Spirit of Christmas

This year I've pledged to purchase & create as many handmade gifts as I possibly can and I've already begun buying from several of my favorite artists on ETSY. Packages have been arriving daily and I'm having a blast wrapping up these unique goodies in festive papers & bows. I am giddy with anticipation of when the recipients will unveil the hidden treasures inside, knowing the care and love that went into the creation that was chosen just for them! Handmade is a gift from the heart made with loving hands that leaves a lasting impression, nothing is held more dear.
