Do-It-Yourself {Gift Collective}

Well, it is that time of year again and the holiday’s are upon us!   Wasn’t it just last week that it was 80 degrees?  {Oh yeah, that was last week!}  To help us out a bit, over the next few weeks I am going to bring you some gift selections from some of my most creative and ingenuous friends, designed to inspire the creative gift giver in us all.

Today’s guide is curated by yours truly, and is focused on the DIY gift.  Since we are still in the middle of November, there is still plenty of time to decide, buy supplies, procrastinate, and then finally make these gifts a reality.  But with these gifts, as in most gifts, it is the personalization that will make these special.  These are great starting points but use your imagination and run with them.
