Hey Look - blog header



The idea of "DIY gifts" sometimes gives me the image of pre-school macaroni-decorated picture frames or baskets of christmas cookies decorated with too many sprinkles in all colors of the rainbow. But homemade gift giving can be quite sophisticated, too. And it's a lovely way to show someone that you care about them. I've searched the web for ideas and instructions for DIY christmas gift and found some true beauties that are easy to make. Here are a few of my favorites:

  4. Hello,A homemade gift is constantly superior to something you can purchase at the store!Particularly for somebody who has everything or is difficult to purchase for.Regardless of the fact that its something as basic as personalizing an coffee mug,monogramming a casserole dish, or making a fun confection bunch!The greater part of these DIY gift plans are moderately simple and is possible a minute ago,while a couple of may take a tad bit of arranging,however they are all basic enough for pretty much anybody to do (no crocheting or sewing here).:)

  15. Afro Cuban. My dad is white and Australian. And I think because of my job, often a question like do you identify is really not about the question. I just saw your commercial representing a beautiful mixed family, and I am appalled that hateful people are in such a frenzy over what is a modern family structure. I applaud you and your efforts to acknowledge families with an untraditional structure, and there needs to be more mixed race, minority, adoptive non heteronormative families represented in media. Thank you again, and even though I do not eat cereal (my brother loves Cheerios BTW) you can be sure that whatever future child I am blessed with, may probably be mixed heritage, and will be enjoying your product..
