Hello my friends and welcome to day 2 of
Today we will be linking up our 'Homemade Christmas' over at Carol's Art and Sand
Carol is always whipping up something fabulous. Whether it be her wire creations, sweet hearts, etc. Her hands are never idol!
I know that many of you are like me and just have the need to 'create' :)
I have always been a tinkerer. Playing around with vintage items is one of my favorite things to do.
Last year I created this Christmas scene on a large tart tin glued to a candlestick base.
I love using little trinkets and old tins!
And Santa mugs seem to be the perfect vessel for a
bottle brush tree.
I often find myself picking up tacky old greenery and picks at thrift stores. Just something about them take me back in time. This little basket took all but a few minutes to create.
I've shared my Ornament Tree that I made this year a lot. Thought I'd share the wreath I made last year.
I love pretty fabrics and enjoy seeing them come together in a quilt. This is actually the back side. The front is squares of all different red and white fabrics. I love dots and it worked perfectly with my dotty garland hanging on our staircase.
I've shared this quilt a lot. I made it about 10 years ago. I adore red work embroidery.
This stocking quilt is very warm and cozy. Perfect for wrapping up in on a cold winters night.
This is a small table topper in the 'crazy quilt' pattern. I love the fabrics!
I love paper as much as I love fabric! Although, I don't work with it nearly as much as I use to.
Last year two friends and my sister in law swapped pages to make a fun Christmas photo album.
I've added some photos, but continue to add more. This is one of my favorite photos of our granddaughter, Taylor. She is 18 now.
Jordyn is 16 now, but never too old to sit on Santas lap. (wink)
I love creating gifts for my friends.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the things that I love creating.
Everything is always better when it's homemade!
What's your favorite thing to make?
