Making Stuff

Just gluing some rhinestones tonight. They are so microscopic I think I probably ate a few…..

…’s a Christmas gift I’m working on… I can’t tell anyone what it is yet.

My mom flies in tomorrow and Brett’s sister and her family on Saturday. We have a full house this year and can’t wait!

Have you been making handmade gifts this year?

    :-) Ww are handmade central here, with a really tight schedule until Christmas Day (and beyond, ‘cos some family aren’t coming until New Year). Unfortunately we only finished painting our living room (our sewing, crafting, dining and tv watching room) last week so everything else has been on hold until now…

    Yes, a quiet book for my granddaughter that is fun, but stressing me out! Also some zippered pouches that are in the works. I have to start sooner next year!

    Yes, yes I have and STILL working on one! Love that last minute pressure, right?!
    Made a rag doll to look like a picture that my 4 yr old (then 3) granddaughter drew for me. Looking pretty cute! Plus felt dough and cookies in a cookie jar bag (cookie jar, compliments of Dana from Made). Having a “homemade” Christmas this year! I love those!
    Merry Christmas Ashley to you and yours!!

    Oh my! Crafts galore this year!. :o) Made gift baskets w/ mason jars filled with hot cocoa & choc. chip cookies, muffins, butterscotch cookies & cranberry muffins (leftover mason jars from my wedding reception) for the adults w/ picture charms, from your website instructions) as key chains. Smaller gift baskets for all the kids with great gifts I made from ideas I got from Pinterest!!! I love Pinterest!!! I’d attach pictures if I could. So proud of myself! I love crafting but just not good at coming up with the ideas. So between your website and Pinterest, I feel like a pro……..well maybe more like an amateur crafter! haha Have a happy and safe holiday!!

    I’ve crocheted a chunky scarf and a ruffle scarf (those things are crazy easy and so quick to make!) Baking has yet to begin but i have soooo many cakes and cookies that I want to try…We’ll all need bigger clothes in Jan! Have a great Christmas everyone!
