Obviously, we at Five Corners love to make things. I mean, we do have a blog about it. But we also love to give friends and family handmade gifts that other people made. This Christmas, in addition to the things I made, I gave jewelry, pottery, prints, and a driftwood sculpture -- all made by wonderful local artists.
It's fun to be able to tell the gift receiver that the artist lives in your city or even to share a story about them -- you can't do that with items from Wal-Mart!
One of the gifts I gave was this print (1 of a series of 4) made by my pal Kathryn to help fund a trip to
Elephant Nature Park in Thailand for her 30th birthday! Read more about her project here.
