Handmade Holiday

Happy Christmas to you and your loved ones!

I woke up this morning with a crafty idea:
I made an x / cross-stitch rubber stamp and made a stitched snowflake pattern!Love how it turned out, and I'm excited to stitch-stamp more designs ;)

Last December 9, I held a Handmade Holiday Crafternoon for 30 other crafters (thank you all again for coming, even if it was the Pacquiao-Marquez fight that day!). We all squeezed into Pipino Malingap, but it was a fun afternoon of making Christmas presents.Thanks to HeyKessy for providing us with twine and washi tape!

I vowed that this year, all my gifts would be handmade. I made stamps for everyone in the family! PJ helped stamp and wrap the presents. He loves washi so much and said "Washi is God's gift to men." Literal, for men, because he claims it's so easy to wrap gifts with them. Now I can count on my husband to wrap the gifts, hehe! Here's our pile of gifts for the family.Can't wait to see little Jared's reaction when he sees that gangnam stamp (because all those little boys do these days is dance!)

And here's a cheesey snowflaked photo for you! haha! :PMay you all have a blessed Christmas!
