Homemade with Love was born out of my passion for gift giving + crafting activism. I love making something for someone. Taking their interests into account and then being able to pour my thoughts of them into the gift while I make it, thereby loving them more. What if buying a gift for someone also made a difference in our world? 

Let me help you spread some love with a homemade gift.

Craftivism, Homemade with Love, Alexis DawTyne

When you buy a gift for someone you're trying to show 

  • you care

  • you appreciate them

  • you're thinking of them

at the heart of Homemade with Love is collaboration.
