Christmas crafting well under way
I decided this year to hand make as many gifts for Christmas as possible. So I've made a list of what I want to make.........we'll see how it goes.
I was off to a good start yesterday making five little pencil cases for all the little ones in my life starting Kindergarten next year. I used some of the left over fabric from the library bags I made for Graduation Day at my girls playgroup. I filled each pencil case with a new pencil, a couple of cute erasers, a sharpener and a christmas ink stamp. Miss A and Miss B loved them so hopefully they will go down well at Christmas.
There has also been ALOT of christmas crafting being done by my two lovely little sweetpeas.
I have been in two minds about giving hand made gifts. I love the idea (would love to be on the receiving end I mean) and I also love the making (as the gift giver). But I know that some people who are not into craft may see it as cheap and just do not get it. None of my family or friends are into handmade like I am.
What are your experiences with giving hand made? Have your gifts been well received?
