I like making stuff for people.
I am not very good at keeping it a secret.
Usually I will say (to each person)
“Hey, I think I will make you this thing for Christmas, would you want it?”
and if they say yes,
I make it.
Here are my handmade Christmas gifts so far:
Aprons (for most)
This mini-apron (about 1/3rd the size of a normal apron) is for Jenn’s little girl Ari
This is the other-style apron I made, no pockets, but cute little hearts instead!
Another pocket apron! I like this one best I think, since grey and yellow are such pretty colors together.
Teacup Candles (for a few who I don’t think would want aprons)
Missy and I tackled the teacup candles last night after aerobics. They’re not too hard to make, and now, after the first few we made, we know what we want to do with the next batch (i.e. use real food coloring rather than cocoa powder as food coloring…). We still haven’t decided if they would be better With their saucers or without–we do have saucers for them, but they take up more room that way.
