Ever since I was about 10 years old, I realized the appreciation that comes with handmade gifts. At the time I could only do a little knitting, and I hadn’t yet found out about online stores such as Etsy or Craftsy.
Above: My first ever gingerbread house (From Scratch!!!!). My family has never had a gingerbread house for Christmas before. But after I read yet another Christmas book which had a gingerbread house in it, I decided I would (hopefully) make one every year from now on.
When I was a kid, my family watched the movie ‘Balto’. ‘Balto’ is a children’s movie about the dog sled team that pushed through a blizzard to deliver antitoxin to diphtheria-stricken Nome, Alaska.
