Tis the season to be busy! As I read Karen's post from yesterday, I thought, geez- I really am celebrating every moment I can. EEEVVVVERY moment. Like, where is all my time going?
I am not complaining, its full of fun times.
However, I am just starting my handmade gifts, and feeling very behind in that regard. All is good though, I think I have most of my weekend off to work on gifts.
We have had lots of snow here on the east coast as well- which delays things. It's not even winter and it's snowed at least three times in the last two weeks. It is simply beautiful though. Plus- having snow this week allowed me to sleep in on my birthday (two hour delay- YAY!)
So it really is the season, and I have felt very blessed by friends and family already. My kids love making gifts- here are some of my handmade birthday gifts they gave me!
This may be my favorite, because, where else could I get a robot ninja?
My youngest made me books for my reading pleasure..........
I didn't get to make any ornaments yet, and I usually like to. Perhaps this weekend I can.
I have found some ladies who are totally on the ball, and made some killer handmade love this holiday.
Diana P of Suburban Girl Studio made these great ornaments for gifts. (by the way, she has some little charms for jewelry in her shop, like these ornaments- perfect for the season)
She even made homemade tags! I love those sort of details, I am so bad at them myself.
Heather Powers of Humblebeads, a endless source of creativity, made these ornaments, that could even be customized. I love them!
Erin Praiz-Hintz of Tesori Travati made this as a gift for Heather- isn't it darling?
And Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads broke out the polymer to make this cute little guy!
I really like seeing everyone put their handmade bead and jewelry skills to use making something a little different then the norm. This is a great way to make gifts for people whom may not wear jewelry!
Anyone else making ornaments for the Holidays? Is it a tradition, or something new? And what is your favorite medium?
