My daughter made me a lovely mixed media piece as a personalized gift, using a lid from a shoe-box as a canvas. What a brilliant and frugal idea! And the art is super adorable and meaningful as well.
Making gifts is so much more personal than buying gifts any day, and as such, this one it super special to me. I feel honored receiving a gift , knowing that she spent time and thought into making something just for me. Homemade gifts save money, but they certainly do not save time.
