Lastly, this is a great list of handmade gift ideas via nest of posies!



  1. Gosh, this post could not have come at a better time… I made all of my family and friends gifts last year, which included scarves, necklaces, etc etc etc, and even quilts… I got SO incredibly burned out on doing such ridiculously hard and excessive crafts (those two quilts I made last year for my friends were my first ones… ever.) and so this year I am at a standstill on what to give as gifts. Thank you for posting these two links, especially the last two… I’m going to go through them and hope I can find a little inspiration! :)

  2. thank you so much for including my homemade gift ideas in your post!

    LOVING your wreaths in your header! they are beautiful. i love working with felt.

    happy weekend.

      I love those owls, too!!! I was lucky enough to meet Angela of Button Bird Designs a couple of months ago, and she is so, so creative! There were lots of other great ideas on that post, too. Have a great day! xo
