We all want to give everyone on our list something special but in today’s economic climate, it just doesn’t seem possible. This year may be different. There’s a feeling of what is really important, bringing us closer to our families and friends. This year give from the heart – and your hands. Handmade gifts mean so much more because you put a part of yourself into each one.
