A Christmassy kind of weekend

There was some of this:





ALL of my gifts are now wrapped, ALL of them are handmade :-)


A quick last minute make:




Which used up the last few Christmas charm squares.


And a whole lot of these:






Little extras for the famalam. A while I don't think they're a scratch on Bakerella's version, they are pretty cute! 




Especially the ones I made for my little niece and nephew :-)


How your weekends have been good and Christmassy too!

  12. Oh yes...all my gifts are wrapped and equally as pretty as yours and all my gifts are also handmade..........when I close my eyes and dream! SERIOUSLY??? I wrapped a couple today because I have to take them to work with me tomorrow. And I did make 2 handmade gifts for the my daughter (an iPad case for her iPad she is getting) and a matching laptop case - they both match her book bag I made earlier in the year. Oh and I am working on Callee's quilt...there is hope (only a sliver but still hope). SERIOUSLY?? All handmade???
