Scrambling to finish your holiday shopping? Here's a roundup of gift ideas for you, whether you prefer to buy or make your gifts.
Want to give the gift of nature photography but aren't sure which images and sizes your friends and family would like? There's still plenty of time to put Calm Cradle Photo & Design gift cards under the tree. (You can print them yourself.) And for each gift card purchase of $50 or more, you'll receive a free 8x10 print of your choice from my portfolio (a $41 value). I'll ship the print for free to you or a friend. Here's how it works: Between now and December 25, 2012, purchase a gift card of $50 or more. As soon as I receive your payment, I'll email you asking which 8x10 print you'd like and where to send it. (I can no longer guarantee prints will arrive before Christmas, but they will ship directly from the printer.)
Have a little time to get crafty this week? Here are a few simple things I've made and written about this year that could be nice gifts.
