Christmas 2011 was a tough one on us for buying presents. With that in mind I had in my head to make as many handmade gifts as possible.
|Sugar scrub made with SUGAR, Olive Oil and lemon zest! IT makes your skin feel amazing.|
|Rocky and Bullwinkle Coasters|
|Homemade salsa complete with some chips!|
|A quilted pillow for my sister (she is a teacher)|
|some adorable change purses from some lilly shirts that had stains|
|a coin purse for a teacher|
|a coin purse with dictionary fabric|
|a tote bag and coin purse and a cute quilted pillow.|
|Quilted bags and some aprons for friends.|
|a Christmas tote for my sister.|
|extra spicy salsa for my spicy friends.|
|an assortment of Jams and jellies to go with some homemade bread|
|They had the Cutest labels. My daughter learned to make jam!|
|earrings we made from A very old vintage leather coat.|
|this just makes me hungry. Homemade bread with the jellies. waiting to cool.|
|a Maxine quilt for cuddles on the couch.|
All these things were basically made with things we already had or re purposed. I happened to have a ton of cilantro growing in my garden that winter. And I had frozen Berries left over from picking this summer.
Cheers have a happy day! and remember to think outside the box.
