Don't forget to stop by the nonfiction shelves when you visit the library at this time of year.
Whether it's as simple and inexpensive as a fresh baked, braided loaf of bread, as sweet as fudge, or as colorful and creative as a home-made kite, a gift you make yourself expresses your feelings for a friend as nothing else can. And making that gift with thought and care is a joy to the maker as well as to the receiver.
Holiday projects that you make with your family, friends or as a couple can become treasured memories and happy traditions that deepen your appreciation of the season. They are a great way to slow down and spend time enjoying the very best aspects of the holidays together.
