Handmades :: 2011
There were few handmade gifts this year. Well, our gift giving was almost entirely handmade, so really I suppose that should read ‘there was very little gift giving this year’ and so it goes. That’s what happens, i’ve decided, when you’re under the weather for not only the month of december, but also the month of November. you know, the crafting month.
and we made bird seed ornaments. These i love. I followed a recipe found on pinterest — though next time i would use 2 env. of gelatine because they were too delicate!
We also made soaps (which i failed to photogaph) with the kit that elizabeth got for christmas last year. she was sooo excited to make and share soap. Alexandre made the soap tag (i scanned and reprinted)
this is the care package I sent to New Zealand — which may or may not have arrived yet. It’s far and I was very late sending it. It consisted of our annual family calendar and a small stack of film proofs. it was hard to part with them… but they since they were of HER family I thought I should. And I have the negatives, I can reprint…. (and get gorgeous darkroom prints. oh to have my darkroom…)
Two more post-christmas post coming soon — food & mama handmades.
