Did you miss me?

It has been a whole week since I have posted! In that time I have planed a few things, gathered a few things and gotten a couple awesome books. So I am well on my way. I am getting some things together to post on etsy as well as gathering up some etsy shops to highlight!

So let's talk ideas for handmade gifts for the holiday. Let's begin with those who are less than crafty. There are so many things that you can do. It just takes a little thinking. Can you follow directions? If you can then try this get a great coffee mug from where ever you can find them. Often times the dollar store will have great mugs. Add a couple of tea bags, a pack of hot chocolate or a single pot pack of coffee. Place the beverage package into the mug, add a pack or two of individually packed snacks such as biscotti or cookies or even some chocolates. Place into a gift bag or a decorative bag of some sort with pretty bows or ribbons add the card of your choice and you have the perfect break time gift for anyone from kids to coworkers!

Send me your great ideas! We can all use a little help with this handmade gift year! Stay tuned, In future posts I will include some more great gifts involving mugs!
