Homemade Christmas Presents

After flipping through the pictures of my camera and coming across this one I was thinking someone must want a duck for Christmas.....dead or alive. Joking, love these Muscovies despite their occasional naughtiness. Had to chase a bunch of them of the neighbors driveway the other day. We caused quite a scene stopping traffic and all.



So I was calculating the other day, 5 more paychecks until Christmas...YIKES!!!

Gotta get a move on! Last year I made lots of goodies and I have dug through my archives and posted links below in case anyone is interested...fun to get ideas from others. Hopefully starting next weekend, myself and 3 others will be getting together every 2 weeks for Christmas crafting, cocktails, and snacks. I am psyched to see what we come up with!! I will have posts to follow up our meeting for others who are interested in making goodies for the holiday. There is NOTHING like a homemade present!


HERE ARE SOME CRAFTING LINKS FROM POSTS I DID LAST HOLIDAY SEASON:

~ Wreath Making & Making Vanilla Extract

~Soap Making

~ No sew fleece blankets

~ Earring Making

~ Body/Linen spray & Bath Salts

WHAT ARE YOU ALL MAKING FOR CHRISTMAS? IF YOU HAVE SOME LINKS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS I'D LOVE TO HAVE SOME NEW IDEAS.

I love receiving homemade Christmas presents and I love making them! I have made a few this year for family. I made a rice bag and some Spiced Tang Tea. You can find it on my Whispering Christmas Dreams blog. I loved your no sew blanket idea and bought the girls some fabric for them to make it. They had a great time and now have their OWN blanket made with love. Great ideas!

I like homemade flannel PJ bottoms/pants because my legs are too long for store bought ones usually. Maybe your legs are too short! I have an adult pattern, a young child and a middle. I have made these for family members for 2 different Christmas years, as they have grown out of or worn out the ones they had. I have some pink plaid John Deere material right now that is pre-washed and ready to sew a pair for my daughter, I think!!

I have a picture just like that but with one of our Muscovy drakes we used to have on top of our pick-up truck, I took the picture almost 6 years ago.

Hahaha, that duck is "ghost riding". I'll be checking in from time to time to see if there are more homemade ideas. I've never made soap before but it's tempting. Keep up the good work. Enjoyed the blog.
