Is the change of season into late autumn as pronounced for you as it is here? We have frosty mornings, blustery weather systems, and chilled fingers.
We’re making our handmade gift lists and checking them twice. Here are a few more ideas for gifts. I’ll be adding these to the main list, too, but here they are in their own spotlight.
A Month of Gifts to Sew – a fabulous, rich collection of ideas.
A fabric scarf holder. Such a great idea, particularly if you know a knitter.
For the kid/crafter/scrapbooker/mail artist in your life: handcarve an eraser stamp set – super easy. I do mine with just erasers and an exacto knife.
Or, on a similar note, foam stamps.
lip balm and many more recipes for lotions, scrubs, etc
Contact people in your family and ask for a holiday recipe and a holiday memory. Make a booklet.
Also caught my eye:
A list of ideas at Down to Earth.
An interesting blog post on some of the quandaries faced by those giving handmade items.
I hope your planning sessions are feeling as sweet as a cinnamon cookie!
