I love handmade things, and I love fun surprises! I would love it if you made something just for me!

Here are some ideas:

  1. Decorate boxes around the size of a shoebox. Could be a great craft activity for kids.
  2. A 20oz mug that you personalize somehow
  3. Music, stories, or poetry you wrote.
  4. Sculptures or artwork made by you or the kids
  5. Textiles, knitstuff, sweaters, etc
