Give the Gift of HANDMADE

We have all been Blessed this year!
Of the many gifts, we have been blessed
is creativity and the willingness to learn.
Share that Gift that God has blessed you with
by giving something Handmade.
This can be any time of year.
From the many classes I have taught
I have met some wonderful people
take the skills you have learned
create something wonderful
and share it with another.

Be Blessed!
