Holiday Gift Guide for the crafter or DIYer. 

Holiday Gift guide for the crafter or DIYer

I want all the crafty things! If you are shopping for anyone creative or crafty this holiday season, this is the gift guide you need. The Silhouette Cameo is one of my favorite craft items. Why? Because there is just so much you can do. Create your own t-shirt designs, using vinyl to decorate, or just doing papercrafts. 

Lettering is big nowadays so I included a book to help with those that want to start learning. Create your own metal jewelry with ImpressArt kits.

The gift guide has different price ranges to fit any budget. I encourage you to read through each of the suggestions and pick what you think would be the perfect gift for the creative in your life.
