A new handmade food gift is cherished every bit as much as an heirloom. Like the work of those who lived before us, we can get by with little or no formal training.
The important thing is to continue to create our own unique signature and pass it along to others who will appreciate and respect the work of those who created cockerel crowing weather vanes, sculptures, teapots and tabletop and kitchen utensils.
Here’s an example of a simple gift for a friend: Fill a rubber (medical) glove with Hershey’s kisses. Attach a note with the words:
“I’d like to give you a hand.”
