This my friends is the first of many handmade gift ideas I’m excited to share with all of you over the next few weeks. There have been many hours spent in the workshop lately and I’ve been loving every creative minute of it.
Handmade gifts are a real treat.
They can be incredibly personal, unique and are as much fun to create as they are to give.
I LOVE this log style bird feeder. (It’s a great one for those hard to get for guys, too!)
