Handmade Christmas Gifts

Just wanted to drop in and show you what I worked on yesterday. I can't show everything I made because some of the recipients read my blog. I have decided I craft my gifts like I shop for my gifts. I would make something for a loved one and then make me something. That might be why I didn't get as many people marked off my list as I had hoped!!

I made myself this:



I made several more that I can't show for now!

And I also made these little cuties for the little ones in our family:


*I used the owl pattern from the RVA Autumn Online Class*

Yesterday I also received this in the mail:

I am wanting to start collecting viewfinder reels and set this out in our living room for our frieds to enjoy! I loved looking through them! It even came with a slide of old New York pictures!!

How is your Christmas preperation coming along? Are you doing a handmade Christmas?

Happy Thursday!!
XOXO

Amber,
You're amazing honey! Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. I really don't know how you get so much done and work too.
Love,
Mom

Carrie- I actually found the viewmaster on ebay and it came with the discs too. There are several on there and a lot that have the "buy it now" option. I loved that this one was brown!!

Mom- Thanks!! I learned by watching you all these years:)Love you!!
