Today Sarah and I are thrilled to be a stop on the Handmade Living Book Launch Blog Tour. We warmly welcome Rosalind Grace of Grace Designs, one of the contributors to the book, with this guest post on Christmas Giving the Handmade Living way.
Handmade items are usually stamped with a unique, limited edition appeal; knowing you are one of a small group of people to own your gift is quite a buzz. Mass-produced is almost a dirty word these days. I am also very happy to know ‘small hands in poor conditions’ haven’t made the gift I am giving or receiving!
Christmas is just around the corner and there are some enticing, simple projects in Handmade Living that I would classify as ‘achievable’ in the countdown to the 25th. Personally, I love to make gifts that are not only pleasing to the eye but useful and yummy…literally. A few of my favourite projects in Handmade Living that I can recommend are:
* The lovely Ipod cover by A Little Red Ribbon using gorgeous re-purposed fabric and linen
* Gorgeous Macarons from The Curious Chocolatier
I hope you are as eager as I am to get creative this Christmas. If things don’t work out to plan you can still shop ‘handmade’ and support local artists by doing so.
Thanks for having me Lisa and Sarah.
