So, last year I knitted EVERYTHING that I gave my family for Christmas. . .this year I thought I would be smart, start early, paint a few things. You know. . .simple.
It didn't work out that way. . .but everyone loved what I gave them and I was fairly happy with the results:
A tree topper for my stepmother, who is German. She collects them.
First set of magnets:
Second set of magnets:
First set of necklaces:
Second set of Necklaces:
Three sets of keychains with matching letter openers:
A pair of traditional ornaments:
A pair of ornaments for my father. This is me with my grandmother. . .she died this year:
A pendant for my mother-in-law. This is HER mother. . .who also died this year:
CU of one of the long pendants:
A breast cancer ribbon ornament for my sister-in-law. . .who always runs the S.G. Komen race in Houston every year:
There were a few others that I didn't get shots of. . .next year I'm not sure what I'll do! (BIG thanks to the gals at Nomadic Notions here in Austin. . .who wrapped and assembled all the necklaces and taught me how to black a silver chain.)
Thanks for looking, kids.
