7 Homemade Christmas Gifts

Christmas Gifts

Finally, my boxes arrived and I was able to finish my small Christmas gift project. I felt like Santas elf while doing these endless gifts. So happy with the results! I only had a vision how they should look like and the results were just the way I liked it.

The last few months have been so dark here in Estonia. The sun comes out maybe once or twice a week or even once in few weeks. It´s sometimes like polar night! There are days when even in the middle of the day is quite dark. I don´t mind when sometimes is dark and I can read quietly with light. But for food photos, it´s quite annoying. So, I have had some trouble to make nice photos.

But looks like I´m not the only one who complains about natural light in Estonia. A week ago I went to a nice art exhibition of Estonian artist Ilmar Kruusamäe and even he said that he doesn´t paint this time of the year because he can´t see the natural colors. Of course, photography is different. But still, I don´t have the photo studio at home. In addition, I really like food photos with natural light. It just brings out the colors in the right way. However, soon it´s already January and the days get longer again. So, it´s not long to wait!

I´m one of the people who somehow really like homemade gifts. When someone has made something with their own hands, then I´m always happy to see that. It doesn´t have to cost much. It just important that it comes straight from the heart. Here I have put together a small guide for homemade gifts which are easy to make. Usually, the hardest part is to find a nice box, bag or a jar. I hope you will find something useful here.
