I decided to embellish some composition notebooks for some friends who took my daughter to a church conference. I thought they'd make nice thank you gifts. I made matching bookmarks too. Why, oh why didn't I take pictures? They were really nice too.
It was so much fun. I started wondering why I don't make stuff more often. It's because I just don't make the time to do it.
Start Making Those Handmade Gifts Now
I know this sounds pretty crazy, but why wait until the last minute to make a gift for a friend or relative? Seems to me that the summer is the best time to do it.
1. You probably have a little more time now.
2. You have all the materials you need to make a dozen different crafts, but have made none so far. If you're like me, that is.
3.., You hate being stressed out during the holidays.
4. You'd like to give more personalized gifts.
5. You have no money to buy gifts.
