Handmade Christmas

Now that things have calmed down a little bit around here I’m getting down to all the projects I would’ve normally done the beginning of December. I love giving homemade gifts where I can so this weekend my apartment will be turning into Santa’s workshop. I am testing out my new screen printer {more on that later}, making beeswax candles, bookbinding, and making delicious cookies. I can’t wait, it hasn’t felt like Christmas without fun projects.

    Handmade is the best (even if a little more time consuming!) – I’ve been trying to share a few projects in amongst the busyness on my blog too.

    Homemade gifts are the best to give, and to receive! They make Christmas so much more meaningful! Can’t wait to see pics from your holiday projects! 🙂

    Have fun — I would love to see pics of the finished gifts, too! Last year, I knitted scarves for everyone…this year, not so much! Oh well. Maybe I’ll start gearing up for next year. 🙂 Merry Christmas, Jordan!

    that sounds amazing – wish I could spend more time on handmade things – but alas, we have 2 parties this weekend and have to prep for one we’re throwing Tues. It’s all fun stuff though.

    Sorry to hear about your grandma. It’s wonderful that you are able to go and be with her.

    New screen-printer eh? I am intrigued… have you given up on the Gocco? I love mine and hope something gets figured out for getting more supplies.
    Happy Christmas!

    I just donated a bunch of beeswax 2 days ago. I almost asked if anyone wanted it but I figured no one would. 🙂

    Love that tree! Here’s what I did for some handmade office gifts this year…a big hit!

    I really enjoy your blog…from a fellow SF blogger!

    I love getting thoughtful, handmade gifts, too! This year I topped my gifts with a silhouette of the recipient (black image on white paper) framed in a spray painted dollar store frame in lieu of a gift tag. That’s about all I had time to do. Have fun getting crafty!

    PS Love your blog!
