I grew up being taught that a homemade gift is the best gift. I still believe this today because of the effort, thought, and creativity that goes into homemade crafts. I also find them very enjoyable to make. I can crochet or paint crafts while relaxing in front of the TV. Crafts and projects are great for the winter doldrums and having a place dedicated to them somewhere in your home really helps! Have you ever watched buying Alaska? My husband and I love watching that show. What always catches my interest is the couples that require a large heated garage or barn with a workshop. I get it! They need to keep busy in the winter when they can't be outside for long!
