I feel very blessed to be part of a family that is full of creative, talented people. It was so fun to receive gifts that were handmade and now that Christmas is over I can post pictures of the gifts that my husband and I made.
My sister-in-law gave me this beautiful wreath. What a fun and unique way to make a wreath, it even includes yarn that I spun on it!
All of the great-grandsons got fun pillows made by my grandma. They love them and it brought back fond memories for me. We received some really fun handmade gifts as kids growing up.
This picture is really bad, but they are a pair of earrings that my brother made. He takes coins and lays them on the railroad track near his house. He then does etching on them and attaches twisted wire.
This is the felted wall hanging that I made for my brother. It measures 3′ x 4′. He gave me a gorgeous log bed for Christmas last year…
I have always wanted a log bed, but I also love the look of wrought iron beds and he included both. It was a complete shock and I treasure it every day.
Here is the finished wall hanging for our house and I gave it to my husband for Christmas. This last week has been really long and I finally finished it Christmas day at my parents. I still need to sew the ribbon along the top for hanging.
My husband made horseshoe wine racks.
This wasn’t a gift for anyone, but when I showed it to my friend she had a great idea – a felted pillow…
so, she got the first felted pillow.
and the second felted pillow went to my very special friend, Kristine.
There were many more gifts that were given that I didn’t take pictures of. It was a wonderful Christmas!
