I want to know who is responsible for time going so fast!! I just looked at the calendar and realized Thanksgiving is two weeks from today! How the heck did that happen? I realize Thanksgiving is earlier than usual this year….but still! I cannot believe how fast this year has (almost) gone by! yikes.
Well, I had planned on doing several of installments of “Simple Handmade Gifts” before Christmas rolled around…but at this rate I’ll be lucky to get one more in! I’ll do my best though.
So let’s get right to it! Here is the latest installment of my favorite handmade gift ideas curated from across the world wide web.
(Disclaimer: Similar to parts 1 – 5, not all of the gift ideas listed have tutorials attached, and some even link to Etsy shops or other places where you can purchase the item. But I included them if I thought they were simple enough to easily replicate. Also, some are not 100% “handmade”, but again, if they were SIMPLE ideas and had some personalization to them, they were included.)

To prepare: mix according to the package directions for the lemonade mix.
