I'm trying to stick to handmade this year. I have a feeling I started to late though....

Very pretty and really cute. I have a lot of dishcloths already and I am thinking of giving everybody a dishcloth and semi-homemade salsa. I have a recipe. You use canned tomatos and jalapenos.

They are wonderful.
I started writing my handmade xmas list on the weekend, except I have to come up with more ideas. I don't think I can get away with giving people a bag to replace the identical one i made them last year.

Thanks for the Vashti tip. Still trying to find some more stuff of hers to listen to.

I'm also TRYING to make gifts for everyone this year, but it's soo hard. I've only just begun and I'm not sure I'm going to make it. I have a big embroidery project that seems like it may take up all my time.

i haven't gifted handmade stuff in a while. i'm such a horrible procrastinator and just end up stressing myself out. :P but seeing your cute little dolls is so inspiring tho. we'll see. . .

I am totally trying to stick to handmade gifts this year. I'm dividing it into stuff I make (i.e. sewing, knitting, etc.) and stuff I bake/cook. Wish me luck!

I could never stick to all handmade stuff. It would stress me out too much. I've been thinking no handmade stuff up until last night, but now I think I have to whip up some hats, mittens, and armwarmers for people. I can't imagine my dad wearing anything knitted...

Very cute gift!
