It's never too late...

That's what I was told, at least. I was recently reminded that it's been nearly an aeon since I last posted. When I replied that I had had great plans to blog about all of my handmade Christmas gifts and new pictures of Tyler, etc., I was told that it's never too late. SO...Assuming that is correct, here goes the start of my "catch up" the blog series.

I made the decision around August of last year that I wanted to have a nearly completely handmade Christmas this year. I am really pleased with how all of my creations turned out and especially pleased that each seemed to be well received. (Or else I am surrounded by fabulous actors.)

For Mom, I used beautiful Noro Kureyon to make a very colorful, very "Mom" scarf. For anyone who knows her well, you understand that this scarf will go with virtually everything she wears.

One thing about crafting for someone is that it really makes you think about what that person would like. It's not enough just to make something that you would like, it needs to be to their taste in color, style, care instructions, etc. I really think that this whole handmade holiday thing made me a more intentional gifter.
