I love making gifts that have been personally planned with a specific recipient in mind. I so enjoy making gifts for family…each year on special holidays, sometimes Christmas…sometimes birthdays…I try to complete a handmade gift. My grandchildren received handmade scarves and or hats this year. The oldest finally got a rib knit hat in his team colors, the Cowboys. His siblings, received handmade clipboards personalized with their names. My daughter-in-law has a birthday not long after Christmas and finding a special gift for her so close to the holidays can be a challenge. I decided to add personalized handmade gifts to the candle sticks I had already picked out for her. Her clipboard is in pretty creams & purples. Since I had a bit of the pretty papers left I decided to make a matching card too.
