A Handmade Christmas

This year we have been focusing on a handmade Christmas for our girls. Some of the gifts I have made myself, others I have purchased from other talented crafters. I thought I would share a few with you before I wrap them and pop them under the tree tonight.

Two little dolls, for two very special girls, made with love by me-

A little knitted seahorse with a bell for my littlest girl who likes to make music she can dance and sing to-

These beautiful wooden figures are absolutely stunning, made by a true master crafter Rjabinnik-

A hand dyed play muslin by Forrest Folk-

Tiny strawberry girls and sheep by Spindlewood-

A little birds nest for my nature loving Holly-

I have found such pleasure this Christmas making and sourcing handmade gifts for my girls, gifts which I hope will give them many, many hours of happy and joyful play in the years a head.

I can't wait to see their faces in the morning when they open them- one of the joys of being a mama.


  1. Wow the sweet wee birds nest, did you make that?
    Your girls will love their presents. How wonderful to get 2 beautiful quilts, thank goodness for Cat and her helpers.
