2nd Annual Handmade Parade (Day 1)

Friends,

Happy New Year! If you're anything like us, you're glad the holidays have wrapped up and you're excited to de-clutter, get back into a routine, and start working on those resolutions.

But for now, we have one last Christmas item to revisit--sharing all of the handmade gifts we gave this holiday season. We have received so many wonderful photos and tutorials of handmade gifts that we've decided to make the parade a three part series. Woohoo!

Without further ado...

This has nothing to do with this post but I've been meaning to write and say that I am loving the home tours you are featuring. Great way to be inspired and I love a good sneak peek into a home!

Wow-there is a lot of talent out there. Handicrafts are not something I know anything about, hopefully this year I'll have some time to learn a bit so I can eventually give handmade gifts.
