We are seeing more and more fantastic ideas on the internet this year for handmade Christmas gifts! You know you want to make them… but you know if you don’t start now, you’ll end up at the mall the day after Thanksgiving elbowing each other to death before you’ve even had your coffee! Join us in reclaiming the spirit of gift giving, and start something now! Then enter your project, even if it’s not quite done, in our Challenge for a chance to win some terrific goodies!

There’s loads of inspiration on our November Challenge Page.  Here’s some more:

Make a set of stationery or a travel memory book and present it in a cool box like this one by Kristine Reynolds:

Wow someone with a gift of dried herbs from your garden. Put them in pretty cello bags tied with ribbons and present them in this beautiful Butterfly Box also by Kristine Reynolds:

Make someone a set of gift tags! Everyone uses tons of them, how lucky they’d be to have ones as elegant (and easy to make!) as these by Asia King:

Our Challenge ends on Nov 28, so please link your project up soon! December’s Challenge will be Clean And Simple (CAS) Holiday Cards (for those of us who still haven’t started ours! Yikes!).
