This morning I was given the assignment to blog....
I didn't know what to blog about, so I asked Dad for a suggestion, and he said to blog about making gifts instead of buying them.
Well, I think that a handmade gift is more special than something that was just puchased and wrapped, and it comes from the heart. It is made specifically for the person it is given to. It takes more thought, preperation, and work, than going out, seeing something that you think they would like and purchasing it. Plus, if they don't like what you bought them, they can return it, but if they don't like what you made them, they just have to suck it up and like it anyways.
I personally appreciate a handmade gift much more than something that was most likely made in China. I know that the person who made it for me loves me and they want me to have something that they made, specifically for me, with their own hands, and not some big machine in a foreign land.
