My Handmade Christmas!

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday! This year was by far my favorite Christmas since I was a little girl. I stuck to my handmade Christmas goal and made my family gifts just for them. It was time consuming, but everyone loved their gifts. So I have to show and tell!

For:


my husband's side of the family
a coloring book with pages for each family




my brother-in-law
He is headed to college for Winter semester, so I made him a box filled with ideas for fun dates in the area. The box included restaurant coupons, gift cards to different places, movie tickets, etc

my sister
a peacock feather headband and mod podged shoes



my dad
a photo mouse pad from Zazzle.com

my Grandma

a personalized crossword puzzle book. made the puzzles here.

my mom
a photo bracelet of her first grandbaby and a no-knit scarf

the neighbors

homemade hot chocolate

This year was so much fun I can't wait for next year!

  1. We did a 'homemade Christmas' as a family this year. Everyone enjoyed it so much that I think we're going to make it a tradition. By the way, I love the shoes!!
