There's nothing like a heartwarming, homemade gift to brighten a dreary December day for friends and family. Don't string your loved one along. Send something amazing like this handmade, homespun paper leaf garland featured in artist Emily Hogarth's book, Send Something Beautiful. It's the perfect way to bring the outdoors inside during this winter and warm the room with deep hues of gold, green, and brown.

Children who are fascinated with the sea and its wonderful world of exotic creatures will have a whale of a good time exploring Learn to Draw Sea Creatures. With detailed, step-by-step directions for drawing over 25 amazing ocean animals, kids will love making art with a porpoise—I mean, purpose.

I am an artist. I am here to live out loud.
