I know, Freya, I adore the cupcake ornaments, too! If my twins didn't take every ornament off the tree, I would make some!

Revanche said...

When this posting arrived in my in-box via email notificataion, I forwarded it to Jen from 'Lipstick and Laundry'. She is always making cutsie type things and I was right, she wants to make a couple of the items listed on here.

She made a cloth turkey your young ones would enjoy!

Thanks for hosting -- there's a lot of great stuff here this week! My son keeps taking our ornaments off the tree and replacing them with his toy cars.

So I made this painting by hand.

Does that count as handmade holiday stuff?
