my mom purchased these two scarves from me for my grandmas. my mom does try to embrace the handmade, as well. she also commissioned me to make a photo book for one of them using one of those online photo place, but i left the captions blank and hand wrote those in and drew in a family tree in the back. sadly i didn't take any photos, but i'll get some eventually.
our family stockings. in order: barry's, georgia's, wiley's, and mine. they are small stockings, as i think those big stockings are a bit ridiculous (and expensive to fill!)
this is our new nativity. obviously i did not make this. i purchased it from an exceedingly talented local woodcarver. i had looked for years for a nativity that was special AND that the baby jesus was removable. baby jesus isn't born until christmas, so he doesn't belong in the nativity until then! anyhow, this fella made it happen. he makes so many gorgeous things, so you should check him out: http://www.jimcarves.com/
i made this for my 1 1/2 year old great niece, addie. it's a little felt house that is kinda like a purse and a little colorful egg 'family' that fit inside.
my niece, baylee (13? 14? - geez, i should know this), has a thing for daschunds and recently took up a cooking class. why not make her a wiener dog apron?!?! it turned out super cute, and i made a little matching flower barrette to jazz it up. i think she's probably too cool for the barrette, but little addie will likely take it off her hands.
i got these adorable little cars on etsy from mervs cars for my great-nephew and god-son, nicholas.
