Time to get crafty, ya’ll. The holidays are just around the corner, so I thought I would try to inspire some homemade magic with you all. My favorite gifts are always the ones that are handmade and personal. Wouldn’t you agree?
In the past, I have made beeswax candles, soaps, lip balms, and lotions. One year we made so much bath salts that we still had some left over the next holiday season. Winter time always inspires me to get crafty as the cold weather keeps us indoors. We tend to take on lots of little projects to keep us occupied and busy (like we need to be more busy, right?) And it makes me happy. I’m a DIY crafter at heart. Here are some of my favorite DIY gift ideas that I have seen lately.
