What a lovely day! I think making gifts is such a thoughtful and personal way to give gifts. People know you have put effort into making gifts and its something really special.
It takes a little patience but its so worth it. Obviously I handmake all my jewellery so it its always made with care and attention, but because I love making things I don’t stop there.
I thought I would tell you about the gift I made for my Mums 60th birthday. I contacted all her friends and family asking for pictures and fond memories of her. It took a while but I got them back from all over the globe! I then made her a scrap book putting photos and stories as well as decorations in it. I’ve got to say it took me a while and at some points I was swearing at it, but it was so worth it in the end. I gave it to her in the morning of her birthday and she took an hour to read it all through. Laughter, tears and sighs were a plenty!
