More great Gift Ideas

This craft from A Steno Pad For My Thoughts is so fun and easy. Here is a photo of one I have made. I love these because you can make the pattern bigger or smaller to get just the size you need. Just pick your favorite coordinating holiday fabric and start. It takes about 15 minutes for each tree.
I thought this craft from disdressed would be cute for a count down to Christmas, you can put little treats in each mitten and number them if you want. They're so easy you could make one for each family on your list!
This "Martha” craft is always a hit in my family. I collect buttons throughout the year and the kids have a button wreath making party. I think Mommy's Crafting has aslo make these with her little ones.

Gift Ideas

So let's get creative! Have you all seen 30 Handmade Days? I was lucky to find it last Christmas. There are tons of gift ideas!! Go check it out.

I found this this morning & think I will make some for family this year. I like to make one gift I can duplicate several times to send to far away family & friends. I think this calendar from I Heart Linen is PERFECT!!
What are some of the creative gifts you've come across lately?

Mini Challenge Part 2

Silly me, I forgot to add a Mister Linky to the 2nd challenge!! I will add it to this post. If you missed the original Mini Challenge, just check below, it was the previous post. I thought I'd share with you a real simple "gift list" page from my notebook. This is my favorite way to keep track of gifts. It's easy, it's cheap, and each page lasts quite awhile (using front & back.)

Sample Gift List
You can easily section off each page how you need it. I like to keep track of gifts I give to each person. You'd also want to jot down websites along with the gift idea if you plan on using a tutorial. Tamara is my niece so I wrote down her birthday... just in case my poor mind fails me, obviously this is optional!! I like to keep track of current sizes too. It's so easy to cross off the current one and add the next size.

This is a great way to keep track of favorite colors, cartoon characters, or anything else you might need to know. Gather some notebook paper and make your own lists. Don't worry about filling them out right now, just right down names & any ideas you might already have. Then when an idea pops up you have a place to save it!!

I will post the next challenge along with some handmade ideas in a few days!
