Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter and Halloween! All of those holidays are traditional times begging for handmade gifts, cards and decorations. I used to make decorations and cards with the boys. I still give them a Christmas ornament every year. Sometimes it’s still handmade. I have started the tradition now with my grandchildren. I like the idea that in the future they might pull them out at Christmas and tell their own children or grandchildren where it came from. Memories are precious and handmade items seem to absorb them and unleash them at some future time to awaken happy moments.
