A Handmade Christmas

So I have yet to start Christmas shopping. Oh, I have a few things I have gotten here and there but overall, zip zilch nada. No shopping yet! I know, terrible, right? And do you know what's worse? I still want to make some handmade gifts. There's still time... I am optimistic.

There must be others out there like me. You know, the I-feel-like-I-can-be-super-woman-but-realistically-I-know-I-can't-be-but-I-really-want-to-try type? With this in mind, I have been scouring the internet, blogs, Pinterest, for easy but fabulous ideas for handmade gifts. (Click on the pics for the source.)

Have you seen all the dollar store mugs/plates projects floating around? You use sharpies to write/draw clever, sentimental, cute things on them and bake for 30 minutes at 150 degrees. I am a little worried about this one, however, since there are many failed project posts floating around also. 

I just love these sweet decorated pebbles! Plus, I have a whole box full of rub-ons that are not being used. Win-win!

There is always the option of finishing some of our wood designs for friends and family but, well, hmmm....I finish them and want to keep them! 

Little hand warmers are always a hit. And easy too!

Thank you to each blog/site for such fun ideas! Keep on crafting!
