The Weekend of Homemade Gifts....

This was the weekend to get some of our homemade gifts completed. I have blogged about the bath salts before and this weekend we did Vanilla, Cocoa Butter, and Plumeria scents. We also did our "Blizzard Bites". I have never done a "gift in a jar" but I figured anything covered in white chocolate had to be yummy. You can find these recipes and printable tags at Organized Christmas.

Next were some snowman ornaments. Now, my mom came to me with this idea that she had seen at a craft show. I DO NOT sew and knew there was no way I could make a stocking hat and I can guarantee you I am NOT an artist of any kind but I totally copied the face from the original........let's just say they each have their own character!!! We made one for each of the grandkids on my mom's side of the family. I think they turned out cute and it was pretty much just felt, frosted ball ornaments and paints.

wow! you're crafty! Those are great gifts

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
