Book Review: A Homemade Christmas by Tina Barseghian

I am excited with the approaching Holiday season. I am looking forward to doing more holiday baking and crafting with my children this year. I love making presents for family and friends. To me it is deeply personal and has more meaning then anything I could purchase.

A Homemade Christmas by Tina Barseghian is a great resource to help spark your creativity. The crafts and recipes are simple and work with every skill level, many being extremely kid friendly.

The book is divided into 5 topics. Greetings, Trimmings, Cooking, Giving, and Celebrating. I love that the tips and projects in this book are practical. You do not need exotic ingredients for the recipes or hard to find craft supplies. Many of the projects can be made in a small amount of time. This is beneficial because we all get caught up in the holiday rush.

I am looking forward to making the Homemade Snowglobes with my children. I think this is a project that they will enjoy. If you are interested in holiday crafts and baking, you will certainly enjoy this book.
