Today is Make a Gift Day

When we think about the gifts we plan to give the
people in our family for Christmas - or a birthday - we tend to think about a gift we will purchase. While there is certainly nothing wrong with purchasing a gift, think this year about giving a gift you make to those on your list.

Each year, for the past six years, I've made crocheted hats for my grandsons for Christmas. This year I decided to make something different and crocheted them each a scarf - it looks like a tongue sticking out a mouth with teeth! I just couldn't crochet a simple scarf!

Whether you crochet, sew, knit, bake, paint or craft a gift, consider making at least one gift for the people on your list. It is a wonderful way to give a part of yourself to those you love - and gives you the opportunity to pray for the person receiving the gift while you make it.

What do you do to craft gifts for the people you love?
