I love receiving homemade gifts throughout the year, especially during the holidays! I love when my friends and family make luscious beauty products or write festive poems about the season or knit beautiful scarves or throws. I adore that Pinterest and shows like “The Chew” have inspired us to be crafty and work with our hands to not only create delicious food, but amazing crafts and gifts our friends and family will treasure. Don’t you?
Yesterday on “The Chew” one of my favorite chefs and interviewee’s on the planet, the one and only chef Carla Hall inspired us to get crafty with her three easy homemade gifts that are fun to make and our friends and family will love (that is if I don’t keep everything I make for myself)! 🙂
