The only thing better than getting gifts is giving them, especially when they're homemade. In this book Clea Hantman creates objets d'art that scream "Give me to someone you love!" We're talking Lovely Luggage Tags, Happy Little Hand Warmers, Pet First-Aid Kits, and oh-so-much more. Azadeh Houshyar, Clea's trusty artistic sidekick, adds a hearty dose of color and spice and everything nice to make this book more irresistible than a warm mug of frothy cocoa on a chilly day. (Speaking of, did we mention the Haute Hot Choco Kit?)
You know, even the book itself makes a fab gift!
*Warning: Gratuitous hugging and kissing might follow.
In her early years, on a boundless quest to never be bored again, Clea Hantman picked up the craft bug. Thrift stores are now her home away from home; the faint scent of glue, her perfume. For Clea, crafting isn't just a hobby, it's a way of life! She lives this way in sunny San Diego with her hunky hubby, her brilliant daughter, and her movie-star dog. This is her sixth book.

Azadeh Houshyar owes her love of making things to her craft-a-holic mom who blessed her with a Hello Kitty sewing box at age 8 3/4. The box is long gone, but her trusty pink and silver Hello Kitty scissors are still a favorite crafting tool. An illustrator and designer, Azadeh lives in New York City with her other cherished cutting tools, an X-Acto knife and a superstyling Rotatrim.
