Fall. Autumn. Whatever you want to call this time of year, it’s still my favorite! The weather turns cooler, the days a little shorter and all of a sudden craft shows, street fairs and pumpkin patches start springing up everywhere!
And maybe it’s because we can see Christmas and the gift-giving season in the distance, but this time of year makes me want to make something!
I spend all year gathering a list of little knick knacks and gifts I want to make for my friends and family. Turned pens made from exotic woods. Desktop clocks with encouraging quotes. Tons of other items that, if history is an indication, will never be made.
I do hope to break that repeating historic pattern this year! It’s not too late – in fact the time is perfect! The time is now!
Do you like to give hand-made gifts? Do you sew, quilt, paint, woodwork, throw pottery or something completely different?
What will you be making for your loved ones this year?
