Handmade Christmas gift ideas

I love to spend time looking thru tutorials online for inspiration. I have made quite a few things since I  happened upon this great creative outlet a little over a year ago. I used many different ones last year to help me make some special homemade gifts for family and friends. Over the last year I have taken the time to compile a list of my favorites. Or I could call it wishlist of the many things I would like to make.  I have been asked numerous times to share my list. I don't mind sharing it even though I add to it almost daily. If you make any of the great things listed be sure to thank the ones who wrote the tutorial. What makes blogs so appealing to me is the willingness of so many ladies and men to share their creative ideas. So without further ado I give you THE LIST! Enjoy!!
