There is nothing like a homemade item for the holidays. Every year when my mom decorates her tree, she puts up this handmade ornament we gave her years ago. It says "from your Colorado star," she cries and thinks of me. I know she has a snowman I painted when I was a child that still hangs from the tree as well.

Some of the most treasured items people possess were not manufactured somewhere but created by a loved one or created by someone and given to you by a loved one. Where do you get those hand crafted, come from the heart, holiday items? You will be able to get tons of them at the Handmade For The Holidays expo on Sunday, December 8th, at the Hilton in Fort Collins from 10AM - 4PM. You can get all of the information about the event at the bottom of the page. This is going to be a great chance to get something meaningful for loved ones this year. So often our gifts are used and forgotten in days or weeks, but these handcrafted items will brighten the holidays for years and years to come. Hope to see you there!
