Family cookbook

Everyone says you are the best chef in the family? Why not make them a beautiful scrapbooking album of all your best recipes?

Children art project

Whether it’s a pretty picture, a calendar, a Paper Mache sculpture or to simply decorate the pots that will go in your basket of goodies, people will be touched by the original artwork made by your children!

Knit

Hats, mittens and scarves: All parents know we never have enough of those when our children insist on losing them all the time!

Memories Quilt

A project that takes time but that is very significant! For more originality, why don’t you try creating a nice family logo you can embroider on your quilt?

A painting

Jewelry
