Hey, Readers! Need some new handmade gift ideas in time for holidays? I have two books from David and Charles that fit the bill!

Heads Up by Carol Meldrum features 21 projects to stitch and sew your own fascinators, hair clips and other accessories to beautifully adorn yourself! Fun and colorful, soft and romantic, or glittery and glamorous – there are lots of styles for you to make uniquely yours. These quick and easy to make projects include sewing, knitting, crochet and beading techniques. With step-by-step instructions, even novice crafters will enjoy creating these projects.

Make me I’m yours…Jewelry includes 20 great projects from phenomenal designers including Heidi Boyd, Julie Collins, Becky Meverden, Jennifer Perkins, Margot Potter, Heidi Pridemore, Susan Ray, Shirley Rufener, Dorothy Wood, and Jean Yates. You won’t find any boring designs in this book! Colorful, vibrant and inspiring necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings with easy to follow instructions will have you known as the most stylishly adorned – or the best gift giver around!

To enter for a chance to win both great books, simply leave a comment. The giveaway ends November 17. Sorry, this giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only.
