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????


Mama Cass Elliot - Make Your Own Kind Of Music

i just can't get enough 60's-70's music.

I made 2 pairs of mittens, 3 hats, two cowls, one scarf, and embroidered 7 kitchen towels for my mom. Phew! It sounds like so much when it's in a list like that! Merry Christmas, I love the deer!

Not a goddamn thing. That's okay. I will admire the mini-terrariums and be shamed into starting christmas knitting in january.

I made an afghan from hell (LOL), hat and facecloth-that was it. Some shea buttah too.

Love the Mama's and the Papa's-showing my age here, but that was the music my parents listened to when I was just a wee one and now I have all the CD's-Janis Joplin, Mama's and the Papa's, etc.

I made two dishcloths in the school colors to give to a fellow employee.

Martha Stewart had a similar idea with the mason jars and made them into snowglobes.
