Homemade or Handmade whichever you prefer; gifts that are made when the mind, heart and soul merge and speak through, one's hands. I love receiving creative gestures of kindness; a gift from the heart. I love to make homemade gifts, cards, treats and give them away. Every Christmas we try to make a few homemade gifts, it reflects, the message of the season, giving of oneself to others. We also try to give in other ways, donations and time. The rules are handmade and something the recipient would like. I suggested one year, when our son was into the" Matrix" to make an enclosed frame and put in the TV guide collector's editions. My husband created this; It matches the dvd stand, he also made him.
I know several online artists, that make heartfelt gifts, Becky Shander is one. Here is a journal she made, that I just love. Becky loves to use practical, everyday items to make unique gifts. Her Believe necklace is a favorite of mine. I wear it often and it reminds me, we all need to believe in ourselves and our dreams!
Colette Copeland, makes heartfelt art,she makes angel wings, beautiful
cards and many other unique gifts.
Colette , takes her heartfelt gifts literally, she recently opened a heart shaped store.
Karla Nathan, uses vintage items, treasures from the past, to elevate the ordinary. You would enjoy her heartfelt adventures, with her granddaughter.

Two new friends, Chrissy and Jenny practice giving from the heart. Chrissy has painted words of wisdom to share; she also inspires with words and photos! She also features a lot of other artist's work. Jenny has started doing mixed media and makes beautiful cakes. She is making a wedding cake for a friend, now that is truly a great gift from the heart!
