When I was a little girl I remember making little pots in school and decorations to be brought home for various holidays. Regardless of how the little tray looked to the adult eyes of my Dad, or the slightly tilted flower pot presented to Mom, the hand made gifts were fawned over and treasured. I even found a few of these during recents moves. Hand made gifts are from the heart because they involve your thoughts, hands, time and love.
From your hands to those you love, celebrate the gift of hand made.
Wishing you and yours a safe and lovely holiday season.
