Site Build It!

It hard to find website links that have a lot of good information and clear instructions to follow when making your own homemade gifts.

Do you need some great homemade gift ideas from some very creative and talented people? I know that from time to time I certainly need something to get my creative juices a flowing.

Working an art teacher, I am constantly looking for websites and website links that contain creative arts and crafts projects and homemade gift ideas that I can use at home and in my classroom. I have started a list of my favorite links. These links are full of great information and wonderful artists and crafts people. Kids craft projects, art ideas for the holidays, crafts and home projects are just a few links you will find here! Click around and see where your mouse takes you.

See Jack's interview with me in the July 2008 e-zine news letter!
Highland Wee Cows Our wee cows have been handmade, placing the single strands of hair in different positions to give each their unique look. Artist oil paint was used to give their hair the right colour and highlights, followed by a protective coating to make them withstand harsh weather.
