Book Review: A Homemade Christmas

I was given recently the opportunity to review a book called A Homemade Christmas (Creative Ideas for an Earth-Friendly, Frugal, Festive Holiday) by crafter Tina Barseghian. It was published September 1, 2010 by Harlequin. In her book, she offers inspiration and easy-to-follow how-to's to craft this year's holidays into your most memorable celebration yet. With her delicious recipes, tips and countdown-to-Christmas projects, Tina Barseghian, reminds readers that you don't need to blow the budget or stress out because it's almost Christmas. The key to a relaxing, joyous holiday season includes involving your children, family members, and friends in the fun.

The book is filled with great ideas on how to be creative this festive season. I'm a person who loves to get creative and loves crafting. I think it will be also fun to have my little toddler Brandon to help out too. My favorite is creating a customized pop-up card.

Making something with your own hands—whether it's a plate of just-baked cookies, a handcrafted stocking, a homemade wreath, or a hand-folded origami ornament—is a great way to connect with the true meaning of Christmas.

From holiday decorating to gift giving, A Homemade Christmas is chock-full of projects, recipes, tips, and helpful hints that are guaranteed to add a homemade touch to your holiday season. Open this charming volume to any page and discover a wealth of practical and easy-to-accomplish ideas for a homemade holiday:

• create personal, distinctive holiday greetings
• deck the halls with festive, handmade trimmings
• cook simple but memorable homemade dishes
• make unique, handcrafted gifts
• share the joy of the season with friends and family

Packed with inspiration and how-tos for ideas that are family-friendly and eco-conscious, festive and meaningful, A Homemade Christmas will put homemade back into your holidays!

The book is available for purchase directly at eHarlequin online store or on Amazon.com.
