Hey All! Millie here with a new gift from the Handmade Christmas Blog Hop! A bunch of us crafty bloggers got together to brainstorm 1 gift a month we could make for the people on our Christmas list. By making a few gifts all year long that MIGHT relieve the usual last minute crafting crunch! See the link up below for all the great gifts made so far!
Mary, blogger at The Boondocks Blog, made a lovely gift using the words from a song and a simple picture frame. You can see her creation HERE. I loved the idea but had already made one gift with music and wasn’t sure what type of music anyone else likes. So then I thought of doing a poem but ended up getting distracted (ha!) and pushed the idea to the side. Then my oldest sister called with some life changing news (for her) and Mary’s gift popped back in my head! Part of the convo with her ended with her taking a week off work to go “find her happy self”, I said “oh that little pony tail girl with the freckles that giggles all the time?” and she said yes.
Hi all, Kristina here. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention homemade cards in the gift guide. A homemade card can go with a gift or even by itself. Your creativity is your limit with these. If you have a machine like a cricut the job is even easier.
I like to add embellishments to the card as well and washi tape is one quick and easy way to do that. One of the washi tapes I like to use is here.

Today’s gift is two fold – it is a product review to know it’s a great gift as is OR you can make it and give as a gift. What is it? Tie Dye Soap!!
Hey all! Kristina and I try to make an afghan each month for Newborns in Need to share with everyone. You can see our past patterns HERE.
Today I want to share with you a fun new Rainbow Weave Afghan.
For this weave, I kept it simple but I have so many ideas running through my head to make this simple afghan even better! I am thinking you will be thinking the same thing! Gotta love unrestrained creativity! 🙂
Hey all! Join me in having some fun with bandanna’s today! This was such a quick craft and ended up so cute!! I had purchased a bunch of bandannas and some precut quilting squares out of bandanna looking material and cleaning out the stash I thought perfect time to use these!
Hi all! Kristina here. I know I missed a few weeks on the gift guide, sorry about that. We took a break for summer. Today I’m sharing a gift I actually got for myself.
Awhile back I watched an episode of Good Eats (great show!) and he was talking about espresso. I learned a ton from that episode and actually got a little metal pitcher to make cappuccino and lattes based on that episode.
