Sharing the Love

So this season I am trying to give handmade. Ideally, Stefan and I would make all the gifts for our family and friends but this is just not possible so some gifts are handmade by one of us, some are handmade by someone else, and some are just plain old mass-produced. Still, I am amazed at the amount of craftiness we are getting into our Christmas gifts this year. In the spirit of the season I thought I’d share with you a few of the handmade things we’ve purchased for our loved ones this year:

    I LOVE rosa’s dolls. Those recipients are very very lucky. Wouldn’t it be great if we COULD give all handmade items? Certainly a goal to aspire to.
