Update: Because this carnival is such a great topic for this time of year, I am leaving this carnival open for the next few weeks. People are welcome to enter multiple entries!
What speaks love and appreciation more than handmade gifts? Baked goods, homemade candies, knitted scarves, homemade candles, and more. I can’t wait to see what all of your ideas are!
To enter this carnival.
I was all set to use Mcklinky, but they seemed to have changed the layout, where it would direct you to a landing page on their site, instead of everyone being able to see the links here. So we will be going back to the old way of doing carnivals (or at least until I can find out if it’s possible for Mcklinky to work like it did last week! Any Mcklinky experts out there?)
Bloggers: Do a post on your blog sharing one idea or several. Share links too! Remember to link back to this post and come here and enter the carnival by leaving your post information like this.
