If you've been reading for a while (or maybe even a day?) you know that I like making things. Yup, I'm open to pretty much any type of craft there is. I think all the time about my first crafting projects I did with my Grandmother when I was little (mostly plastic canvas or beading) and am grateful to have had a crafty upbringing. It's been ingrained into my head that there is no reason to buy a blanket since you can just knit or crochet one. (And I tell ya, living in Minnesota, you use your share of blankets!)
Being so into crafts I typically try to give gifts that I have made. This is especially true when a friend or family member has a baby and I can give them something personalized just for them. When my niece was born I sent my Sister-in-Law a gift card as well as a hand-stamped necklace made by me. The necklace has my niece's name on it as well as pink and white crystal beads and a charm with hand-stamped little feet. I always hope the recipient of the gifts I make like them as much as I enjoy making them. It's always that much more meaningful to make something from the heart, with the person you are making it for in mind. For this gift I actually made it 2 days before Abigail was born, so I had a lot of thoughts going through my head about what she was going to look like, how the birth would go, and how excited I was to become and Aunt. All really good stuff.
In the spirit of crafty projects and handmade gifts you may be giving this holiday season, I am giving away 10 rolls of 3M Brand Double-Sided Scotch Tape to 10 people! That's 10 chances to win! (This tape would be perfect for scrapbooking!)
