Friday Links: Holiday Craft Projects

Drawstrong bagI’ve written before on this blog about simple gifts and “The Sanctity of Giving.”  I love gifts, and I don’t believe opting out of holiday commercialism has to mean a moratorium on giving.  This week I’m sharing a few suggestions from the Tangled Nest archives: craft projects that can bring a handmade simplicity to your holiday gift-giving. There is definitely still time to make anything listed below.  It’s a curious paradox–when I’m super-busy, pausing to create something by hand makes me feel calmer instead of busier.

(And when there just isn’t time for homemade, take a look at my 2011 holiday gift guide).

What are you making as gifts this holiday season?
