Hey there, I’m Angela and welcome to my Savvy Homemade.
For years I’ve been making handmade things. I’m always in the kitchen, shut away in my craft room or generally hot gluing up a storm around my house. Not everything I make turns out amazingly, but we’re all human and we’re always learning.
And learning to make my own handmade things to use myself or gift to loved ones, has been one of the most satisfying journeys of my life… and I’m not done yet!
There are so many things to discover so why not come along for the ride? Grab your apron and load your glue gun, let’s make handmade gifts together…

Getting Creative Around The Home:
While the economy was still getting back on its feet, we had to watch the pennies and save those dollars. making handmade things to help do things cheaper than normal seemed like a logical idea to us, and making your own things is a great way to save cash.
With so many comments and emails asking where we get our ingredients for recipes and the equipment used for our handmade things. I thought it would be great to create a page that links to all of the guides on this site and the items involved.
