I have always enjoyed a handmade Christmas. I grew up with a mom who loved to sew, embroider, quilt.... She would make many of her gifts. My favorite ornaments were handmade for me by people I loved...
I guess I am carrying on the tradition. I try to find some fun projects each Christmas season and make them for gifts and to sell.
I also love to upcycle vintage items.
Having the Antique booth was a perfect fit for me... This year I have filled vintage bottles, salt and peppers, candlesticks and even an old lantern with glittered trees. I also made my ornament bottles to sell again (sorry, no picture of these)
I made 2 new ornament wreaths. I am in love with this pastel wreath with the reindeer center.... They will go to the booth tomorrow.
My project for today is little ornaments made with vintage small Christmas characters, I will share when I have some finished ....
I feel that giving something handmade has more meaning, giving something upcycled says you are trying to make a difference and to be a little selfish...it feeds the soul to create with love!
