The Handmade Holidays Blog Hop 2014: Day One!

Handmade Holidays 2014 Hop Logo

Welcome to the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We've gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can "hop" from one blog to another to check them all out.

We are so excited and honored to be taking part in this amazing event. You will leave each day with fabulous ideas perfect for every family member and friend. Make sure to follow along with the hop list below and visit our design team member's blog to see the great idea from them. And below the list, you will see who won the giveaway from the #G45GiftHowTos and you can get some great ideas from our Pinterest boards for the holidays and beyond!  

Nadya Lifa has a stunning gift idea on her blog today that is available in the links below. You will definitely want to check this great project out!
