Hello and welcome! If you are looking for Angela Flicker’s A Crafty Holiday Blog Hop event you are in the right place! For those of you just now jumping on board, here’s the scoop: 35 bloggers are joining together to share our thoughts on giving handmade gifts for the holidays. One blogger is highlighted every day from November 1 – December 16. You can view the full schedule here.
So, what does it mean to me to give a handmade gift? It means a whole lot. In essence, giving a gift is sharing your heart. Tangibly giving someone something that represents your relationship. The good times, the bad, the joy, the tears, the hugs…
I think we’d all agree that relationships don’t develop over night. This is why I love giving handmade gifts, they aren’t made over night either. They are a result of intention, time and effort all poured into something beautiful. They have personality, charm and even a few blemishes. That’s what makes them unique. That’s what makes them one of a kind. Special. And worth the effort. That is why giving handmade gifts is important to me. It helps me get one step closer to tangibly showing those I love just how much I care.
