Spending time searching for the perfect project, creating one of my own or even seeing one and thinking “I’ll make that for ….”.
Anyone who makes handmade craft knows that it can be expensive to procure all the supplies you need and the hours spent trying to get it just right. It is a labour of love and I would not miss that for the world. So much is learnt every time a project is completed. A new technique or an improvement in the way you tackle it.
I have to admit I am not one for full on instructions. I am more a fly by the seat of my pants and see how it goes kinda girl.
The hardest part of giving a gift you have made yourself is if the recipient knows you made it and how much blood, sweat and tears goes into it. I find it even harder when the gift is going to someone who I will not see open it.
Would you be brave enough to add it to your next gift?
