Merry Christmas!

Okay- so first off I have to show you what I made my sister-in-laws Harmoni and Makayla! I've been dying to put them on here but just to be PERFECTLY safe I didn't want to risk it before Christmas. I made them both jewlery boards! And those ribbon strips are for headbands! They loved them and I am soooo happy. And jealous! My jewlery board is SO BORING compared to theirs!
HARMONI'S JEWLERY BOARD

MAKAYLA'S JEWLERY BOARD

I also made Patty this pillow! She just recovered a chair a lot like mine- and she said she wanted a brown or gold pillow to put on it- so I thought, oh I'll just make one! I LOVE IT! I need to make one for my chair now!


I really wish I woulda taken a pic of the wallet/makeup holder/whatever she wants to use it for thing that I made my mom. It is soooo cute. So cute in fact that I DID make one for myself, but it's a titch different. I'll just wait for my momma to put a pic up later.

PS- the tutorials for the pillow and jewlery boards are coming later this week if you're interested! Both are pretty simple!

OH MY GOSH- THOSE JEWELRY BOARDS ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Danielle I love them so much!!!!! I can't wait to hear how they reacted. You are so clever to line the hooks with the curve of the frame- I would have gone straight across wasting all that space! So clever! And I LOVE those head band holders- I HAVE to make this for myself- I love it! You are so talented Danielle, i can't wait until you stay home and you will just make things like this all the time. You are so amazing!!!!! I used to be the cool one, but now you are! oh well, I'll pass the torch down. You are so amazgin! love you!!!!

Those are really nice. I decided that this year I need to get a good head start on Christmas gifts so I can make more things. I think there is something really special about a homemade gift.

Holy cow that PILLOW is INCREDIBLE!!!!! I have never been one of those, "I need that pillow!" kind of people, but I want that pillow! I can't believe you made it. Wow, you really ARE amazing. I knew you already were, but you just went up a bajillion notches. Holy cow. I can't believe your talent. And those jewelry boards are so cool. I want one, but I never wear jewelry. So much, that I only have 1 necklace and a couple pairs of jewelry, so it would be really bare. So cute! And a great decorative piece! Love the headband idea. Great idea! Love you. Oh yeah, I got a Red Mill cookbook, so I'm thinkin' I'm gonna try some recipes. They should have come gluten free stuff that I could fuss with a make dairy and sugar free too. Hopefully I find a good one or two! Love you.

The shapes of the frames are pretty awesome. Unique ones like those can be pretty hard to find. Awesome job. I also love the pillow! Can't wait for the tutorial on that one.

Those look so so so cute. We totally need some jewelry hangers like that. I wish that I could be like you and make whatever I want. You are such a good role model. :)
