I am by nature, a do it yourself-er.  You may have seen an image floating around on social media, that suggests why buy something for $5.00 when you can make it yourself for $90.00 in supplies? Yeah, well, there are a lot of crafters and do it yourself-ers out there.  I am totally not alone in this.  

A few people who love me dearly suggested I may be over doing it when I wanted to make my own marshmallows from scratch.  

Gifting items that are hand made is expensive.  Not to mention time consuming.  It can be all consuming depending on your personality.  And, sadly, more often than not the toiled over, expensive hand made item is met with something far less than gratitude.  

By now, I am asking myself, and I bet you are too… if it is expensive, takes up way too much time, and nobody likes it, why on earth do I / you / we do it?  Well – if you’re like me, you know the answer.  Quite simply, we can’t help ourselves.  We are do it yourself-ers.  It is what we do.  

In an act of solidarity, and in an effort to enable my fellow crafters, I have gathered a collection of quick to make, and totally cool gifts.
