I always participate in my online group's annual "12 Days of Christmas" swap. We are split into groups of 12 and we each make eleven handmade gifts, one for each member in the group. We each are assigned a number and that is the day that our gift is opened.
The gifts are always as unique and special as each member and this year was no exception. Here's this year's booty.
Day 1 - lavender oil (for de-stressing during the holidays)
Day 2 - wooden glue holder
Day 4 - Christmas "bag" recipe book
Day 5 - gratitude notebook
Day 6 - felt ornament in shape of Iowa
Day 11 - mine (see below)
For Day 11, I made shabby chic mini composition books. I covered them with old upholstery fabric remnants and lace. I wrapped more fabric around a vintage Santa image (one of my favorites) and added a bell and charm to a tiny knotted strip of fabric.
They looked so cool all laid out together.
Here are a few close up - they were all slightly different due to the charms and vintage laces.
With that, I wish you a very happy Christmas Eve and Merry Christmas tomorrow. We are on our way to San Diego to celebrate with the entire family. We will probably fly on Christmas Day since the flights are less full then. I'll catch up when I get back!
