And you know that means that Christmas is going to be here before you know it, so I’ve already begun my handmade Christmas gifts. The first finished project are these flower clips:
I found the flowers (originally they were all one color with a middle part) at Garden Ridge for $.23 each because they were “spring” clearance. I took them apart and changed them up some. Then I added a rhinestone in the middle, and on two others I added a bunch more rhinestones all over. I had some small petal leftovers, so I also made four clips for two babies in the fam. Last year my goals of making presents was only about 50%, but this year I plan to hit all of my goals and be done early so when the holidays roll around I won’t be stressed about it.
Here are some other things we’ve been up to lately as well.
