Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all ready for Christmas!  Well I'm not quite, but I will be.  So before you head out to finish those last minute gifts or go to that festive party, sit back and enjoy a little blog hoppin'.  Cristina at Crafting with Cristina is having a Homemade Blog Hop, you should have arrived from Lauren B at Lauren's Creative.  If not, you can go to the start at Cristina's.

The best homemade gift I ever received was a crotched scarf, I think it was the only homemade gift I have received.

Oh those tags are adorable Liz and as for the toffee it looks delicious and took me back to when I was little as my mum used to make it for us yum yum!

Trisha said...

Your tags on your bags are simply adorable!

My favorite handmade gift ever has to be the woven baby cradle that my Mom made for us when I was pregnant with our first son. It is a family heirloom that will be cherished and passed down for many years to come.

Happy Holidays!

Lauren B. said...

So so cute! I started making toffee with my mom growing up and then started making it on my own once I moved out. It is one of my favorite (as long as it goes well) holiday traditions. ;)

Your packaging is adorable! I think I may be scrap-lifting this because I haven't been able to come up with any ideas for packaging this year on my own.


kathlee said...

Those tags are beautiful! I really need to get some inspiration for I am making tags tonight! My favorite home made gifts where those made from my children in school. They are all grown and have children of their own now and I still cherish them...every one of them!
Merry Christmas to you and Yours!
