Our DIY Christmas: Homemade Gift Round-up

Looking back on it, it was certainly a wonderful holiday. I got to see my aunts and uncle that live in other states. I also got to spend time with my Grandpa and his girlfriend (I know that sounds funny, they've been great partners for each other since my grandma passed almost 20 years ago).  You can check out some of our photos, in a post that I'll be uploading soon. What amazing photographers we have in our family!

Now, let me be clear... making almost all of our presents was quite the undertaking. And I should have known better than to wait until the last minute for some of them. Can someone explain to me why I always do that?!  :)

It was stressful. I didn't like not enjoying making the gifts. I hope there's not bad karma or something mixed in with it all from how cranky I was while making them!

Here's a round-up of all the projects I made. Click on the pictures to bring up the post.

Salt & Sugar Spa Scrubs

One of the great things about these gifts besides the pricetag, is that they can be given for more than just Christmas. Baby block for a baby shower; the apron and chef's hat for a birthday; the personalized pot holders for mother's day... the possiblities are many. 

Hope you enjoy these ideas, and that they stir up some creative gift giving!
