homemade christmas 2008

i love the week in between christmas and the new year. it is often quiet and a good time to just be home and play! after spending the entire month of december crafting under a deadline, it has been nice for me to be able to craft for fun.

making all of our gifts this year was wonderful! i have never been as excited to give gifts as i was this year. being able to invest time and love into something for someone else made this christmas very special. here are some of the things i made this year:












i didn't photograph one fiber art by moonpie, one apron, 2 knit hats, and the amazing silhouettes john made. here's hoping he makes a couple for us!

how was your homemade christmas?

***update***
coby's reusable sandwich bags (sorry i forgot them the first time, brother)

I love all of it! You did so good. I caved and ran out of time, but we didn't do too bad. The grandparents did so good this year keeping gifts down to a minimum. I need to start now in order to have time for homemade gifts NEXT Christmas! :)

Wow, you were busy!! My knitted slippers, snowmen and ornaments pale in comparison. I'm inspired to start MUCH sooner this year -- say, tomorrow?
