the past few years i have done more and more of handmades for christmas. i have done a ton of things, you can see last years here (a few more). i do this because it is so much fun and you can save a ton of money trying to remake really expensive stuff.
i do make a few paper christmas cards every year. not because i think that people will save ours , but becasue i think it is fun and i love to get handmade cards. this is the foundation for our holiday cards this year. i have used the poladroid tool to make a polaroid of a impromptu familyphoto :) we´ll see how i will embellish it!
i have also made a e-card using a few templates. more on that in a later post!
this year i have a new list of handmades that i plan to make:
* pom-pom ornaments
in the making :)
* felted pot-holders (like i showed here)
* photobooks (i use shutterfly for these)
* photo calendar (i used the tool at big huge labs)
* hot chocolate spoons ( i am so excited to make these!)
one thing that wasn´t on the list are these log candleholders
a friend of mine drilled the holes for me, but i am sure i could have done it myself.
i bought metallic tealight holders from the craft store and tada! i absolutely love them!
well, that is the list so far. i am sure it will be more stuff.
i have been so inspired by these people and projects:
and many many more :)
