Handmade ~ Giving and Receiving
Quite of bit of crafting went on for Christmas Presents this year. Here are some of the highlights...
~These are some of the things I made~
Aromatherpy Rice/Flax Bags, made out of flannel with a fun applique, complete with a tag of instructions. These are great for warming up in the microwave, and laying on that aching head after experiencing the Holidaze..
Arsty Clutch for my Sister-In-Law, pattern is from Amy Karol's "Bend the Rules Sewing" Book. I added some simple embroidery and a fabulous vintage button.
Here are some of the things My Amaziningly Creative Mother made for us.
The Christmas Tree Necklace, there are earings to match to..
A Brillant Pendant, which there is a name for these beads, that I can't recall, Mom, help me out.
I call this the Crystal Ball Necklace, it looks much more beautiful in person. Its made from Swarovski Crystals, that are strung together with needle and thread, and each hole is the shape of a star. It was to hard to get that on film.
I love this...Its a hand knit Alligator Scarf for Blake..how cute.
These are sparkly Pine Cone Ornaments that Chloe and Blake made at school..
Complete with lovely hand drawn wrapping paper from Chloe... a joy to open up on Christmas Morning!
My Friend Annie, made this Candle holder, she works with Mosaic and does a beautiful job...
This is one of my favorite gifts, although it is not handmade, it is a gift card for my favorite store of all time... Anthropologie. Thanks to My Hubbie...
