Here are a few tips for handmade gift-giving along with a list of books to get you started on your own handmade gift giving spree!

    Poinsettias!

    With their large, predominately red or white leaves, the poinsettia is the botanical representation of Christmas. Right after the evergreen tree. And mistletoe. And holly. Wow, there are a lot of plants associated with Christmas, but the poinsettia is the only one that is deadly!

    Not really. Poisonous poinsettias are a myth. While eating them can cause profuse vomiting, they will not kill you, or your pets. But really, they taste terrible so DON’T TRY IT!
