I was a holiday snooper. You know, one of those kids who sneaks around the house looking behind the pots and pans in the kitchen cupboards, under the hats in the coat closet, behind the curtains in my parents room and, just in case it was too obvious a place to hide goodies, in my piano bench under the sheet music. I am not proud of this, but my mother should be proud for hiding our gifts so well, that I never found anything that I can remember. We always had such delightful, fun surprises for us under the tree on Christmas mornings.

Each year, I try to make at least one little something for each person on my list and this year will be no exception. Would you like a peek? I need to be careful, because reading is not really like snooping unless there is something to snoop out, so you will just get a little peek. Don’t worry, I have pictures of finished items in their entirety to share with you after the wrapping is torn away and the bows are safely stowed for next year.

This is a special gifty for a blogging friend.

And this is for a special girl in my life.

This goes with that. She will love it.

And this? Well, this is quite a bit of project to take on so few days before gifting. Cross your fingers.

Happy holiday making! ~Kelly

Operation Homemade Christmas!

So I made it a point to make a LOT of homemade ornaments and decorations for Christmas... well at least that's my plan anyways. My boyfriend and I will be celebrateing our first christmas while living together. & we quickly realized we have nothing to decorate with. All we have is a massive fake tree, with nothing to go on it or nothing to put around the house. So I decided to make a bunch of stuff & Frosty the crocheted snowman was born! He's my first attempt at an ami without a pattern. I'm pleased with him and just wanted to share! I'll be posting my operation homemade Christmas progress on my blog. I got lots of ideas I can't wait to get more things made and share!
