The Doers

Crafters, artisans, foodies - all doers. We consider ourselves doers too - always on the go and coming up with something new to share. 

It's a delight to create a card, package an item in a special way or make something delicious to wrap up for a loved one during the holidays. It represents a piece of you - time and creativity combined - to make a uniquely special gift. 

I have a girlfriend who spends days making chocolate truffles for all of her friends. Packaging them up so beautifully, she personally delivers them each year. This is the type of present my kids will start talking about right after Thanksgiving. Wondering when Aunt Katie is going to deliver those truffles is as much a part of our December conversations as what Santa might be bringing. I don't have to go into the details of the fights that ensue if someone eats more than their share, but I can honestly say it's a beloved gift that has created tons of happy memories over the last 14 years. 

Our artist Sawn has a family tradition of making homemade dumplings for her friends that are so yummy, we encouraged her to share her recipe here. Regardless of what your specialty is in 'doing', we wish you the happiest of holidays creating memorable gifts.

Happy Holidays,

Melanie
