I didn't want to post gifts pre-Christmas, but still want to share. Part one: small personal gifts I mailed out this year.
Reuben "drew" his cousin Zander's name for Christmas this year. Owl babies (book & nest full) to go with the owl I made him for his birthday last year. From me is from Reuben, because he really begrudges any time I spend not giving him every bit of my attention.
I threw this in my mom's package for my sister Camie. I thought at one time I had her name (but that's because I messed up the rotation) and made her this for part of her gift. Still thought she needed it! I discovered the lovely blog resurrection fern when I saw this acorn necklace tutorial on another blog. Or three, because it is so great.
My mom got bowls and our great blockprinting project (more on that later), but I wanted to give her something sweet and detailed, since she appreciates that sort of thing. Mini bottlecap pincushion & needle book. The pincushion is made around a bottlecap (yup, the plastic Coke kind) so the pins don't go right through, and there are lots of tutorials out there. Like this one.
