This Christmas had a very Handmade vibe. I like that. Lots of things were wrapped in brown paper, and tied up with baker's twine and pom poms. I love pom poms.
My friend Jill made a sweater for my coffee. I showed Kev and said, "Look! My coffee is wearing a sweater!" And he said, "It was only a matter of time." True.
and this neck scarf for my mom:
And at the buzzer, I sewed three new pairs of PJs for Daphne (Christmas doggie ones below). Sadly, they won't fit for long.
Daphne made me these fabric nesting boxes at her sewing class.
I got some handmade coasters from my friend Chris as a Girl Scout Leader gift (there was also chocolate!):
Daphne and her cousins exchanged handmade gifts. Daphne got this periscope from her cousin Ryan, as well as a book safe. She made her cousin Carter a Christmas word book, some crayons she made with her Crayola Melt and Mold Factory, and an origami Ewok.
Jill and I had our second annual Marshmallow Day, which was a LOT of fun. I still have about 100 marshmallows in my freezer if anyone would like to try some.
And I made eggnog pudding shots with tiny spoons and baker's twine.
I took a piece of wood from our Christmas tree, drilled a hole, and made this ornament:
And there is homemade New Year's Eve Chocolate Mousse in the fridge, but I don't have a picture of it. Maybe we will eat it with tiny spoons!
I have a few more projects in mind...maybe for next year. I will be drilling holes in more things, and also cutting more bottles with my new Kinkajou upgrade. And I got some Finch gift cards, so there will be more sewing. But for now, it's back to knitting. Something for ME.
