For every occasion, my mom always says “Beth, why on Earth would you buy me something? Just make me something!” Because that’s a lot harder, Mom, and I make stuff for you all the time. She will have to settle for handmade by someone, if not her favorite daughter.
Of course we love handmade holiday gifts! We make a living on them, but we like to support other artists as well, and frankly, they’re just so much cooler!
Here are a couple of things I purchased for my nearest and dearest for the holidays (and Amelia’s upcoming birthday. Good thing she can’t read blogs…yet!)
Alphabet magnets from MiChiMaLAND (been eyeing these for quite a while)
Mr. Sogs’s rainbow monster will be great for Amelia’s rainbow-themed birthday party!
Tea Towels from our neighbor at Renegade Handmade Chicago: Kinship Press.
Some Biggs & Featherbelle Soap made a great hostess gift!
A calendar from All Along Press for myself, ahem.
A “Fence” wallhanging, also for myself. From IAmHome.
Simple post earrings for Carrie from Anna Ourth.
A sweet little necklace for Karen from Villa Designs
What a great Christmas we had! Next up we’ll have to post some of the gifts we gave other people.
