Do you know about my Handmade Gifting Page? If you don’t please, please check it out.
You can click on the picture above to go straight to the page, or the link up there right under my header all the way to the right has some more info on it.
But the general idea is, you go and like the Facebook page. Then each month I have a post you can nominate someone on. I like to hear why you nominate that specific person in about one sentence. I love it when people nominate others who are having a hard time, in the midst of a medical issue, or relationship problem. It’s nice for everyone, but especially people in rough times to feel love. And what better way to receive a handmade item specifically for them. At the end of the month I randomly draw a name and then send that person a gift on behalf of the Nominator. No Stings Attached.
Just a few of the gifts I have made. You can click on the description to get more information on each one in their blog posts.
I usually don’t give items I have in my shop away, but sometimes, as you can see, if the item fits for the person I make one specifically for them. I find it a fun way to express my creativity in items I may not sell, or use for myself. I also just like giving to people, and I feel my creative gifts are a gift from God, and I have the responsibility to share what He has given me, be it by making things for people or teaching people.
I don’t always blog about the gifts, so you can see more in the albums on the Facebook page. I would love it if you came and had a visit.
I made these Silly Monsters for some of the special Children in my life. They are so fun to make and personalize. Each is made from a super soft towel material and has eyes, mouth, and teeth made from wool felt. The belly and ears are soft cotton. I had so much fun personalizing them for each child.
I made tags for each Silly Monster telling there new owners what they liked and how to take care of them. I think they where a big hit! :)
I didn’t get a chance to take good pictures of them close up before giving them so these pictures are of the Silly Monsters in there natural habitats. I am hoping to get good pictures of the one I made for Luke awhile back and have a pattern tutorial for you all.
