My crafty mojo has been oh so low. This month has been busy with appointments and my energy has been way down again. Down time has found me getting out projects, only to look at them and think “Maybe in a little while. I’m too tired.” Boo! 😉
I was starting to think I wasn’t going to be handcrafting any of the Christmas gifts this year. But in the nick of time, I was able to complete a few special gifties. Yay! 🙂
First up, we have an assortment of hats, key rings, bracelets and a soft scarflet
Next up is a neat giftie for hubby’s Mom. I picked up an unfinished craft crate at Michaels, painted it, hot glued clothes pins to the side and added some fun wood accents. The intent is that she can put her miscellaneous mail (like catalogs) in the crate and clip important bills or wedding invites in the clothes pins. I am totally making one of these for me 🙂
Last, but not least – I made a beautiful beady watch band for my Mom. She already has a few and the watch face so I knew she would love it. I also made her some matching earrings but I didn’t take pics of those. I probably don’t need to say that I am totally making one of these for me also, haha.
We had a wonderful Christmas and I hope you all did too. We have much to be grateful for this year and many to be grateful too, for that matter. Wishing you all the best in 2010! ❤
