This is an idea blog that is dedicated to providing ideas for handmade sorority gifts that give of yourself.  Though I hope that all of you will be inspired to make some or all of your gifts, I know that often, that is not practical because of time restraints and other life inhibitors.  This blog also offers some other options for unique gifts that you can buy for your sorority sisters.  Take a look at the Sorority Sisters Store for your mascot or your sorority page with a wide variety of items for sale through eBay.  I welcome your comments and ideas of sorority gifts that you have made.
