Lately I have been much more hands-on with my home. I'm cooking more and creating my own decorations instead of purchasing items already made. A Homemade Christmas is the perfect book for someone like me, who would rather add their own personal touches to holiday decor. A lot of the crafts could be tweaked a little so that you could make an item to use all year round. The recipes are great and so easy to follow. I definitely recommend this book.
