diy christmas

for many years now i have given one homemade christmas gift for a family member. i love to make gifts and they are always appreciated, especially by my parents who have kept everything i’ve ever made. this year i decided to challenge myself and make ALL of my christmas gifts. i wasn’t sure if i could do it, but it’s december 31, 2013 and i have yet to buy a gift this holiday season. thank goodness for our dear friend the internet. here is what i set out to make and the inspiration for my ideas:
