The Craftiest Time of the Year

Eric’s family decided to give homemade gifts this year. We were all impressed with what we came up with and agreed that exchanging homemade gifts is more gratifying than the traditional consumerist approach.

Eric and I gave paintings, home brewed hard cider, and jewelry made from shells from a family vacation:

For Grandpa
For Cinda
For Amy & Cinda
In return, we received these wonderful gifts:  

Display trays made from records

"All purpose cups" from mason jars and candle sticks

A literal "book bag," made from a book

Hand made stationery with envelopes

Chalkboard wine glasses & cork board

Peace wreath made with sticks and twine

And a Mardi Gras wreath
