Here are some pieces I made as gifts for the holidays-- handmade presents are the best! I swear, there's nothing like giving or getting a gift that has that certain element of a hand's evidence. Plus you won't find everyone walking around with the same thing. Not to mention handmade presents don't require all that plastic and Styrofoam pre-packaged material, which means less carbon footprints on our lovely planet. So kudos to all you artists, crafters, and artisans out there who took the handmade path this year; and maybe some of you who didn't might want to try something new next time you have a gift to give... and who says you need an occasion to give a gift?
