Handmade Goodness

I was so overwhelmed by the special and unique gifts that were given this year at Christmas in my family ...many of which were handmade.
I LOVE that!  
I wanted to share them with you....
Some that others made for me and some that I made for others.
And... all the awesome handmade on-line stores that I shopped at but couldn't show you cuz I didn't want to spoil the surprise in case the person I bought it for read my post (whew).... well now I can share all about these talented ladies!
I'm not gonna give it all to you today though....I'm gonna spread the goodness out and give you a sprinkle here and a sprinkle there.

1. Something I made for others
These dish towel aprons!  You can check out the post that inspired me {here}.  These are totally cute from the front but if you were to turn them over, you'd see that I am not a seamstress!  Thank goodness I'm not a perfectionist cuz these babies would have never made it under the tree!









2.  Something that was made for me
I was so blown away by the gifts that others made for me! This is SO hard to only show one today. But here is one of my favorites!!!  My oldest daughter and her husband set them a budget for what they could spend at Christmas and used it wisely.  They practically made everything they gave this year and we ain't talking rink-dink stuff!!  Check this out.....
A vintage cake plate!
They bought the plate at a thrift store and the candle holder at an antique store.
I think they paid a total of $3.75!!!!
That makes me love it even more :)

3. Something handmade that I bought for others.
Now I can spread the love for all the wonderful shops and ladies that I bought gifts from this year.

This first one is from someone I've already shared...Kate and {The Adopt Shoppe}.
Remember when I shared about why the word joy is so special to me and my mom? {here}
Well, I had Kate custom make this for my mom with the meaning my brother came up with.


She loved it.



  I can hardly wait to show y'all more of all this handmade goodness!!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful day.

Stephanie :)
