I think that homemade things are just the best! It means the world to me if I receive a handmade card. I have a niece who always makes me handmade cards and I cherish them and have saved everyone of them. I can't say that I make cards maybe one day when Maddy is older I will find more time in a day??? Maddycakes Muse friend and follower Amy attached the below photo in a blog comment. I thought her homemade garland story was too cute not to share! Here Amy's comment in her words:
Last year we had the (artificial) tree up, decorations out, and reminisced about each ornament; however, I realized that we had thrown out the garland from previous year and we couldn't proceed with decorating the tree. At that point we put our heads together and decided to 'make' garland out of something in the house. Since most of our decorations are primitive, we grabbed some clothes that were slated to be donated, took turns making strips & created a beautiful shabby chic garland by tying them together. Not quite Better Homes & Garden, but here's a photo:
Amy, so creative and your girls will never forget it! It is all about creating memories! Thank you for sharing!
