From the folks over at Sew Mama Sew - here goes!
Do you have a favorite gift that you love to give?
No, I really don't! I try to personalize gifts to each person's changing interests/hobbies.
If you’re making gifts this year, what are you making? (Post photos if you have some!)
I'm making some felt pincusions, some patchwork initial shirts for little cousins, crayon rolls, tissue holders, and knitted socks. Mostly things that can be completed in short bursts of crafting!
Do you have any good stories about handcrafted gifts you’ve given or received?
No, not particularly - I have, however, been disappointed at the lack of enthusiasm with which handcrafted gifts were received. I know that's not the reason to give, but come on - don't we all expect just a teeeny bit of excitement or thankfulness when someone receives something that you spent hours and hours on? (You know, like a quilt?!)
Do you have any great gift compilation ideas (a grouping of gifts just perfect for certain recipients?)
All the little ones on my list are receiving crayon rolls with crayons and sketch pads/coloring books this year. I can't think of anything better for a toddler/preschooler!
Name one thing on your personal wish list.
Oh, just ONE?! How about three or four...

Do you make and sell things that would make fantastic gifts? (Link)
Why, of course!
I'll be back with Part 2 of the meme (Traditions) later - crying baby, gotta go!
