Hoilday Time!

Well the Holidays are here! Thanksgiving is on Thursday and the Christmas and New Years are right around the corner. This year I have decided that every one's present is going to be hand made. Well, pretty much everyone. What am I currently working on? Well, last year I bought about 7 pounds of felt and never used it. (I was going to make everyone IPhone covers..) So, this year I have all this felt and nothing to do with it! In October I went to my friends wedding in Vermont and she had these great props on sticks for her guests to take photos with. I decided that I could TOTALLY make those. Now, I'm in the middle of the process and this is what I got so far.

had to make a Brian Wilson beard :)

Everyone should be prepared for me to shove these in your face and take a million photos and then post them on my blog! :) Just warning you. And then I'll frame it and it will be your Christmas gift! hahaha...Another felt project? Well, I don't want to spoil any gift ideas, but I'm working with felt, paint, a canvas and magazine cut outs. Here is a little sneak peak..

Once Christmas has passed I'll post the end results. I might even get eager and just post them ahead of time. I'm sure my friends and family won't mind a preview to their gifts. Are you making anything for the holidays? Gifts? Decorations?

I can tell you that many night after work will be devoted to cutting felt. I'm looking forward to it. Oh, and if anyone needs some felt, I'm your girl!


  1. ohhhh fun! i'm knitting all my presents this year. I'm knitting a beanie and circle scarfs for my friends in NY. Hand made gifts are worth the time.

  2. I wish I could knit! That's a great gift idea. And I couldn't agree more, handmade gifts are so worth the time.
