12 Days of Christmas, Day 6: Ultimate Homemade Christmas Gift Guide

Hello my friends, and welcome to day 6 of the 
12 Days of Christmas Series!

I am so glad you could join me today as I give you some ideas for handmade gifts.

Giving something handmade tells a person you care. 
If gives the sense that it came from the heart, and that person can always remember a piece of you.

Some of these gifts are from last years gift guide, some are new, and some are other bloggers.
Lets begin!

Remember these, Homemade Pot Holders?
Its not cheesy when you make them in cool vibrant colors! And let me tell you, I love mine, they work so much better than regular pot holders!
