Happy Holidays

One of the great things about having adult children is the people they bring into our lives. After a while the friends and boyfriends and girlfriends start walking in without knocking. The dog knows them and stays on the sofa and wags her tail. (Instead of going ballistic like she would if a stranger came into the house.)DSC_0009

I decided this year that my daughter’s boyfriend and son’s girlfriend needed their own homemade stockings. An official welcome to the family.

Enjoy your holidays, everyone.

date pillow

My cousin recently got married. To keep with the green gifting theme, and because I knew she’d love it, I made her this pillow that’s appliqued with the date of her wedding.date-pillow

I have a thing for personalized gifts. I think it comes from a long childhood of searching the racks of toothbrushes and  notebooks and bicycle license plates, always in vain,  for the name “Jodie.”

mini 3 ring binder

I remember when I first saw them; it was during back-to-school shopping 2013. . .  I was in love.  Mini 3 ring binders! Have you seen them? I didn’t need a 3 ring binder, but I needed one of these.small notebook cover
Just to up the cuteness factor, I made a cover and some divider tabs.small notebook dividers
