    I love stamping AND brush lettering so this giveaway is right up my alley. This year I made cute cup shaped, hot chocolate pouches out of cardstock for my niece and nephew. The pocket inside holds a pouch of hot chocolate mix and a gift card to their favorite stores! I hope they like them.

They were far from perfect – but she still uses them. One day, I will make new ones to replace them. We have made many gifts for them over they years. Handmade gifts are the best. From the heart.

    I usually try to make my Christmas cards and I love to make Candle wax melts in everyone’s favorite scents. The best homemade gift I have received is from my mom who is in a nursing home. She made me a picture frame with all pretty colors and lots of glitter and then made me a handmade heart with my name written in it in glitter. That is one of the priceless gifts I will ever receive.

She lost a hand knit afghan in a fire made by our mother who had passed away a few years later. My mom had knit another Afghan for me that I was going to give to a friend who had retired but never finished. I finished it and gave it to my sister who loved it.

It’s so sweet..and so funny. He was learning similes and metaphors and one he used was, “Her eyes are as red as her heart.” I think he was in 2nd grade…learning, but not quite there.

    How WONDERFUL you now have stamps! I have tried and failed so many times to learn how to do write so beautifully. I am visually impaired but recently got one of the new Clarity light pads that are out. One reason was to learn by tracing. I wanted to take your class when you were in Edmonton in September but knew I probably wouldn’t be able to see enough. Thank you for the new stamps and I look forward to getting some of your books also. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    I have given scrapbooks but one year I bought a big 16” round paver and mosaic tiles which I broke into pieces. Glued and grouted a pattern of white crescent moon, cobalt blue sky and yellow stars. I wrapped and put under tree and it was so heavy! Lots of laughs everyone trying to guess what it was! She loved it in her front yard flower bed. ❤️ (She passed a few years later at 60)

    I made a three photo picture frame for my little brother (he’s now 11). I rarely see him due to my relationship with our dad and his mom. I put pictures of our memories inside and decorated the frame. It felt wonderful seeing his room and it hung up on the wall a few years after I made it.

    Wow…I have made so many from stockings to all kinds ornaments to jewellery…mini albums or scrapbook pages that commemorate the life or an event of someone I love, would have to be the most important. One example…a photo of my Grandfather dressed up as a mall Santa from 1990 I scrapped for my grandmother…he died in 1992. The importance of sharing our thoughts and feelings surrounding loved ones should always be an open discussion and scrapping these people helps to open those conversations!

    I was telling my husband the other day that my favorite gift at Christmas was my mom sewing each of me and my 2 sisters an outfit. She would hide away in her sewing room and sew until late in the night, making sure we didn’t know what she was making. She was an accomplished seamstress! I’m sure it was because we had hard times and couldn’t afford bought clothes but it was the best present ever! That’s been over 50 years ago and still makes me happy!

By September, I make the soaps so they can cure (loose all their water weight and get hard), lotions and bath salts come next, and bath fizzes last. A month before Christmas, I send them their personalized gift.

    When I was about 13 my Aunt knit me a wine coloured cowl neck sweater with a matching toque for Christmas. I loved that outfit.

    One Christmas, I couldn’t think of what to get my Uncle and Aunt and I was quite broke too. So I bought two photo frames from IKEA, painted over the wood. I drew two pictures: one of my Uncle and his 3 daughters as Charlie’s Angels and another of my Aunt and the girls in Chinese cheongsam. They loved them!

    Every year the siblings do a secret Santa since there’s a lot of us and grows as we add spouses. One year my baby brother made me a calendar using photos from my Instagram that corresponded with that month. It had been my first year living abroad and was like a scrap book in calendar form. It was so thoughtful and I still have 5 years later. Next month I’m actually moving back to the US and it’s now an even more valuable keepsake S I say bye to the place I called home for 51/2 years.

    I have made home made calendars, I crocheted all my nieces and nephew hats for Christmas, every year I make a gift because I think they are more sentimental.

    One year, my husband and I painted ornaments together. I’d like to learn how to use my Cameo to cut out some vinyl (I’ve had it in the box for a year – don’t judge🤷🏻‍♀️). I also would like to improve my watercolor and lettering skills so I can letter my favorite quotes. As far as gifts for others, I made my mom a huge crochet Afghan that lives in her closet. I’m working on a couple of scarves for some teachers I work with.

    Do cards count? They’re the best gift I can give to my friends because they’re super easy to make and yet, when I give them, my teachers and friends smile at me like I’ve given them the best guft ever! And I smile like I had just gotten through an awesome book!

    I have made lots of gifts over the years, one of the ones I am most proud of are this little snowglobes I made and put on top of jars and then filled the jars with little ornaments or candy depending on the person.

    I make Christmas cards together with my sisters, paintings on canvas and various decorations, but one year (long time ago) we had a white Christmas and I made a love couple of penguins-snowmen for my parents, they didn’t last long but it is a great memory and we still have it on pictures.
