homemade gift ideas~

Well I haven't been around my blog much over the holiday weekend.... I have a good excuse honest!!!
Papa Bear had the week off, and since we don't get advantage of having Papa Bear around very often.... we took full advantage of him.
I had him hang some much needed shelving in the new learning area, and we made a semi-sewing area in my bedroom.
I want to make some homemade gifts for everyone this year. {We will see how this works}.
Here's a few ideas I am pondering over for some of my A's.....
A7 a jingle bell ball I saw this posted on homemade by Jill, she got the idea from grand revival.
{as a side note, I just finished making 2 of these, in about 1 hour to 1 hour and 20 mins}

LOVE these Black Apple Dolls again, saw these on homemade by Jill. The pattern is on Martha Stewart. These are a must, for A5 & A6

I have seen tons of cute ideas for A2 & A3, now for the older boys....hmmm
Any suggestions??
I've seen some cute matchbox car cozies, but A4 is probably too old for something like that.


  1. I'm actually making the dolls for Bella's birthday, for all her friends.

  2. Thanks for the great post! I now know what to give my grandchildren for Christmas. The mothers tell me they have no more bookshelf space. Enough with the books already Grammy. Your ideas will be perfect. I'll go fabric shopping tonight.

  3. Marlina..I guess great minds think alike!! The reason I love these doll is you can personalize them so easily.. my opinion, you can never have too many books. Though Papa Bear, does like to mention the amount of books we own. Like everytime I want to move a bookcase, or a learning room!!
