This week we are sharing some fun projects that you might want to give as a gift. They aren’t too time-consuming, so you can easily get them done in time for the holidays. We apologize for the cuts in the video – our brains weren’t engaged very well – obviously!!
We are also sharing a project that Teri has been wanting to try for a few years – a yo-yo Christmas tree. We are adding it as a free download which you can find here [pdf version | jpeg version].
Have a great week!
Teri & Marty
