This is such a busy time of year, and if you're like me, there just isn't enough hours in the day to get everything done. I've always aspired to make personalised Christmas gifts but I find that each year, I run out of time.

So it got me to thinking, what's the next best thing? Buying handmade! It's win/win. It's still a gift made with love, and you're supporting local small businesses and artists.
