There is something about the holidays that brings out the creativity in me. I enjoy making gifts for loved ones. It slows the holiday frenzy down and I can savor time at home instead of rushing around. It’s fun to gather a group of friends to create together over a glass of warm cider, hot chocolate or wine. Most of these ideas from the archives can come together in very little time and are easy on the budget. Click on the highlighted link to get the instructions.
