Summary: (from the publisher)
Making something with your own hands – whether it’s a plate of just-baked cookies, a handcrafted stocking, a homemade wreath, or a hand-folded origami ornament – is a great way to connect with the true meaning of Christmas. From holiday decorating to gift giving, A Homemade Christmas is chock-full of projects, recipes, tips, and helpful hints that are guaranteed to add a homemade touch to your holiday season.
What I liked or didn’t like:
- I liked the numerous ideas and suggestions on literally every page.
- The scope of the book was complete. The books covers everything from greetings, decorating, cooking, giving, to celebrations.
- I liked the values exemplified in the book – Christmas is not about buying “stuff.” The best gift are when we give thoughtfully of ourselves.
- The philosophy behind A Homemade Christmas is simple: Giving part of yourself – your time, effort and talent – will help you get into the genuine holiday spirit
- The book was small. I’d love to see it expanded.
Recommend?: Yes. Write this one down for next year, like about September.
I first found this book at the library and was immediately charmed. When I had a chance to get a review copy, I jumped at it. Thanks to Harlequin Books for the ARC you allowed me to download on my Kindle. A Homemade Christmas is also available at Amazon. (I am an Amazon Associate.)
This is Book #9 in The Spirit of Christmas Challenge.
