As a crafter, I know how long it takes to make some handmade gifts. Items I receive need more than the few minutes of love I can give it, so I’m happy to post these Handmade Gifts posts that showcase great handmade cards or gifts I have received.
Here’s one of my favorite gifts this holiday – a handprint calendar from Brielle! She came home with his adorable crafted book from daycare days before the holiday and was so happy to show it to us on Christmas morning. Each page includes a seasonally appropriate handprint or footprint painted design, which you already know we LOVE in this house!
Allie has done it again! Made ultra cute and warm knit hats for my girls!
Remember this one she made for Brielle’s first winter? If someone saw that photo I’d bet they’d think it WAS Hailey but no that’s Brielle and I can’t wait to don this pastel print on her sister.
Or what about this one Allie made last year? If you follow me on instagram, you’d see Brielle been sporting it a lot this season!
This year Allie gave the girls two new hats with different styles, of which Brielle has grown a liking to both. Even if they are a bit on the bigger side, this girl loves a nice slouchy hat (hipster in the making?) and will continue to wear them in future seasons! And yes mommy was reminder her “gentle gentle!” while the above photo was shot only 2 minutes after opening our package of hats. Thanks Allie!
