Perfectly Practical For the Holidays

It's getting to be that time of year again when we start to think of what to get our loved ones and friends for Christmas. We want something unique and different that they will love and cherish for many years to come.

Here's a list of truly amazing handcrafters who can help make your Christmas a very special one this year. These women, and two men, make unique one of a kind items ranging from crocheting to whirlygigs. All of these crafters take great pride in their work and guarantee their work will last. You won't be sorry when you purchase from these wonderful people. Your only problem will be deciding on what gift to get.

Each crafter is listed with a link to their websites where they sell their items or to their blogs where you can learn more about their items and themselves.

I hope you will take the time to check out these amazing people and their crafts. You won't be sorry you did.

Maxine has some beautiful jewelry and her rugs look like you could just sink into them, they look so soft and fluffy.
