25 Days of Christmas--Day Nine

Hello, folks, and welcome back for Day Nine of Jill Savage's 25 Days of Giveaways. Here's Jill's question for Day Nine: What homemade gifts are your favorite to give or receive? I do try to make gifts sometimes...some times more successfully than others! We usually put together tins or plates of cookies for friends and neighbors. I've also made different "gifts in a jar," with cookie, brownie, and soup mixes. I've made aprons for a couple of my sisters, my mom, and my mother-in-law. I've also created photo calendars for my mother-in-law and brother-in-law, and a coupon book for Mr. B. I won't say what homemade gifts the girls and I have been working on this year, just in case a gift recipient is reading this post, but we do have a couple of projects in progress! I do love receiving homemade gifts. Last year, a friend gave me a little package of lovely cards she had created (she's so talented!). I have a "trivet" (actually, a painted six-inch tile) a former student once gave me. My sister, Molly, has painted me a couple of beautiful paintings (I still need to frame them!). Do you have any good homemade gift ideas? How about any homemade gifts you like to receive?

    This year I'm making some photo albums for some of Jeff's family. :)
