A Recap of My Hand Made Christmas

Christmas was great this year. I stuck to my handmade/art supply pledge almost 100%. I was also the recipient of many awesome hand made goodies and art equipment/supplies. But of course the best part of the holidays is seeing family, eating food, and building fires.

Here are the hand made items I managed to finish just in time for Christmas this year.

Like a true procrastinator, I stayed up 'till 2:30am Christmas Eve to finish this cowl designed by my friend Melynda. The yarn is so soft and warm!
My mom just LOVES her new cowl!
  I'm so pleased with the outcome, and it was an easy satisfying knit.

For B Nummy I made silver cufflinks, every guy needs a good pair!
I have been planning to make these since I first moved to Ann Arbor (5 years ago). 
That's how old my sketches were for these! They were not quite as 'easy' as the cowl, but just as satisfying.
Did you receive any handmade gifts this year? Or perhaps make gifts for others? Do tell!

  1. Oh my yes. I made a copper bookmark for everyone, and all the females received a piece of jewelry as well; several necklaces, a couple of bracelets, and a pair of earrings. Whew. I had Joe hammering bookmarks as the days wound down. But I felt good about doing it.
