Homemade Holiday [Gifts]

This was my first Christmas were I attempted crafty gifts. I think I did pretty well! Here are a few of the goodies I made for my friends and family. Thanks to my amazingly wonderful husband, who surprised me with a "non birthday birthday gift" - a Silhouette goodie making was fabulously changed! XO to that awesome man!!

Etched Glass: I was able to cut directly on contact paper making the template so easy to use.

I also made my mom a felt flower wreath for her front door. Go Dawgs!

What fun to give away things I actually made! It is so much more gratifying than store bought gift giving. Beware my may be seeing something similar come your birthday, new baby, new home... :-).


  1. I love it...and i'm so envious...How do you like the Silhouette? I gotta get one for myself...btw if you need more fonts you should check out They have the best free fonts...

  2. It's awesome! A far cry from the way I was cutting designs. The program is vast and I'm looking for new projects to do so I can use it in different ways.

  3. Love the plates we'll have to talk about that sometime.
