Handmade Holiday Challege Finishes!


Today is the wrap up for my Handmade Holiday Challenge. Thanks for checking on my progress and keeping me accountable for finishing my 5 gifts. I ended up with a car cozy for my son, some wooden princesses for my daughter, 3 rice bags for the fathers, and a baby quilt for my nephew. I also have 2 great bags that I haven't used yet. I'm leaning towards keeping the big one for my holiday tote. It will be great for holding all of our stocking stuffers from my mom's house. She keeps our stockings to reuse and we always have to figure out how to get the contents home!
I hope that you have also been inspired to make some handmade gifts. If you got your 5 made, leave me a comment. You will need to link to something showing your gifts...your blog, Flickr, Facebook. You also need to be a follower. I will randomly pick a winner on January 3rd for a $25 gift certificate to Connecting Threads. I can't wait to see what you have made!
I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas!

I made a total of 8 tote bags for Christmas gifts. 2 for my kids to play Grocery Store with and 6 for our extended family members. There will be a more detailed blog after Christmas (bc 3 of the recipients read my blog and follow my flickr and fb)

We're filling the 6 with Homemade Chex mix, homemade Fudge, homemade butterfinger bars and homemade gingerbread cookies.

Thanks for helping me accomplish my goal!

I haven't gotten back to blogging yet so I just posted mine on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=628355590. Thanks for the challenge! I can't believe I actually did it!
