In keeping with the Buy Handmade pledge, I am trying to shop and make many of my Christmas gifts this year. I actually started early but of course so many ideas are coming at the last minute. LOL
Some of the things I have been creating this week are these cute crayon rolls for some of Hannah's friends. I made one for her, of course, and she uses it a lot. She likes having a way to tote around her crayons and a little notebook with her. These are super fun and I hope that her friends love them as much as she does. The design prompted me to to make a larger one for knitting needles and I will be making a couple of pens/ pencils for journaling kits. I am excited to work on those.
Today, my pal Shosh came down for a little girly art time. She had a swap thing to finish and I had intended to work on my design team project but got inspired by her journal making and decided to play with ephemera. I won't share much because I worked on some other pressies but here is a sneak peek of some artsy bits.
All in all, we had a good day. Coffee, yummy lunch, art and laughter. We need to do it much more often. I am back to work on trying to figure out whast to get the Mom that has everything. Ideas??
