Chrsitmas is coming and it is time to wrap up (literally and figuratively) all of our handmade gifts...
In fact, 95% of our gifts this year are handmade!
A skinny scarf for mom..a hat and a guitar accessory pouch for a cousin
The no compromise cowl for my cousin..still not completed..!
gift baskets for aunts and uncles
contents include felted soaps, hand rolled candles, folded stars, dishclothes, and hand dipped beeswax pinecones (great natural firestarters for that cozy winter fireplace!)
ornaments with our symbol of the Worm and other family members...
I recently learned how to use a wood burner and it is SUCH great fun! The possibilities!
My New Year's "resolution" is to delve into woodworking. So excited!!
A handmade barn and animals for W...purchased from a very talented woodworker from MN.
Our solstice fairy...and some Christmas gnomes.
Hand dyed silk scarf; modeled by one of our favorite dolls..
I have discovered the hole saw...it allowed me to make some beautifully simple candle holders!
Whoa, look at the leaning candle! (our mealtime candle which W blew out all on his own for the very first time 2 days ago!!!)
I have been keeping very busy with my fundraising projects (rainbow stackers and playsilks)..
they are completed and the grand totals are as follows:
24 rainbow stackers
Thank you everyone for your support and thoughts! The money I raised will pay for my first course this summer in my journey to become an early childhood Waldorf teacher! I am so grateful!!
I am looking ahead and planning another stacker fundraiser for sometime in the spring...I think this little toadstool house will be it!! I am thinking of door and window details on the bottom piece..
...only a few more days until the light returns...and a few more until the magic of Christmas morning. I wish you all the most lovely and warm holiday. xoxo
