Christmas Gifts 2011

Here are a few things I made for Christmas gifts this year. I really wanted to make handmade items for cost reasons and for to add a piece of me to my gift giving this year.

Some treats we made at our annual "baking day". A day we get together with family and friends to make Christmas treats!! I gave these as gifts to the kids teachers.

I LOVED making these little note/picture holders!! These were scrap pieces of wood from my in laws-they recently had their kitchen redone. I just pain
ted, added eye hooks, ribbon and a small clothespin to hold pictures, recipes or notes. Super cute!

Even Jacob got into the homemade gift giving. He painted a canvas for his sister, CC and Nana.

This is melted crayon art the kids did for CC and Papaw. It was super fun and super easy. Wish the writing was cuter...but I am terrible with handwritting!

This is upside down and I am just too lazy to go back and fix it and upload it again. You get the idea. Another frame made with scrap wood. I loved making these too!!!

Mug Gifts!! Something to mark off my 35 before 35 list...which is actually the same list as my 34 before 34. I am terrible at getting things done on my to do list.

LOved making these crosses! They looked GREAT in Saints colors too!! I will surely be making more of these next year and for other gifts.

Nana's Bragboard. I wanted to make something for Nana to hang all her grandchildren's artwork. Especially since her new fridge is stainless steel and is not magnetic. However after it was made and ready...I really think its way too long......

The big cross I cut out at my Uncle's house. The smaller cross and fleur de leis was bought at Hobby Lobby. I spent a weekend at my Uncle & Aunt's house cutting out crosses and scrap wood. With the intent of making MANY of these!! I loved the 3D effect. I only got around to making 2...but plan on making many more!!!

Here is the other one I made!!

Not a Rebel fan but I did like the way this one came together. Super cute for some friends of mine with terrible taste!! LOL!
Yeah I am behind on my posts....
