6 Christmas Gift Ideas that are hand crafted and from the heart

Over the years I have created different hand crafted gifts for Christmas and here is a list of some of my favorites.

1. DIY Silhouette Nativity Scene

I really like the look of Silhouette crafts. I made this Silhouette Nativity scene using my Cricut cutting machine. Just take the backing off of the picture frame for the clear glass effect.

6. Personalized family calendar

Every 2 years or so I take on the big task of messaging all of my extend family members and creating a personalized calendar for my grand parents. Each month focuses on a different family. Adding a picture to the calendar for each persons birthday is one of my favorite features.
