Handmade Holiday - 2011

I don't have a new project to report on today but wanted to share some links ~

Jen, of Sewn Natural, just posted this great idea for children today - making a needle felting journal cover. (I think this is a great gift idea for parents and children to do together.)

She has some wonderful handmade holiday posts.  Be sure to check out her posts from previous years.

Abbi at Proverbs 31 Living has a weekly Handmade Christmas Post on Tuesdays.

If you have an idea to share, please leave a note in the comment and if you blogged about it, a link to your post.

Thanks so much and Happy Monday,


  1. Last week the kids and I shared how to make a simple, fun stocking stuffer toy for boys or girls:

    And today we plan on sharing a family favorite: "Woodle Making".

    I intend to join along and attempt to do a handmade holiday idea/gift/craft every Mon!

    Off to check out the other handmade holiday-ests! So fun to be able to connect w/ everybody--thanks for hosting this Tonya!


  2. Those journal covers are fantastic! Great idea :)
