Its almost the end of the year – school concerts, graduations and parties are all in full gear – presents are being handed out and lovingly made. Its a very special time of year as the excitement builds. This year we are [almost] skipping the mall and are doing the diy thing. We made a bunch of cashew brittle for grownup friends, and lovely buntings for the little girls in my life, we also supported the local Tibetan store which helps Tibetan refugees. But of course the kids do have some things on their list that are really quite impossible to make – so that is where the internet comes in really handy. Whatever your gift giving plans these holidays – remember to keep your stress levels low -and include some diy and handmade goodies for your loved ones – look out next week on whipup for some diy gift guides to help you out.
