It’s that time of year again. Graduation! While all of my kids are now out of High School they do have friends who are still graduating and we do know people graduating from college. It will still be a couple of years before any of our three college students graduate but you know I’m looking forward to that day. At least my checking account is anyway!
Whether you make all or just a part of the graduation gift it will cut down on some of the cost if you can handmake portions of it. Besides, it is always nice to receive something handmade no matter who you are! Right?
