I didn’t plan it, but many of our Christmas gifts were handmade this year. Not all by me, but handmade none the less.
It started in September when my daughter and I made our annual Dill Garlic for our friends and family. We’re up to about five dozen jars.
Next was my grandma’s birthday and I made her gift, too.
Seven of my Ninja Monkey Purses went to good homes with my sisters and nieces.
I made my little nephews Hot Wheels bags, which I managed to avoid getting any photos of. I also made them a Velcro Catch Catch Ball Game from Craft. No photos of that either. I know, I did get a shiny, new camera for Christmas.
My two bigger nephews got Devil Sticks, which I learned how to make from Randomdude. No word on whether they’ve mastered them yet.
My dad and daughter each got a coffee cup sleeve. My husband made a wooden planter box for some friends.
I also ordered a couple of things from Etsy sellers. My mom loves working with yarn, so she got this yarn bowl from AngelaIngram.
We gave our son money to buy a new bicycle, so I bought this bike keychain from BicycleGifts to hold his rolled-up “gift certificate.”
The only sad part of all this, besides the appalling lack of photos, is I didn’t have time to finish sewing the kids’ Christmas Eve pj pants. Oh well, January is a good time for new pajamas, too.
