Christmas Craftin'

Last year, Jeramie and I decided to ditch the idea of going out and spending tons of money on Christmas gifts.  Our decision was fueled by multiple reasons, one of which was our need to save said money.  I was a little nervous about how our handmade gifts would turn out, and if they would be well-received, but Christmas Day affirmed that we had made the right decision.

We've continued with this style of gift-giving throughout the year and, thanks to Pinterest, I've found some great ideas for Christmas gifts again this year.  Of course, I can't share those on the blog just yet, but I did want to share some other crafts we've made this holiday season.

Hand print Christmas tree

Mop & Glo + glitter ... who knew?!

Paper-pinned & fabric-wrapped trees

Cute little snow globe

Other than the hand print tree, I made each of these items at craft parties over the weekend.  It was so much fun to get together with friends and create such cute stuff!

Now, to finish start on the gifts...
