dare to diy: give handmade

This week's Dare to DIY is to give handmade. If you still have someone on your Christmas list I highly recommend checking out some of the links, because there are some great ideas this week! Of course, the challenge is to post a homemade gift that won't spoil a surprise for a loved one.



The gift is nothing earth shattering. Using my newly re-discovered crochet skills I whipped up a scarf (and I'm halfway through another). These scarves will be on their way to Operation Gratitude as part of their Scarves for Troops project.


A scarf feels pretty insignificant when I think about our troops being so far from their families for Christmas, but since I can't bring them home hopefully I can bring a little bit of home to them.


For any of you who are serving or have loved ones serving our country, thank you. I wish there was more I could do. But for now, I'm off to finish my second scarf because I need to get these in the mail tomorrow!

Check out the four lovely Dare to DIY hosts and their gorgeous projects. I can't wait to tackle next week's project - decorations!
