Who is on your Christmas list? Do you have loads of people that you are searching for the perfect gift? How about slowing down and taking the time to make a heartfelt handmade gift? Instead of spending your time schlepping from store to store searching make them something filled with love and meaning. Let go of the stress and say hello to sharing a piece of yourself.  Don’t let the holidays become a source of anxiety. Choose to have fun creating something special!

So what is on my handmade gift Christmas list? My girlfriends are getting zippered pouches or  a new boxy pouch (I promise to post the pattern very soon). I am making a another Advent Calendar (pattern coming soon)  for a family that holds a special place in our hearts.  We have several families we have made Advent Calendars and each year we send treats to refill.
