Are you read for some handmade holiday bragging 🙂
We really do strive for handmade gifts around here. I used this tutorial to make these journals for the kids. The only tweak I made was adding a strip of elastic on the edge so the books would stay closed. I love the way these turned out, especially because when they need a new book, we can just swap out the cover. The tutorial was easy to follow too.
Mr Three got half way through opening gifts and then spent the better part of morning in his wild outfit made by my good friend Tawnya (love it, thank you!!) writing in his new notebook. "It's my work mom, just leave me alone" he kept telling me. How stinkin' cute is that!
Inspired by a friend of mine, I made Tasha Tudor's Blueberry Coffee Cake for Christmas morning. So very yummy. Thank you Dotty for the idea, I think this might become a new tradition at our house too!
I am looking forward to reading what you all made over the holidays too!
