xmas terrariums.
i didn't feel like making cookies for all of my co-workers this year.
other people in the store already told me that they would be baking, and i didn't want to steal their thunder or overwhelm everyone with piles of baked goods.
i opted, instead, for mini-terrariums in canning jars.
i used pebbles and potting soil i had on hand and picked up jars from the grocery store.
the vintage deer and tree picks are from HeyYoYo's etsy shop.
i picked up a bag of moss (for frog terrariums) on ebay and VOILA!!!!  easy, unique gifts!
my only regret is not taking better pictures, but it was dark and rainy so those were the best i could do...

what handmade gifts did you give this year????
