In 2010, I celebrated the holiday season with Handmade Christmas 2010.
For me, this meant:
-Hand making all the Holiday Greeting Cards I mail out to friends and family across the country.
-All gifts I give this Christmas season will be either be handmade by me, or purchased from an individual who created it themselves.
-All wrapping, packaging, and gift tags will also have a handmade touch.
-For an added bonus, this year I will also be decorating a Christmas tree in all handmade, paper ornaments and decorations.
Even though Handmade Christmas 2010 has come and gone, I invite you to consider having your own kind of Handmade Christmas this coming holiday season. You do not need to keep the same guidelines and goals as I’ve stated – find what works for you! I’d love to hear about what your plans are to incorporate Handmade Christmas into your holiday plans. [Also, may I encourage a Handmade Hanukkah, Kwanza, or generally winter merriment?]
