Crafty Gift Ideas | Mary Maxim

You guys know that I’m a crafter and I LOVE my crafts.  Whether I’m working on a new project to film a tutorial or crocheting a baby blanket to give to charity or a braiding a quick friendship bracelet with one of my kids I’ve always got a craft going.  (Or a dozen… or possibly more, but I’m getting off topic.)  So I thought what better way to help out the non-crafters in your life by sharing some crafty gift ideas I found from Mary Maxim.  I’m not saying this is my Christmas list, but I’m also not saying it isn’t.  😉

Thanks to Mary Maxim for sponsoring today’s post and sharing their love of crafting with all of us.
