As I got dressed to go outside this morning, I grabbed my favorite scarf.  It's one that my friend Amy made for me, using yarn in my favorite colors. It's not just warm and practical on a cold day like today, but it also gives me a warm feeling, knowing that my friend took time to make it for me.

It's so nice when people share their talents with one another. I have friends who this week are busy baking biscotti and cookies that they will give as holiday gifts.  Another friend is working on a quilt that she'll give her sweetheart for Christmas.

These are all lovely expressions of creativity and caring.  And, frankly, they're a nice change from store-bought gifts.  Plus, there's no risk of getting a duplicate and having to return one of them.  Hats off to those of you who share your crafty, culinary or other creative talents at this time of year!
