Handmade Christmas

This year, I will be celebrating the holiday season with Handmade Christmas 2010.

handmade christmas 2010

For me, this means:

-Hand making all the Holiday Greeting Cards I mail out to friends and family across the country.

-All gifts I give this Christmas season will be either be handmade by me, or purchased from an individual who created it themselves.

-All wrapping, packaging, and gift tags will also have a handmade touch.

-For an added bonus, this year I will also be decorating a Christmas tree in all handmade, paper ornaments and decorations.

I would love for you to join me in Handmade Christmas 2010. You do not need to keep the same guidelines and goals as I’ve stated – find what works for you! I’d love to hear about what your plans are to incorporate Handmade Christmas 2010 into your holiday plans. [Also, may I encourage a Handmade Hanukkah, Kwanza, or generally winter merriment?]

    I love buying handmade things on websites like ETSY. I have no artistic talent so I usually don’t make it myself but I should try this year! I love this idea.

    Love this! We’re totally doing handmade Christmas–well, mostly, anyway. All new tree decorations will be handmade, and I am handmaking/creating most of the gifts I plan to give. Looking forward to seeing more of this project from you!

    Hi Heather! Hope you are doing well! I noticed this on your blog and wanted to let you know I opened my own Etsy shop recently! I only have aprons right now but more will be coming soon!

    I love this idea Heather! I’m totally going to join in and do handmade Christmas myself! There’s just something so special about making your own cards and really taking the time to individualize something for the special people in our lives! Count me in! =)
