My sister Tiffany is so talented. Last year for Christmas she was looking to make these thrifty personal gifts for family and she came up with great ideas. People liked them so much, that she began teaching classes about how to make them.
When she first moved to California she was interested in baking and she developed some of the most delicious recipes for cakes (namely, the best carrot cake you've ever imagined in your life).
She wanted some furniture from Pottery Barn, but didn't feel inclined to pay for it....so she made it. Yes, she build furniture from wood using a saw and nails.
And when we went home for Christmas break last December she took these fabulous pictures of my sweet little family, and then edited them with photoshop. Personally, I think being able to use that program is an accomplishment a lady can rest her hat on.
Thanks Tiff... you're the best, at lots of things!
